I think the cold was coming on Sunday, when I was out for my long run, which was supposed to be 12 miles, but trimmed to 8 miles. And then it probably didn't help matters when I sat outside listening to the radio while Hurricane Ike's remnants blew through Akron, tearing down tree limbs and outing the power so I couldn't watch the Cleveland Browns lose again.
I felt icky Monday afternoon, but didn't really notice until I got home from a busy deadline day at work. The good thing about that was it meant I could take Tuesday off. Which I did, skipping my usual Tuesday run.
But now of course, I'm freaking out about the race. I'm tapering too much! I'll be TOO RESTED! My training is G-O-N-E! I won't even make the first 5K. I'm DOOMED!
So, yeah, how's everyone else?

- Laura is trying to track me down and beat me in the Akron Marathon. Mayor Don Plusquellic has already declared a booze emergency for that weekend.
- Nitmos has discovered a new form of running: Akimbo Running. As with most of anything Nitmos suggests, I suggest doing the opposite.
- Another runner with a pee story, but Xenia makes it seem classy.
