I woke up with a sore throat. This does not surprise me since many of my KU students have been sneezing and gagging in class and, this weekend was the state cross country meet. I have to brag and say the Baldwin High School girls team won state for the fifth year in a row. My son Tosh medaled, a week after finishing second at the 4A Regionals: http://signal.baldwincity.com/news/2011/oct/27/bulldogs-run-well-class-4a-regional/
Anyway, the cross country celebrations included a late night party and bonfire on Saturday, then the boys' team spent the night at our house. I ran ten miles after the guys left and probably went too far on too little sleep. Am a bit pooped and my throat feels it.
Breakfast today was two glasses of water. Normally I'd have half-caff coffee and some tea. My throat wanted water. Then I had a banana smeared with "all natural" peanut butter. I don't like the unprocessed kind, however. As you may have noticed, the cost of peanut butter has risen dramatically because of the poor peanut harvest, so we are exploring the other nut butters.
