Well, some bad news.  Today it was determined that our youngest daughter has the H1N1 flu.  Now, we're all on tamiflu.  I also made the decision to pull the plug on running Twin Cities.  I was suppose to leave tomorrow, but under the circumstances that just wouldn't be smart.  I pray it stays under control here.  I know you hear reports that it's no big deal, but then there's stories of some fatalities.  My mind simply wouldn't be in the race and I know full well that marathons are attention hogs.

I guess it's back to building a better running schedule.  Ran 4 miles in the rain and cold today.

Wise're right, things should be fine, yet it'd be impossible to run with this situation over your head. I'll keep your family in prayer. There will be other races.

Sorry to hear about your daughter, hope that your family stays well. Sorry about the race, but it is the wise decision. I too will have all of you in my prayers.

Thank you very much. It was a long night last night. Her fever kept spiking, but didn't hang around for a long time. Her lungs and breathing sound terrible though. Not much sleep as you can imagine.
