So, I went to the emergency room ... I was having some very annoying continuing pains that turned out to be an infection, the result of strenuous exercise. A couple hours later after waiting around at the 4 or 5 stations you have to go through before you actually see a doctor, they gave me some antibiotics and told me to basically stop running and stay away from sunlight. In other words, "Brad, go back to being a bum all day." I swear, every time I try and get in shape something retarded happens .... last summer I went running through a field and got an allergy attack that prevented me from breathing... had to go to the ER for that too, and they diagnosed me with asthma and gave me an inhaler. Anyway, I'm glad it's only an infection ... I was fearing worse. I should be able to sleep easier now, knowing that I have drugs that'll eventually make the pain stop.
Mike, Nick --- it was a fun four days of running. After 10 days or so of taking these pills twice daily, maybe I can run again. You'll probably be good by then. *sigh*
Blythe --- sorry for not calling. I'll call you tomorrow.
