Red Eagle Run

Sunshine and I were blessed to participate in the inaugural Red Eagle Run for Barry County Christian School.

Fabulous weather, sweet friends kind enough to slow down for slow 'ole me, and yummy pancakes afterward. The best part? Despite having difficulty breathing, which I'll explain in a minute, I accomplished my two fastest miles to date with the middle mile faster than the first...

In January I was hit hard with a very difficult viral infection. I could run but breathing was very difficult. It felt and sounded like asthma but the wheezing was coming from my throat (vocal cord area) as opposed to the bronchial area and it never responded to asthma treatment....my throat was tight and would only get tighter when trying to move around. 

When I ran on my birthday I ran in the cool morning air, which, along with a small virus, triggered a return of the same symptoms. The symptoms continued during Saturday's 5K.

I am now trying figure out all the triggers and how to handle them and give myself a few days rest...

Finished in 41:30-ish....

Romans 12:12
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
