Here I sit itching to be healthy and run. Every time I lie down I have to get up; and when I get up, things in my lungs want to be free. It's not been pretty but I am making headway. I called to see the doc and he said no but phoned in a scrip. I have an antibiotic and I am taking it. I mowed the lawn this morning but felt tired afterwards. So tired I took a nap. Hence the horizontal-vertical account. If I behave the rest of today (do nothing) I will run a distance tomorrow and see if I have any lung capacity to work with.
Meanwhile, I am inspired by Susie's great run today. You will be too.
In contrast to my header there was sad news this week. My boss at my former employer of 23 years died at his desk on Monday. He was 55. He was my peer for most of those 23 years until he became my boss in 2001. I left for a better-paying character-challenging job 18 months ago but kept in touch. The sports world was shocked. The church was packed. The media was all over it with eulogies. A sad loss. A good man and friend to many. Left a 6-year old daughter and wife.
Which reminds me. If any of you are around for my funeral, make sure they play some Tom Petty ("Free Fallin'") in the line up of pre-service tunes.
