Flu, Flu Go Away

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. 

Sincerely,

Another flu victim
