Three Things Thursday ...

OK. I'm back. And would you look at that, I'm just in time for the latest edition of "Three Things Thursday" ...
1. Our family vacation was FANTASTIC (full recap with LOTS of pictures is in the works). Getting back to reality is not so fantastic. I have a laundry list of things to do, which includes a heck of a lot of laundry. We have ZERO food in the house. I need to catch up on all the things I didn't keep up with for the last nine days. I MUST unpack. And we have guests arriving tonight. Oh, and did I mention that the only one in the house that isn't crazy sick is J? Fan-flippin'-tastic! I get to put our life back in order with a monster headache, a nasty cough and three snot-faced little ones crying at my feet. Life doesn't get much better than this ...

2. Thanks to the illness that is rocking my world, I think that this week is going to be a recovery week. I ran four miles on Tuesday and had been planning on four to six tonight, five on Saturday and 11 on Sunday. Right now, I'm not sure if that is going to happen. I might just wait until Saturday and run five and then do a longer run on Sunday. I've heard that if you are sick and it is located from your shoulders up (like a head cold), then go ahead and run. But if it is in your chest, don't. I usually run when I am sick, but I usually don't have a cough either. Not quite sure what to do about this one ...

3. Thanks to Katye, I do not have to purchase race photos from the Princess half. She grabbed this one from the website. Sweet, right? And although I knew I was having my picture taken, I was genuinely having that much fun ...

Amazing pic! I am with you with the sickness. If it's above the neck and you feel up for it, go ahead, if not, I would take it easy for a day or two.

Love the picture! Hope your household starts feeling better. Glad you had a fun vacation.

I'm totally having a hard running week...not feeling it is the problem. Seems like there are a few of us in bloggy land with the same feelings. Hope it gets better.
