80 miles for the week on 8 runs.

For the most part it was a bad week.  I had developed some strange breathing problem a couple weeks ago that came and went. I won't get too deep into it but it came back on Sunday and I've had it all week. I'm on 4 prescriptions now. I spent the night in the ER on Monday night and had a doctor's visit on Wednesday. I'm not sure what exactly this will mean going forward but I'm struggling a bit with sleeping and of course running at full lung capacity.  I have a meeting with a specialist coming up.  So we'll see.  Got sick at the end of the week...something coming on.  Still managed to get my 80 in but it was a struggle.

In other sad news, my grandfather passed on Thursday night.  He was going to be 99 this summer.  I'm now out of grandparents officially.   He lived a long, happy life and was a great man.  They don't make men like that any more..  I'm just glad my girls got to meet him.
