I will not catch this cold. I will not catch this cold. I will not…

Jonathan has come down with a wickedly awful cold. We think he must have touched the wrong door handle at NYRR’s offices when he dashed in to get our bibs and chips on Saturday.

I’ve done more vigorous washing and disinfecting than Meryl Streep in “Silkwood,” but I nevertheless have that vaguely crappy “uh oh” feeling. Fortunately, I have several bottles of the mysterious Gan Mao Ling tablets my sister turned me on to.

Did I mention our entire neighborhood is now covered in a thick sheet of ice? I bought these, which get me down the steps to our ice mobile car without breaking my neck. But I don’t dare attempt to run outside.

This has been the Worst Winter Ever.

  1. Cyber hugs. Hope the cold holds off for you, and the weather gods send something good your way.

  2. If you can manage it, 10 hours of sleep per night and a large dose of NyQuil before sleeping work wonders for me.

    I’ve just started a daily regimen of vitamin C, so that I hopefully DO NOT get sick leading up to my trip to Austin for the marathon in 2 weeks.

    Yes, this winter is very, very miserable. Forecast for Sunday is low 40’s. Yay!

  3. Here’s wishing you a healthy pass on this cold. Make him sleep in the basement till he’s over it (sorry Jonathan). People swear by Zicam (basically zinc), you just have to make sure and take it at the beginning.

    Crampons…can’t stop thinking about ladies innards.

  4. I’ve loaded up on zinc, C and echinacea in addition to the foul-tasting Chinese pills. Not that I believe any of this shit works, but it can’t hurt.
