Part of my July challenge is to choose a picture a day and write a paragraph. I didn’t post yesterday’s picture, so today is a 2-for-1 day.
DAY 1: I woke up feeling like a train wreck- headache and nausea. I decided to power through and eat some toast and drink coffee in hopes it would wear off. Wrong. I realized halfway to the gym that the urge to hurl was rising. (Ha!) I went in, made my apologies, and headed home where I spent the next 5 hours on my couch sleeping. The cats (all but Gracie) kept me company while I embraced the fetal position. I managed to eat some bland foods and no vomiting occurred!

DAY 2: I was debating skipping my run today due to yesterday’s grossness and concerns my stomach was still dodgy. However, it was a speed work day, mile repeats, and I’m 16 weeks out from the marathon so I decided to go for it. The two crazed pictures are before and the calm looking picture at the bottom is after. I’m glad I got out there! (And I got to wear my “In Training” shirt! Kansas City Marathon, here I come! They got some crazy little women there and I’m gonna be one!)
