STILL UNDER THE WEATHER

FRUSTATING ZERO

My cold is still hanging on. I still have a low grade fever. It sounds like I could cough up a fur ball at any minute. I'm sure last night sitting out at the football game didn't help but there was nothing going to change that.

I have the USAF half to run in 2 weeks and my training has sucked. I have alot of reasons ot want to run this but a PR is not one of them. The race is held at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton,Ohio. I worked at the Cancer Center there for 1989-1991. I was married and had my daughter during that time so there are alot of good memories. My father(I'm an only child) who is 84 lives near there so it's an opportunity to visit and he loves to come along to see the Air Force Museum. He has also planned dinner for me on Saturday night for my 50th birthday. Last year I ran this and was overwhelmed by the patriotism and sense of pride in the U.S.. Military come in from all over the world to run and compete against each other. I know I can make it the ditance, my time will be slow but this one is not about the time but all the reasons to appreciate each mile.
