I can't believe how much you do all while dealing with everything Lyme related. I want to try and do something, but it is taking a lot out of me to even go for a walk right now. I'm impressed with how you're handling everything. On a side note, that's sooooo cute and wonderful about your daughter winning her first race! Wow! I was actually inspired to do triathlons when a close 6 year old to me did her first and came in dead last with a smile ear to ear. So freakin' inspiring :-)

Sarah,
Thanks! You know... as great as it is that I can do what I do, it's equally as confusing.

Yesterday I got up at 6:30am, biked for an hour with a friend, worked at the running store for 4 hours, came home and did freelance work and then ran 6 miles with my 1/2 marathon training group.

Today I feel a little more tired and foggy than usual, but it feels like a "normal" tired/foggy. At least in comparison to how tired I usually feel (which is like I pulled an all-nighter).

I know of only one other Lyme sufferer — a cyclist — who can even come close to this (not that it's a competition or anything). It would be fine if I had built up to doing this level of activity, but the reality is that I've been in this place for about a year without an improvement.

Because of this, I sometimes I really wonder if I'm not barking up the wrong tree with Lyme. I don't doubt that it's an issue for me, but I sometimes have a hard time believing that it's THE issue.

Regardless of my issues... you'll get there with your exercise. I know I owe you some training tips. I'll get to it soon. I've been overloaded with work stuff this week.

Best!
