I am not well

Alternate title: It sucks getting old

It's been seeming like my roughly once per year sickness hits harder every year which is either a factor of getting old or having kids or both. Well this seems to be further proof. By Sunday night after dinner, all I wanted to do was go to bed and I could already tell that work was doubtful for yesterday. From watching my dad growing up, I learned that sick days just don't exist unless you have a limb hanging off (and that's debateable) or you have been restrained by the doctors so you know it was bad. Yesterday morning I just couldn't physically get out of bed. I slept for about 11 hours and then spent the whole day just doing basically nothing because it was about all I could muster to even be out of bed doing nothing. I got to bed early and decided to wait until this morning to decide on coming in today. When the alarm went off I at least felt like I was functional enough to drive myself to work and speak coherently so here I am. Unfortunately, it's sort of spiraling at this point... the weekend of racing should have left me in desparate need of food and water, but my terrible sore throat is making eating and drinking difficult so now I'm becoming weak and dehydrated. I took some more drugs to take the edge off and I'm now forcing myself to eat and drink. Sadly, I think what this means is that I'll be taking this coming weekend off from racing and catching up on everything I'm not doing right now.

Anywho... all this sitting around writing my sob story is wrinkling my skirt so I'll stop now. Besides, it could be worse... at least I don't have a horribly painful affliction of the ass. Sorry man that you're pain is my bright side...

Being sick sucks, but I hope you'll be glad to know that my ass wound is 95% healed and I'll be venturing out on the bike any day now. Been running, but today had a different kind of ass woe, the kind that makes you run for the woods, like, now. Might be from outdated Power Gel... It was bad, so bad that even I won't blog about it...

Hope you feel better. Canton for you?

Good to hear you're coming along Solo. There's lots of cross left... hope to see you out there. The Shift boys have been everywhere!

I was going to race Southington or whatever this Sunday is, but I think I'm bagging this weekend. Hoping to go Saturday and Sunday next weekend and/or double-up at Canton.

If you come to Brockton, bring some parsley, a can of Black Flag, and a pack of EZ Widers and I'll show you how to make a quick couple of hundred bucks...
