MOON: Sorry about being late – just got hit with a bad cold/flu. It’s still in the beautiful morphing stages so we’ll see what it turns into. :/ It’s really bumming my running schedule out today. How are you?
JENN: Bleh. I hate when being sick messes with your running schedule! I find that working out can help when you feel like you have a bit of a cold, but anything more extreme and you’re outta commission. I think the rule is above the chest symptoms = go ahead and run, chest symptoms = DO NOT RUN? Never mess with your lungs.
MOON: I can be down with that. And if you can’t stand… Don’t run. This is the rule I am following today! Yesterday I went for it and I felt EHHH, but today it’s not happening.
JENN: HA. I should say so! How was running last week, then? Can you console yourself with former glories?
MOON: Ha, indeed! The last 4-5 weeks have been amazing, actually. And Monday I had a breezy 7 mile run, so at least I ended on a good note. How was your week?
JENN: Pretty good! I actually made it to 30 miles, which is my unofficial goal marker. My official goal marker is 25+ – I’m trying to be a little less hard on myself if I’m busy. I mean, God forbid I only run 20 miles one week, right?
MOON: Ha, yeah, shame on you! Thirty is great! And if you ever feel bad about 20: remember! We are spoiled with treadmills. Imagine 20 miles outside.
JENN: Haha, yeah. At least it’s not consecutive! Did you have a good Valentine’s Day weekend, anyway?
MOON: Yes! We actually went for a run together on Valentine’s Day.
JENN: Awww, nice!
MOON: How was yours?!
JENN: Good! Quiet. We made food (well, he made food; I made cupcakes) and watched The Prestige. I’m glad we decided to stay in; there was snow that night and it looked rather questionable out there.

MOON: We had just made it to our destination and then the “thundersnow” came. This is off-topic, but I won’t be able to continue thinking about running until I get this out there: I hate sensational weather jargon.
JENN: Haha, I hadn’t heard the thundersnow thing. Sounds like a name a seven-year-old would give a pony.
MOON: I almost didn’t believe it until I saw it on an official weather warning for the area.
JENN: More things to hardly believe: roundup!
