I really meant to run today. I swear! Then I woke up with a nasty sore throat and sneezing and a runny nose. Seems like the only thing running around here is my nose (okay that's the last bad joke). I've read that you can usually run through a minor cold and be okay, but why? I feel crappy! Crappy enough to skip work. Normally I'm all about missing work, but I am so bored today. At least work provides something resembling a distraction.
Don't say I wasn't productive though. Here are a few links to nourish your minds:
Map my run - Some people love this site because it helps them decide where to run and how long that distance is.
100 Beginner Running Tips - I especially like number 25.
Active.com - Great place to search for local races.
Meetup.com - A great place to find groups of all interests, not just running.
