I injured my back at work two weeks ago and was finally able to go to the doctor for it yesterday which means I am flat out, literally, until at least Monday. Because I travel so much for work I do a lot of driving which is really aggravating the snot out of it. I've spent most nights for the last two weeks laying on the floor of my living room on top of three ice packs with a bottle of Advil and a gallon of water while the bun tries to launch herself off my face in glee because she is downright giddy when I'm at her level.

The good news is I have an awesome nurse although she refuses to refill my Nalgene bottle or get me another Kind bar. Something about the lack of opposable* thumbs?
So should you need me I will be right where I am now, watching Netflix until my eyes cross (I just watched Spirit of the Marathon again and it was just as amazing as the first five times and I cried just the same at the end), looking up races I might want to run in the next 10 years, creating dream shopping carts at Sephora and Amazon and writing up my Boilermaker recap. Yes, I finished it. Yes, my back hurt pretty darn bad afterwards. Yes, I delayed going to the doctor because I didn't want him to tell me I shouldn't run the race. And yes, my Mizunos are officially on my most hated list right before being in crowds of people and after broccoli.
To end this on a happy note, guess what I FINALLY got to do when I was in Philly?
That's right. I went to Pat's, the original cheesesteak place. For you non-North easterners cheesesteaks are made with Cheese Whiz and steak that I am not sure actually came from a real cow but damn they are DELICIOUS. To order one without onions you roll up the the counter with your $9.50, order a "Whiz wit out!" in a confident voice and are then presented with 6 inches of heaven (that sounds awful...so I'm leaving it). It was seriously one of the greatest moments of my life although I made my friend who lives there order it, he's not a chicken like I am. I'm from NY and we will most likely cut you if you are from any other state and act like you know what good pizza is so I didn't want to risk it (Chicago included in that statement, I don't know what that mess was that I was presented with when I was there a couple of years ago but a slice was an inch thick, nowhere near the size of my head and I couldn't roll it up to shove it in my mouth which is pizza FAIL).
*The spell check in blogger does not include the word "opposable". Clearly they are forgetting to show respect to their evolutionary roots.
