st. george marathon + a warning to my peeps


i have returned from the valley of the shadow of death.

i spent the weekend in st. george with some friends who ran the marathon. no, i didn't run it. instead i made merry with friends who i can just be myself around. it was joyous and relaxing.

on the return trip i got a little sick. then sicker. i got home just in time because, well, let me tell you.

i have spent the last 24 hours shaking and sweating and reacquainting myself with the toilet on a face-to-face level if you know what i mean. i told mr. coleman i was dying.

i lost 7 pounds. which i could have done if i'd run the marathon. so, i'm glad i didn't and i'm glad i've lived to tell. i am feeling much better today except the weird newborn-giraffe-like legs.

a huge apology to all my peeps if i spread my germs to you. prepare for the worst.

photo swiped from flikr since i apparently had too much fun to take a single picture of st. george


  1. AH! Stomach flu is the WORST! And I catch it like it's my job. If there is anyone in the vicinity carrying it, I will get it. Seriously, it's awful. And every time I get it I think I'm going to die.

    Glad you lived!

  2. I'm sorry you were/kind of are still sick. That's not fun at all! I'm glad you had fun in St. George, though.

  3. Ugh. I'm sorry you got so sick. At least you made it home with marginal success. It seems as though you did run the marathon. Didn't you say you always got sick w/in 2 weeks of running? Maybe this isn't contagious but just sympathy for the runners.

  4. Rachel, I am so sorry you are sick. I am glad your not dead because who would entertain us with such clever writing? I have never seen a baby giraffe. I am curious as to what those legs look like. Love you lady. Get better fast.

  5. OH man, that sucks. Hope you get better quick. On the bright side, all your kiddies are in school so you can take mornings off :)

  6. I'm so glad you are alive and weren't really dying. But so sorry you had to endure that. Hope you are all better tomorrow.

  7. Oi Vay. Did you imagine that as a New York Jewish mother? I hope so.
    If I find myself running to the bathroom, I'll know who to blame.
    Sorry you got so sick but it was wonderful spending time with you!

  8. sorry you've been sick. hope you're all better by now.
