Weekend Update

I found out something this morning that was quite unusual. My allergies have been bothering me the past day or so with a lot of congestion giving me a sore throat. After a Google search for quick remedies, I found out that cayenne peppers are apparently good for sore throats, who would’ve guessed it? Needless to say, I tried adding some cayenne pepper along with honey in my tea, and sure enough 90% of the soreness went away. I would’ve had no idea that a hot pepper would have medical healing applications.

I also went out to buy Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon for my DS since I need some entertainment during my short downtime in this coming week, and was surprised to see an old friend of mine working at GameStop back from my old church; so we were able to catch up for a few minutes.

But keep me in your thoughts this coming week. I’m finally having my hardware in my shoulder removed this week, and I hope I have a somewhat quick recovery. I wanted to go ahead and get it done before all of the summer activities kick in so I’ll have some recoup time.

No More 10k

Well, I try to do something and it seems that something always gets the best of me. Unfortunately, my allergies had to intervene and threw my training schedule completely out of whack, so it looks like I won’t be able to compete in the 10k Vulcan Run this coming November.

I guess there’s always next year…

I feel like I’ve been rambling a lot lately, but oh well…

I’ve had really bad allergies for the past month and a half now, and they won’t seem to go away. And it’s just driving me absolutely crazy. At least today, I’ve been sneezing all day so I’ve had to had a tissue, napkin, or something handy to sneeze into. Nothing I take seems to help (aside from an allergy shot that helped for a few days) so I think I’m going to go back to the doctor — again if things don’t improve pretty soon.
