I've got a fever and the only prescription is more donations

Another great day to donate! Two marathons and two charities! Let's raise a combined $6,500 for cancer research through Fred's Team and low-income seniors with Housing Opportunities and Maintenance for the Elderly (H.O.M.E.)!

Donate to H.O.M.E. here (write in "marathon" in note section). Donate to Fred's Team here

The best days are when you don't have to do the work yourself! Check out this great post from HOME's blog. When you support HOME your dollars are doing real good for real people!

Sunday afternoon I came down with something. I was sitting in the choir room, rehearsing with the most talented future MET singers and I started missing notes. Just kidding. I always miss notes! Or as I like to say, I "interpret" the music. Anyway, I started to feel really weak and tired and all-around horrible.

I slogged to work for a few minutes and then gave up. By the time I stumbled off the bus I was done. I climbed into bed at 7pm. Sometime later I decided I needed tylenol and water. I removed the blanket from my roasting legs and immediately froze.  I took a few minutes to warm up again and then steel my will to walk down the hall. All this because of three lousy degrees. 

I run at 97.0 degrees (F). I know this as I've had it checked a lot. And last night I was brought to ruin by a temperature of an even 100. Fast-forward 12 hours, a few more doses of tylenol, and other things not mentionable here and it was morning. I made it into work for my meeting - and slogged through a bit of actual work before leaving early. I spent all afternoon on the couch. I'm still tired.

One thing will pick me up! You can donate to HOME or Fred's Team today! You really should. I don't want to be sick this week. I need to catch a few more runs before the NYC marathon.
