Update!

Well, I still have a slightly dire cold, but exercise is in any case contraindicated - because we are about to be hit by Hurricane Paloma...

No swimming in the sea!

And I will have to wait and see, based on illness and power/hurricane situation, what I can do about the 10-12 mile run that is my weekend marathon training obligation. It will probably just have to be skipped - if things are more or less back to normal by Sunday morning, I could probably just do a short one outside in the am, my cold will hopefully be mostly better by then, or gut it out on the treadmill if the gym reopens...

My flight back to NY is late Sunday afternoon, and I am hoping that transportation will be back on schedule by then. In the meantime I have attended my first hurricane preparedness meeting, where I gathered authenticating details for future thriller-writing purposes...

When I lived in the DR, the Peace Corps used to evacuate us from our sites a couple times each hurricane season. It was always a little fun, but I can say that because none of them ever hit!

Bummer about the swim! Stay safe and hope you feel better soon. The added rest will probably help, esp. with the marathon coming up fast.

It seems like a storm hits every time you're down there. Hmm... :) Glad you're feeling better.
