Am I Faster When I'm Sick?

I'm sick guys. My cough has gotten worse and now my throat hurts and I'm freezing 😩.  I have a busy week at work and an even busier week outside of work, so I hope the DayQuil & NyQuil and Halls cough drops I'm taking will start to kick in soon. Surprisingly, even though I feel like crap, I was all smiles after my run today...

because I was able to do this....

As I started out on the run I glanced at my watch and saw a 9:20 min pace, so I got super excited! Then I noticed that the pace was slowly started to creep up. When I looked at my watch again the pace was 9:58 and so I tried to run as fast as I could to keep the pace under 10 minutes 😊. It really took everything out of me, but I'm excited that I was able to pull it off, especially considering how sick I feel. 

Tomorrow is International Women's Day!!!
So tomorrow I'll be wearing purple to work (which, to be fair, is probably not that much of a deviation from my normal attire) and I'm doing a group run with some of ladies from the running group. The theme for this year is: Be Bold For Change. There are so many things that need to be changed about how women are treated. And as a women who is raising a daughter, it is important for me to take a stand against inequality and injustice, and to teach her how to take a stand for what she believes in as well. Tomorrow, and everyday, I will (and I'll teach my daughter to) #BeBoldForChange.

How was your Tuesday?

Do you run/workout when you're sick or is that an automatic rest day?

Do you have any plans for International Women's Day? What change(s) will you be bold for?


Thanks for your comment!
