Three Things Thursday ...

1. Revenge of the Pinkeye - Remember last week when I posted that Doodle had been hit with pinkeye? Well, it seems that the eye of pink has taken permanent residence in our home. Dizzle was diagnosed with it on Monday and Doodle (after finishing both an oral and topical antibiotic) woke up all crusty again today. Seriously? Isn't one round enough? Dude, if this doesn't clear up soon, our Disney photos are going to be scary ...

2. Post Thanksgiving Immune Deficiency - Did you know that such a thing existed? Well, it does. For the past three years, I have gotten sick in the week following Thanksgiving. I'm not sure why, but it hits me pretty much immediately after Thanksgiving dinner and it hits me hard.

And because I am a runner first, logical thinker second, I have been running this week despite not feeling great. Yesterday was rough. I didn't know if I just lacked motivation or if my body was trying to tell me I needed a rest day. I hoped I was running low on motivation and headed out in 40+ mph winds with G, J, K and two strollers. Needless to say, sometimes I question our sanity.

3. San Francisco Stalking - Last January, G and I traveled to Bermuda for the Bermuda Half Marathon. It was a FANTASTIC girls' weekend and we decided that we wanted to make it an annual tradition. After much talk (of where we could stay for free), we decided to run the 2011 San Francisco Half Marathon. (Feel free to join us!)

Registration was supposed to open yesterday. So, like any sane person I stalked the website ALL DAY waiting for it to go live. But, it NEVER did. Apparently, there is some sort of technical glitch holding everything up. And although, I know the race probably isn't going to sell out on day one, I REALLY want to register. It makes it all official. And then, J can't change his mind about me going ...

Hope you're feeling better soon!

I can't wait to plan a destination race with my friends. I have one in the works for VA Beach in the summer!

Kirstie said...

How fun! Traveling to out of town marathons with friends is fun. I am going with a whole group to Little Rock, Arkansas this march for the marathon.

Dang, the site is still down!!!

The furthest I've traveled for a race was only 1 hour. Bermuda sounds awesome. I live near SF and it's so pretty!

Michelle said...

Hope you're feeling better soon! I suffer from the same post-Thanksgiving deficiency - hits me every year! But I'm happy (or is it crazy?) to say I'm still running despite it!

Wben you do the answers to the questions - you always say "you listen to your body" HMMM, sounds like running while sick may not exactly be the ticket. Feel better soon (all of you!)

Terri said...

Ugh to pinkeye! :( Hope all of you are on the mend soon!

Holly said...

Stinks major on the pinkeye! I used to get it ALL.THE.TIME.

Perhaps an opportunity to stress to the girls the importance of hand washing? As I recall it's caused by bacteria. (Not saying your girls don't wash... just saying maybe they can get a lesson in bacteria now.)

I hope that made sense!

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

Destination race = fun and more motivation in training, right?! I hope you find the perfect fit!

And, take care of yourself! :) Get better!

Char said...

It's a pity it's not still Halloween. You could have put white make-up on the girls and dressed them as zombies with their red eyes. I hope it all clears up soon.

Deb said...

I hate the merry go round of illness. I hope everyone in your house is feeling better soon!

Katie A. said...

Pink eye is back! Blah! Sorry!

So excited you're coming to my neck of the woods! Seriously, SF is in my backyard! But sad I have to wait until July!!! Hmmm...maybe we'll have to figure something out!
Good luck girlie! Feel better!

Michelle said...

I have been fighting a cold all week and what's my remedy???? RUN! My husband thinks I'm insane. But tonight, I had to give in. I'm wiped and couldn't drag myself out the door. We'll see if a little rest helps. I'm not a believer!

Bummer about the pink eye. Super excited about SF. I haven't registered yet, but it's close enough that I may pull some of my local girls together so we can make it a fun summer trip too. Hope we can arrange a bloggy meet up. Have fun planning the rest of 2011!

Pink eye stinks! Have fun in SF!
