The end of the season

I can't even believe it, but cross country is just about over for the year. It's a short season and the charter school league? is small, so regionals were last week and state is this week.

Sadly, Runner Girl woke up Thursday morning with a bad sore throat and said, "Mom, I think I have strep ..." She's had it before, so off to the doctor we went for confirmation and a prescription. Yes indeed, she had strep. We couldn't go to regionals, which was supposed to be her last race. We were both majorly bummed. We will continue training at least on the weekends once she has her orthotics to help prevent further injury.

We are still working on ironing out the best time/routine for me to hit the gym every day, and since the gym here has limited hours, it's going to be either really early or ... not at all. sad. hoping i get there today sometime!

Pei pa koa is pretty decent cough medicine (from herbal as I remembered), great non alcoholic medicine, some western cough medicine are more effective, but this is non drowsy.
