Stumble you might fall.

Two weeks. I began feeling ill Sunday night -- two weeks ago, Sunday night. Cold-like symptoms which were compounded by a day in a drafty rehearsal hall and several rainy days and nights. I thought I was pulling it together by the time the girl and I ran the 5K on Sunday, but on Monday I crashed again and spent Tuesday sick in bed.

The lawn grows so fast and I am a week behind, on everything. Yardwork, housework, house plans, it was all I could do to get to the office to participate in actor-teacher auditions.

And no running. Not even feeling like running. It's the best part of the year, and I'm just missing it.

Temperature: 64°
Distance: 4 miles
Weight: 174.5 lbs.

Moving forward. Best start to a three-day weekend - sleeping in (without getting a headache) making up for two weeks of illness without ever getting to sleep in.

Even better, 90 minutes of writing and thinking and writing. Yesterday I feared the new work, this morning I contributed to it. Big difference.

Then, a run. Perfect weather. When you push it out to four miles (via Cain Park) you get water.

Saw two child-sized hoodies, hung or draped over fire hydrants, as if and the walk home yesterday some kids deduced. “Hey! Wow! I’m never going to need this again!”
