I decided Sunday night not to run the Celebrate America 10K in Alpharetta because I felt that I was coming down with a mild cold, presumably from the kids. Plus, I feel like someone punched me in my left eye. It is swollen up and seems to be a stye infection coming up. All that said, I decided not to run Monday and tax my body in a race before this coming weekend's triathlon.
I have been keeping keeping up my normal training routine and am getting ready to head down to the beach Thursday evening to get settled in, preview the race course and relax a little before the Grandman on Saturday. I spoke with my friend who ran the Celebrate America 10K, and he said it was a good race with really good support volunteers.
