Nobody likes a Mr. Sniffles

As my good friend Kate Hudson says, “nobody likes a Mr. Sniffles!

(Okay.. maybe she’s just my good friend in mind. Keep dreaming, dreamer.)

Anyway, all weekend, Lisa-Marie and I were Ms. Sniffles. We couldn’t figure out if it was a bug or allergies, but we were poppin Halls left and right.

our Sunday-Funday beach setup: Halls, Vicks tissues, iced coffee, breakfast sandwiches

Has anybody else experienced the wonder that is Puffs with Vicks? Holy geez.

That’s what you do when you have an awesome Vicks tissue. You stick it in, enjoy its goodness, and, HEY! when you sneeze, it’s so convenient!

sickies on the beach

All this sickness is making me a little worried for my Williamsburg Run for the Dream Half Marathon on May 22. I was planning on running this for my final PR before starting to train for the Marine Corps Marathon on October 30, 2011, but with the way my shin’s been hating on me plus my sickness plus some unforeseen family issues lately, it looks like this may be the least prepared I’ve ever been for a half marathon. Waaah.

My last run was on Friday with Jamie.. we were troopers with my oncoming sickness and her sore leggies, but we had to get in one more run before she moved (Jamie just moved to the oceanfront, so she’s now about 15 minutes away instead of 2.4 miles away). Laaaaame.

Anyway, we felt the (strange) need to capture our last ceremonious Friday Fun-Run run togeths.


there it is.. our sacred meeting place!

we run through the jungle. normal.

and then we played for a little bit.

“does this count as my weight training for the day?”

To wrap up the weekend, LisaRee and I had the Sunday Funday of a lifetime. Our fun weekend included some 80s music, dancing, shopping, a photo shoot, a movie (Water for Elephants! Uh, the book is SO much better), and a day on the beach with lots of halls, tissues, and wine. And maybe some margaritas at the end.

blueberry mojito!

Today was spent buying myself a neti pot after work.

I don’t want to talk about it.

I’m off to blow my nose for the 2939183th time today. I need more Vicks tissues.

  20. oh girl, I’m in the same allergy boat (only, minus the fun beach-trip, so be thankful for that at least!) I love the gorgeous weather, just wish I could enjoy it without my nose running like a faucet and constant pressure in my sinuses! Ugh!

  21. Iā€™m still studying from you, while Iā€™m trying to reach my goals. I genuinely love reading all that is written on your blog. Keep the stories coming. I loved it!

  22. I’m guilty of sticking tissues in my nose and leaving them there. Usually it starts as me trying to be a smartass.. and then ends as a functional plug =) bahaha! the title of this cracked me up! MUST watch this movie again!

  23. My nose is all raw! I ran out of the Halls tissues this morning. NOOOOOO! But I love that we are now getting each other sick…means we’re spending too much time together. šŸ˜‰ XOXOXO!
