Potential Pitfalls

With my trip to CHICAGO less than 3 days away I am a nervous wreck. I have always been a bit of a hypochondriac, but lately every little thing puts me on edge. Why are my ankles so stiff? What was that twinge in my calf? Is that a bruise on my foot. I am on constant ALERT for a nonexistent ailment. You know that the roommate is loving my whining…NOT!

However, I do have a real reason to be concerned. Being the brainiac that I am, I decided on a whim to donate blood last Wednesday. Yes, I did save three lives (that means good karma points, right???), but was that the smartest decision? NO! Red blood cells are essential for transporting oxygen, something that if I am not mistaken will be kind of important while traveling 26.2 miles. So, there is that to worry about.

I’m being extra certain to take my vitamins, and an additional iron supplement. Keep your fingers crossed that I have super fast red blood cell makers!
