Absolutely beautiful morning today. Sun is shinning. Although the humidity is high, it wasn't as stifling as it has been. My run felt really good.
The fall pollen is starting to come out so I'll need to start making plans to stay one step ahead of it. If I can keep the sinuses clear and not let anything get into my lungs, I should be able to stay healthy. This time last year, I thought I was beating the asthma and got slammed by bronchitis and then I was back at square one on the asthma problems.
On a happy note - my parents have accepted my invitation to come down to Florida for Thanksgiving and stay thru the weekend so they can watch my first half marathon. They have never seen me race.
