Well, some bad news.  Today it was determined that our youngest daughter has the H1N1 flu.  Now, we're all on tamiflu.  I also made the decision to pull the plug on running Twin Cities.  I was suppose to leave tomorrow, but under the circumstances that just wouldn't be smart.  I pray it stays under control here.  I know you hear reports that it's no big deal, but then there's stories of some fatalities.  My mind simply wouldn't be in the race and I know full well that marathons are attention hogs.

I guess it's back to building a better running schedule.  Ran 4 miles in the rain and cold today.

Easy 10 this morning.  Our youngest one is slowly getting better.  No more big fever spikes.  She still has really nasty chest congestion.  No one else in the house is showing signs.  I don't care for Tamiflu, but the alternative isn't better.

Just noticed that I'm closing in on 1000 miles in my shoes.  I never would have imagined I'd make it this far in them with no orthotics.

Cold and raining outside.  More mill time.  Not Miller time!

Ran 20 min easy and then broke loose.  All I know is I worked my tail off for the following 20 min and then some time near the end.  You can you tell I'm really scientific in my measurements.  Seriously, kind of angry since I'm not running a mary this fall and I don't feel like I'm fulfilling my duty around the house.  You know, bringing home the bacon and such.  All I'm bringing home these days is homework and  I feel like a confused soul of sorts.  Part of me wishes I did this career change years ago and the other part tells me it's too late.  I'm too damn stubborn though.  Always taking the hard way it seems and not giving up.   Not trying to be dramatic here, just real about how I feel.  As most dream about a day of retirement and that magical $1-2 mil in the bank, all I want is do something I enjoy the rest of my life.  Ever since seeing my mother and father die early in life, I don't plan to retire, just make the most of the trip while I'm here.  Think about it, retirement is a fallacy.
