What was a minor cold is now a raging sinus infection. I'm bone-tired from a) being sick and b) not being able to sleep because I can't breathe. Breathing is so much effort. I'm tired from breathing. My chest hurts from blowing my nose. I've done so many saline sinus rinses, there's water in my ears. Big yellow globs are coming out of my nose. I have zero energy and a low-grade fever. I can't taste or smell or even hear very well. Eating is a chore. I've lost 6 lbs. I'm completely miserable. There is nothing in my life right now that gives me pleasure. Including breathing out of my nose. So much for the marathon on Sunday. That I did all the training for. All of it. Except for Canada, that was my only other big race this year. Down the toilet.
