Thanks, will do.  At least it should be overcast and the race starts 30 minutes before sunrise.

Where did all these germs come from...or were they always around and we're just noticing as race day approaches?

I'm recovering from my cold and hope that I caught it early enough so that it won't affect me on race day.

Stay healthy!

It's just a bad time of year. I took my babies to church for the first time today and this little boy had a nasty cough and seriously I am just hoping and praying we stay healthy all week. Isolation isn't always fun but better than having sick babies.

Looks like things are getting interesting for race day Wink  I am not so worried about the rain or snow, but the 15 mph wind may not be as fun...

 I don't know, but today an old co-worker stopped by the office shaking hands and hugging people. Right after me he announced that he was visiting on his way to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription for antibiotics. 

Much hand washing ensued......

I sure hope that Jordan, author of "Taper Question" on Running Forum for his first marathon, isn't freaking out by reading this 5 page thread.  Poor thing.
