Spring Fever

10:00 AM - Westboro - 9 miles, 1:05:00.

Despite the smattering of snow and rain we received last night into the wee hours of this morning, it actually felt somewhat spring-like when I hit the roads of Westboro at the luxuriously late hour of 10 AM. For the first time in about a week my energy levels were good and my attitude optimistic again. Maybe it was the sunshine, maybe not, but it's hard to be happy when you sweat as you sleep, your entire body aches and your head feels like it's going to explode through your eye sockets. Of course, I'm still coughing like a chronic smoker but I'm not sweating through t-shirts and my mucus output has been outstanding the last two days, which I'm taking as sure signs that my body is finally ridding itself of the dreaded disease that's taken up temporary residence inside my respiratory system.

So to sum it all up, today brought about the return of fresh air, good energy, smiles, sunshine and clear snot. Spring is right around the corner!

I think that you should steal Keith's motif, but instead of talking about keeping the energy postive, you should talk about keeping the snot clear. Introduce a new euphemism for something that is good and pure. Keep the snot clear, my good man!

ya know, both Drisc and I had the same thing, but we kicked it about a week sooner then you...It makes you wonder if it's gotta be something in this Blue Ridge Mountain air...NOT that I'm questioning the quality of that fine Worcester air your breathing, but you have to wonder... ;)

...glad you are feeling better!!
