Down and Out For The Count

The Captain and I have been on our own little island of sickness the past few days. Not a tropical island, but an island of full of phlem, coughing, snot, sweating, chills and so much more.

But we are leaving this island of sickness and heading to a tropical island SOON. 3 more days. I haven't had time to get a new bikini, sundress or anything. In fact, I'm still laid up so I doubt I will get around to any of that fun stuff. Hopefully I have some sunscreen left from last summer.

9 on the 9th? Well, I didn't show up. But I thought of all you runners as I snuggle up on the couch with my bwanky.

I need to get updated on blogs to see what's going on out there. Hope nobody else is sick.

I hope you feel better! Nothing is more fun than travelling while sick (especially for your fellow airplane passengers :-))

Amanda said...

You've got more pressing things to worry about than running 9 today... getting better and some last minute shopping!!

Where are you staying Kona? We are going Fev 21-24 and staying at the Marriott Waikola...if you are there, look for the 4 drunk women sitting at the pool!

Aw crap, that sucks. Get better soon. All you need is a bikini and some lipstick. You'll be fine. :D

Thanks for thinking of us.

XOXO

Oh poor you! But you know what - you got whatever was going to hit you over with before your trip and that's got to be a good thing. Sunshine, rest and some time with the Cap should fix the rest of it.. Have a fabulous time!

I hear you chica! I'm in the house of sickness as we speak. Bleck! At least you get to leave and go to a tropical island! BIATCH :P ;-)

I've missed races because of illness, so this is totally understandable. Rest up for wht's most improtant: your upcoming vacation!

AnthonyP said...

This illness is awful. I've had what you have for almost 2 weeks, but it is getting better. Rest up and feel better.

Viv said...

Awww, I hope you get back to 100% super soon. At least it was before the trip, now you get out it outta the way. Bring on the tropical bid island :-)

Like Nancy said, all you really need is a bikini and you're set. Nothing cures sickness like a tropical vacation, I'm sure you'll be feeling better soon!

Lisa - Slow & Steady said...

get well soon!

Hope you start feeling much better soon. At least you both came down with this bug before your vacation and not during. You are going to have a blast in a few days!

Laura said...

Get well soon! We'll look for you at the next virtual race.
