Yep, I have been missing lately.  Feeling run down and fatigued of late.  Still running 30+ miles a week and enjoying that.  There are just some things that get me down.

1.  My oldest brother has cancer.  I cannot even begin to tell you how much this sucks.  He has surgery scheduled for June.  It hurts to even write about it.  He is my hero!  Too much pain after losing my sister in '96 and Mom in '04.  Prayers are greatly appreciated.

2.  Mother's Day.  I miss my mom so much.  There is still a huge hole in my heart.  I really don't know how I would survive if I didn't know that I will see her again.

Overall, I feel crappy.  My head has ached for days.  I have a low grade fever that comes and goes.  I am giving it until next week--post Mother's day grief--to see if it is psychosomatic or there is something going on.  But no fever tonight so tomorrow is trackwork!  Running intervals takes focus.  Focusing on running means I cannot brood.  Running is my therapy! 

Pity party over.
