VM Rears His Ugly Head

Happy Holidays to all! Sorry for the lack of posts recently and thanks to all who inquired as to my whereabouts and well-being.

I've been (1) sick with the flu for nearly two weeks, (2) recovering from minor surgery to remove several "suspicious" skin lesions which turned out to be abnormal but benign...whatever that means, (3) recovering from the foot pain discussed in the post below, (4) spreading the flu around Vail, CO while skiing with the Tri-Brother, in the best conditions I've ever encountered, (5) dealing with the usual holiday stressors and (6) trying to surmount some unusual (and hopefully unique) stressors that I'm not quite ready to discuss here, but stay tuned.

I am staying home from P.F. Chang's Rock 'n Roll Marathon. I didn't make it through a single one of Karyn's scheduled long runs and didn't really give a damn. But today was the first day of training for what really matters - IMWI 2006. I got through the workout and felt OK, so that's ONE and tomorrow's TWO, etc.

Time to get off my ass, stop feeling sorry for myself and train like I mean it. That's how I am. Now aren't you sorry you asked?

Glad to know you're alive out there!

Did you catch the Bears/Packers game on Christmas? My husband (bears fan) made me (packers fan) watch the whole thing. My eyes are still burning.

Take care of yourself and welcome back to the tri-world.
