In 2008 I got sick during my taper for the Milwaukee Marathon. On race day I qualified for the Boston Marathon.
Today I am 10 days out from Ironman Wisconsin and I woke up with a throat so sore I could hardly swallow. I stayed home from work and went to the doctor as a precaution. My Dr. put me on a Z-pack to kick all of this crud out of my system. The good news…I should be immune to any bacteria I may be swimming with in Lake Monona. If history repeats itself, I should have a great race in 10 short days!!
