Know When to Fold ‘Em

Like most runners I try not to let small things keep me from running.  This usually means I’ll run with a small cold, sore throat or other minor health issue.  But last week I got hit with some sort of respiratory infection that sidelined me all week.  I was coughing up a lung just walking through the house and my throat and lungs felt raw.  So, as much as I wanted to get out I knew this was a case where being smart would get me back out sooner.  If I tried to run through that I would have been in much worse shape and probably missed several weeks. 

Today I feel almost back to normal so tomorrow morning I’ll hit the streets (now that it’s back to only a “small” sore throat).
