What an appalling question.
It should never arise. It should never be an issue. Except…
I’ve been sick. A very contagious blurg has been decimating the school. Students. Teachers. Aides. Everybody. Last week I broke down and went to the walk-in clinic where the lovely nurse practitioner wrote me a scrip for antibiotics.
It’s nice to not hurt when I breathe. It’s nice to be horizontal when I’m sleeping.
But now it’s been a week since I tied on the old sneakers, and I’m healthy enough to start twitching. But am I healthy enough to run? There may still be a little rattle in my chest when I cough. And, ok, I am still coughing a little. But seriously…
If my favourite doc happens to be reading this, I’d accept some free medical advice. I even usually follow it. grin.
Oddly enough, I don’t want to post a picture of me in my jammies with a red nose and crazy hair. So here’s what it might look like if I had gone for a run after school today.
So back to where we began… To run or not to run. Polls close at midnight on this important issue. Let your voice be heard.
