Sunday Runday: Run or Rob a bank?

I took a full week off running after the race.  Partly because of the whole bronchitis thing.  Partly because Thatboy was out of town and the authorities look down on leaving a 2 year old home by himself.  So instead, Thatbaby and I would wake up, walk Thatdog, and get ready for the day.  Aaaaand I was just as sick when Thatboy got home from his trip.

So Saturday, Thatboy walked the dog while I slept.  And I felt pretty good that day.  Same routine Sunday.  On Monday, I decided not to run, but instead to just give Thatdog a little walk in the morning.  And I ended up coughing all day.  With my online medical degree, I determined that the cold air while walking my dog was bothering my airways, which were on hyper alert from the bronchitis. I came up with a makeshift idea of wrapping a scarf around my nose and throat.  That way, the colder air had to pass through something before it hit me, warming it slightly.  But obviously running with a scarf tied around my fave wasn't going to work.

"You need one of those loopy things from Survivor" L&O told me.  And as luck would have it, I HAVE one of those loopy things from Survivor.  Like the actual ones they used on the show.  Given to me by Jeff Probst. One of the perks of working on the UCLA Dance Marathon when I was in school.  Tucked in the back of a drawer, never used.  It's my newest running accessory.


  1. I hope you are feeling better. Bronchitis can kick your butt, rest, rest, rest!


  2. I know a ton of runners who run with those! And I always think, when I see them, that I should get one...
