It seems I have Fifth’s disease. That explains how I have been feeling. It also explains the red face the three year-old was sent home with. We assumed it was heat rash or sunburn. It has been going around the neighborhood and I have been around plenty of people who have had it. The unfortunate thing, you don’t really know you have it until you break out with a rash. By the time you have a rash, you are no longer contagious. I broke out in a rash on legs this weekend. I chalked it up to the heat and the fact I was working in the yard. I atrributed my achy body as a sign I was perhaps over doing my runs.
I am feeling about 50% better today. Let’s hope I am back to 100% by Saturday’s Soldier Field 10 Miler. At least I am not contagious. Well, not anymore anyway.
