Ugh...

(I am so depressed and discouraged! Really I was wildly overoptimistic this morning, I have a real cold that is progressing through the typical stages, I'm at least as sick now as I was yesterday. I guess there is a small chance I will wake up tomorrow feeling great, but it seems wildly unlikely, and with my infuriating history of bronchial ailments it will be extremely stupid of me to do an endurance event when I already have lung vulnerability. I have to keep the longer view - it will do me no good if I race at Harriman on Saturday and then have to sit out three weeks of training with bronchitis. Seems to me nearly certain that I shouldn't do it. Ugh, ugh, ugh....)

On the other hand . . . if there is anything I can do to make your upcoming stay and IM CDA event logistically easier just let me know.

Oh, so sorry to hear it. Keep in mind the big picture (assuming IM CDA is the big picture) and skip this one if you must.

You didn't want to swim in that 'marginal' water anyway. IM CDA is the bigger goal so you are doing the right thing! Feel better really soon!
