It finally happened. I endured my first cold since moving to D.C. last June and got myself better in about 5 days. Thank God! Here's what it took:
- Nasal Spray
- Kimchee Chee Gae
- a LOT of herbal tea
- the humidifier running at all times
- the heater on at a low setting
- a tissue box wherever I went
- sleeping in unapologetically

I feel tons better now! I also had horrible lower back pain and had to drop out of my ten mile race that's supposed to happen next weekend. This week totally took me out of my training plan, and I was already behind, so even though I'm super disappointed, I think it was a wise decision. My goal is to run 10 miles on my own this spring. :)

I'm glad I was able to take care of myself, despite all the whining I did to le boyfriend.

Next week my cousins come into town to see the beautiful cherry blossoms! YESSSSSS!!!
