After getting back from Pittsburgh Tuesday, I decided to run around Draper lake. I've done it before, but it's been awhile, and I was refreshing my memory for the upcoming Beacon on the Bay 25k. I like Draper because there are very few people running there. The downside is that there is some traffic all the way around. Anyway I did an easy 14 miles around the lake. Then on Thursday, I felt a little ill. I had a meeting to go to, but felt like I would be ok. I travelled to the meeting, and got very ill in the meeting and had to leave. I went home, got in bed and stayed there to the next morning. That morning I had to meet with someone early, so I went, then went on to work. I felt better as the day went on, but spent a lot of time in my "other office." I was torn on whether to try and run the race, but with my 50 mile attempt coming up in a couple of weeks, I decided to skip the 25k. Saturday morning I felt fairly good, but decided to stick with my decision not to run. I got up, went to the lake and picked up my packet and then went back home. I would have volunteered, but decided that I didn't need to be out in the cold that long. Tomorrow, I travel to San Francisco. I am going to try and find some trails to run tomorrow.
To those of you that did run the 25k Great Job by you all.
