Murrieta and San Dimas stage races

I just registered for both races.  Murrieta is on the 14th and 15th.  San Dimas is from the 20th to the 22nd.  Like I said in the last post, if you know anyone that lives in either of these cities, let me know.  I have a friend who lives somewhat close to San Dimas, but I have no idea what I’m going to do for Murrieta.  Maybe sleep in a park or something.  It wouldn’t be the first time.

And even more important news: I’m feeling better!

Here’s a list of things I did/used to attempt to get over this cold:

Starting with the things I do anyways:
Tons of vitamin C
Vitamin D
Fish oil capsules
Multi vitamins
9+ hours of sleep a night
laying down for the majority of the day
lots of fluid
lots of food
cocoa powder

And now onto the things I added when I got sick:
Acidopholus (a pro-biotic)
extra yogurt
blue berries
A huge pot of chicken noodle soup
extra spicy food (cayenne pepper to everything)
kept my room extra warm at night
onion with sugar poured on it, left overnight in the fridge
head held over hot water with a towel wrapped around to breath in steam
lots of hot baths
iron pills
extra protein (meat)
bacon and eggs for breakfast
$40 of over the counter drugs
extra hill intervals
wishing bad fortune onto others
clothes washing
salt water gurgling
virgin sacrifice (needless to say it was not Mrs. Brunelle)
extra sleep at night
skipped work
skipped races
quadroupled my vitamin c
hydrogen peroxide in my ears (for the ear infection part of the cold)
olive oil in my ears to counter the drying out caused by the hydrogen peroxide
rubbing alcohol in my ears to counter the wetness caused by the olive oil
over the counter ear wax removal drops
nasal salt water rinses
rest (time off the bike)

We’ll never know what did it in the end…
