Post-marathon and post-Sheriff’s run, my body needed a break and so I got sick.
However, I had already committed to run the Make Room 4 Santa inaugural 10K in Irvine with a bunch of friends, so I sucked it up and just did the race.
Most of the people I went with got all gussied up in Santa outfits. I demurred and wore a “Santa’s Little Helper” green rubber bracelet (something that wouldn’t affect my running) – thanks, Geri.
Despite having a head cold, I had a decent race, finishing in 46:12, out of the medals, but even so, I still felt sick at the end.
