3 things Thursday

1. My wife and I have the flu. It came out of nowhere Monday night, but I guess that's how the flu starts. Needless to say, it'll make me even more unprepared for the Disney Marathon in a few weeks. 2. After reading so many wish-lists this year and posts with top gifts for runners, I opted not to make a list this year. While I'd love a new pair of shorts or another pair of Injinji socks, it's not a big "need" right now. I'm grateful for gifts in the past couple of years that have left me well-stocked.

3. There's an odd thing that happens with getting really sick ... I feel ready to clean everything I own, throw out things I don't use and use this as an opportunity to focus on nutrition. I just need another day or two of doing nothing though.
