psyched marathon

UGH. I am so bummed.  Despite getting a flu shot less than a month ago, somehow I am coming down with (apparently a different strain of) the flu.

Having recently watched Contagion, I feel acutely aware of the transmission of disease, and how I probably caught it (hard not to blame a fellow passenger on Muni).  Which doesn't help -- every singe neck pain is now my brain shutting down, every cold sweat is my last one.

So I'm off to feed my cold/starve this fever.  Wish me luck!  And have a great weekend.
