Well, the sickies continued in the trailmomma household. Late Saturday night Vans started his round of the pukies. Granted, I never officially did the deed but I was nauseous enough to feel just as bad as he did. Apparently you don't feel better after . . . good to know.
Since Vans was unable to run the Folsom Lake Trail Runner's Winter race out at Folsom Point on Sunday, I took his place. It was only 3.5 miles or so and my Garmin died at the start which made it easier to run nice and slow. Actually, I ran and talked with my good friend Scrapbook the whole way. It was fun but I noticed I was/am still low in energy.
Not only am I down in energy, I am down almost four pounds since Friday. Mostly water weight I am sure. Not a diet I recommend though and I am trying my hardest to get some much needed fuel into this body. To be honest, the four lost pounds are probably because wine sounds so unappealing lately which is my usual Saturday night ritual. Wine + sushi + couch = bliss after a Saturday run.
I have been drinking lots of water and electrolyte like beverages to replenish and feel a bit better today which is good because rumor has it that our group is headed to Pennsylvania Avenue again this week. Eeek.
The good news is the Peanut is definitely feeling better and running her sick parents ragged.

On non running note, I want to send some love to the heavens. Particularly to my mom who passed 16 years ago today. She never got to meet the Peanut but I know she is keeping a close eye on all of us.

Miss ya mom!!


  1. What a sweet picture of your mom. I'm sure she is watching over you guys too. Glad you are on the mend and hope Vans gets there soon too.

  2. Oh Pam- I had no idea it was the anniversary of your mom's passing. I am so sorry for your loss. The picture is great. Thanks so much for sharing. I love your blog and it was GREAT running with you on Sunday. Even though in your sick state I had trouble keeping up with you. Get better soon and happy training.

  3. Why you make me cry like that?! :(

  4. Sorry about the sickies and your mom. Glad the Peanut is better and soon you will be too :)

  5. Pam, I'm so sorry about your mom; I lost mine when I was 16. Moms are so special! You are doing her proud with your Peanut :)
