Goofy Challenge this Weekend!

Why is it that time off from work seems to go by so fast? Maybe it is because it doesn't feel like I had much time away since so much of our time was spent running around for the holidays and sick! Yes, I'm still battling this never-ending cold. With only 3 days until I leave for Disney and 4 days until round 1 of the Goofy Challenge I'm hoping for a cold killing miracle. Though I am a lot better than this time last week when I couldn't even walk down the hallway without being exhausted for the next couple of hours. Before New Year's Eve I tried to run 3 miles and it felt okay during the run, a little out of it for taking so much time off, but then I was literally knocked out for 2+ days after the run. Yesterday I was able to run a very easy 4 miles outside and not be out of it for too long afterwards.

I've always said this challenge was to raise money for cancer research and have fun. I'm hoping this cold goes away enough so I'm not miserable or so tired I can't finish what I started out to do! I'll be getting as much sleep as I can the remainder of the week and continuing to eat healthy. I'm traveling for work later today and I'm crossing my fingers and toes the cold doesn't worsen because of the travel and stress of the job!
