Our construction field inspector at work had to have hernia surgery.  That means I have to do his work while he's away.  I put 57 hours in at work last week.  Everyday I'd say to myself, "I need to go running when I get home.  It's a beautiful day, and I feel great!"  Then a couple of hours later I'd say, "Ow.  My legs hurt.  I've been walking all day.  And these 10 hour days are killing me!"  So, I didn't run for a few days.  

Today there were no excuses.  I had to get out.  It was 39° out.  That shoulda been an excuse, but then I remembered everybody else in the world.  So I ran, and I felt great.

It was 42° out, so I decided it would be okay to go with shorts and a short sleeved T.  I haven't run over 5 miles in forever.  In fact, it's been since Vegas Ragnar.  But I survived.  When I got home dinner was ready.  I decided to eat before I showered.  But I didn't have much of an appetite.  After nibbling on my chicken sandwich for a bit I got up to take a shower.  Then I started shaking uncontrollably.  I was soooo cold.
