I didn’t feel so good on the day of the Tulsa Hurricane Run – My back had been hurting and I felt just a general malaise – an undefinable feeling of debility or lack of health. Menstruation can cause a characteristic malaise in some women, however, that was not my problem that day.
I don’t know why I felt so weak and tired with a vague feeling of bodily discomfort. I told one of my fellow runners that it was just allergies and hayfever. But I really think I felt that way because of the medication I took for the allergies and hayfever.
Needless to say, my finishing time was embarassing.
