I spent 4 days sick in bed. I got up yesterday and thought that maybe I was really on the mend. Today I went to work and since I work in a hospital with a bunch of healthcare professionals, several of them took pity on me and told me to go home - I looked like I was about to fall over. And felt somewhat worse than that.
I seriously don't know if I can even walk a half marathon on Sunday.
I will go to Phoenix because I paid for the trip. I will go to the expo because I paid for the race - and I will gladly take whatever they give me.
I will wake up on Sunday and make a decision as to whether I can attempt this race.
I am really disappointed. But I have to say that all the way along with this race I have not trained the way I should have. I have been so injured that I wondered if I could run it. I have now not run for a week - and amazingly enough, I am now without pain. But I have got the worst cold and feel like crap.
I will just make the best of the trip - regardless of whether I can participate in the race or not.
