Ship’s Log–October 7th


Who would have thought that gargling beer would be so effective? This morning, the sore throat was just about gone. I’m still feeling drained and coughing a bit, but the throat was the biggest concern. Life is so much more comfortable when every swallow doesn’t hurt.

I probably shouldn’t have celebrated by pushing myself to run a full 5 miles today, but I’m nothing if not too stupid to rest when I’m feeling ill.
