    YOUR BIRTHDAY SUIT!! Oh wait…..you’ve done that……and the mud….

    moving on.
    there was a study last year in the NEJOM about colds and flu the best foods are chicken, apples, greens, and mucho broth, as well as, oddly, mussels (zinc)

    Hope he feels better, beautiful.

    Fun! You get to do all kinds of races…very cool.

    Sorry to hear Derek’s sick. Kale and soup and tea all work well, and I like to take Emergen-C twice a day too.

    Haha I love your disclaimer. Too funny. I actually LOVE doing birthday races and aim to find one on or around my birthday each year. This past November I did the Disney Wine & Dine half-marathon, which was few weeks before my birthday. I just signed up for my birthday race in 2013 – Run Rock ‘n’ Roll Strip at Night in Vegas! It’s the day before my birthday!

    Eat lots of spinach and broccoli!! I swear by it, I am a preschool teacher and so I am surrounded by tons and tons of germs and I hardly ever get sick, especially compared to all the other teachers. SO I definitely recommend these two, they are my staple to good health!

    I ran my first half marathon on my 27th birthday! I bought a child’s tiara that said HAPPY BIRTHDAY on it at a stationary store but almost no one wished my happy birthday and I felt really sad about it. I realized later that the tiara dipped back far on my head and was too hard to see! Before the race though, one girl told me it was her birthday too!

    I swear whenever I come down with something the first thing I do is buy the largest bag of spinach I can find and eat it raw with balsamic and evoo…and the next day I am cured! It sounds crazy but it’s true!

    No way!!! I have been eyeing the Dirty Girl race in San Francisco on March 2! I have never done a mud run, but after reading your post about doing one a while back, I researched a bunch in my area. I didn’t even realize it was the same one that you are an ambassador for! Trying to find a group to run it with me ๐Ÿ˜€

    lol well the obvious outfit choice is your birthday suit, but if you don’t want to go that far, perhaps a b-day tiara?

    Hope he feels better soon! Kale was probably a good choice–but how did he eat it plain? My husband HATES the stuff plain. Hah

    I have never done a birthday, but any race sounds fun to me. ๐Ÿ™‚ That would be a great run for me. I could bypass the water stuff and do everything else. I don’t swim. Once again, looks like a lot of fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My husband and I trade illnesses, although it’s usually that brings them into the house since I’m a teacher. Good job making him eat kale- I think sometimes getting sick is inevitable, but being smart about how you fight it can make a huge difference!

    I’m a big fan of birthday races ๐Ÿ™‚ I ran my first marathon on my 26th birthday! (Which you celebrated with me since you ran the pig too ๐Ÿ™‚ ) I vote for a birthday shirt and a tiara!

    This race sounds like a lot of fun! I’m a little sad I’m missing it, but my A-Race is the next morning (RnR St Pete) ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope Derek feels better soon! I know I’m fighting off something right now too. I’ve had the slightly sore throat all day.

    I’ve never done a birthday race, but I love the idea! My birthday for the last few years has been falling around the last day of classes, so racing isn’t my priority around then, haha
