On the Fateful Night that I Lost My Cookies

On Saturday evening I was excited for The Night Race and all of its headlamp glory. I was pumped! I was ready! Ill-fitting shirt and all!

My dearest friend and I went on our merry way for a very fun night running through the river valley.  We laughed, we ran, walked a little, and  joked all the way to the finish line.

It wasn’t until I got home that I began to feel a little nauseous and assumed it was because I didn’t eat much before the race. I grabbed a granola bar and apple hitting the coach. I sat for only a second before my face went pale and I made a mad dash to the bathroom. It was on that  fateful night I hurled and wretched over the porcelain throne.

The next day my routine was thrown to a standstill and I spent most of the day in bed.

It was only this morning as I clicked on the Night Race Facebook page  and  I came across myself running over the finish line. I paused for a moment “Is that really me?” Night Race

Yes! Some runners have the look of fierce strength! Others the look of glee! And well mine was only a foretelling of what was to come that night.

The barf was already written on the wall!

All I know is after 24 hours and a solid recovery with warm fluids that I am back moving again. Next race I will be ready to smile pretty for the camera and hurling will not be an option.

  1. Your face in the photo is horribly wonderful. I’m impressed that you finished the race, and happy to read that the race did not finish you. Sorry you got sick, but think of the great story that came from this adventure.

  2. Congratulations on finishing the race… that is something to be proud of… I’ve been lacking with my exercise lately… it inspires me that you didn’t give up. I came over from Gail’s blog – Gails Forum 🙂

    1. Thank you for taking the time to visit 🙂 I said it over at Gail’s and I will say it here that my goal is strong over skinny. I have reached the point in my life where I just have to be happy being me 🙂
