I already know that today will be a big fat "zero" because I am sick and staying home from work today. I have a horrible sore throat that came about from: (1) running 20+ miles in shorts in near-freezing temps; (2) lots of yelling at the white elephant gift exchange at my work party; (3) standing around in the cold for 30+ minutes deciding where to go after the restaurant closed; and (4) not enough sleep for several nights. Not to mention, I am STILL extremely sore from the 20.5-mile run on Saturday. I'm not sure why I am so sore. I haven't been this sore in a very long time.
I'm glad I'm staying home today because something is going on with my family. In the last two weeks, my brother had hernia surgery, my other brother got food poisoning (no hospital stay required), my mom got a horrible nosebleed that required a trip to the ER and some very painful treatment, and my grandfather went to the hospital last night with kidney stones! I'm staying home and locking the door.... :-)
