feed a cold, starve a runner

Man, I hate being sick. Yesterday I felt a little stuffy, not bad enough to take the day off by any stretch, so I ran 8 miles over lunch. I heard somewhere that it's OK to run easy if you have a head cold. As soon as you're coughing or have a sore throat, you're supposed to rest. Makes sense, but I have no idea if it's true.

Well, today I woke up with the worst sore throat ever! The old adage about running with a head cold is a falsehood. Curse you, evil old wives tale!

In other random news, this is now my favorite thing to listen to before a run. Mastodon rocks so hard.
