At the end of last week The Captain started to come down with a sore throat and cold. Of course I doubled up my vitamin C and did everything I could to stay healthy - especially because of my upcoming race.
So, I ran the race. In the rain.
And now I'm sick. Sore Throat. Cough. Muscle Aches.
Here's the thing...
EVERYONE seems to need to make a comment like this:
"Well, you probably shouldn't have run in the rain. That's why you're sick."
I have always been of the belief that one gets sick from bacteria and viruses - NOT from temperature or rain. Of course, this is what I retort in a snotty tone. I guess I take it personal when someone attacks RUNNING.
But my question to you all is this:
Do you think running in the rain is what gets people sick or being around OTHER sick people?
