You know what is better than Tylenol Sinus?

Riding in the aero position for 40+ miles!

Mr KT and I took a nice long, easy ride on Labor Day. We left about 10 am and averaged just under 17 mph or so. Pretty flat for the first 23 miles a few rolling hills in the middle and then flat again for the last 7 miles.

I had to stop midway and blow my nose. I was so excited. You know how colds are broken down into stages? The first 3 days or so it is building, you have a mildly sore throat with a headache. The middle three days you are so congested you think that your sinuses will implode inside your head. The last three days or so you are a true joy to be with. A deep hacking cough, a tissue box at your side, your body producing so much junk that you wish you could market it's efficiency for you would make a quick million. Well, I for some reason was having trouble fully reaching stage three. No matter what I did, or took, I would go to bed with a full head and it would shift itself further backwards during the night. I would go to the pool and each flip turn would make me dizzy as stuff moved around. Well, all it took was to be horizontal, looking at the ground for 2.5 hours and everything changed. Coincidence? Who cares. I finally feel better and can sleep with my mouth shut! Yes! I went for a 5 mile run yesterday just to celebrate.

I hate colds. I would rather get poked in the eye with a sharp stick. I am glad you are over that. Your comment on my blog about the little kid whose heart was beeping too fast made me spit soda out my nose. Nice one.
