Flu, Flu Go Away


May 10, 2012 by CJ

Dear Flu,

It’s time for you to go.  You crept up on me sometime this past Saturday.  You invaded me while my guard was down.  I thought all the sneezing was because of allergies.  But by Sunday morning, I knew it was more than that.  You’ve made my eyes hurt, throat raw, body ache and  head pound.  I spent Sunday freezing and sweating at the same time. Does that even sound right?  Why would you do that to

someone?   Because of you, I had to leave my daughter’s track meet early and miss a day of work.  I’m fearful I may not run the Preakness 5k this Saturday and my husband had to do laundry.  That may not sound like a big deal to you, but I’ll be honest, I’m afraid to look in my laundry room.  There’s no telling what he did in there.

It’s Thursday and I am still feeling run-down and beat up.  Isn’t this enough?  Isn’t it time for you to move on and harass some other person?  I’m supposed to run 10 miles in a few weeks and I need to get back to training.  Not taking my morning run is leaving me in a daily bad mood.  Who knew I needed the 5am run so much?  Please leave.  Take your nasty, hacking cough, endless runny nose, and aching head with you.  All I ask in return is that you leave me my energy, my strength, my umph I need to get up and run again.
