HELLO, FRIENDS…..I’m Jim Nantz and welcome to the 79th Annual Master’s Tournament in Augusta Georgia…..

Okay, so it’s not quite the same as when he does it – but it’s close.  IT’S MASTERS WEEK!!!!!!

For those of you that want a little chuckle and actually know what I’m talking about – check this video out:



You might recognize Jim Nantz from March Madness – he’s been doing announcing there too. He announced one of La Salle’s games (they won that game – I do not think it’s a coincidence).  He has magic in him.  🙂


Moving on…..I was on somewhat of a hiatus this weekend with this here blog.  Mainly because I was busy but also because I’ve been having severe allergy issues.  Anyone else?

I still managed to get in all my workouts but after my run yesterday was incredibly lightheaded so I am taking the day to go to the doctor and see what’s what.  I know that everyone is saying allergies are at their very worst this year but I have NEVER experienced them like this before.  I have taken any and all allergy medicines you can think of and my nose is still running, my eyes are still swollen, my head still feels like it’s in a vice, and the pressure – oh the pressure.  My nose is officially rudolph-esque and raw to the core so I’ve been putting aquaphor on it nonstop but I can’t stop blowing my nose so it’s basically redundant.  Whatever.

My nose is redder

Elsewhere – I mentioned I did manage to get my workouts in this weekend.  I taught spin on Friday and Saturday and ran on Sunday morning.  I always felt better after each of these as my head was basically draining the entire time I was working out but inevitably I was down for the count afterwards.

How do I know it’s allergies and not a cold or flu?  Because the rest of my body is perfectly fine.  If it wasn’t there is no way I would’ve been able to run 6.5 miles yesterday morning.  I’ve run half marathon’s with cold’s before – no big deal.  I actually run better because everything is heightened.  But truth be told – this is kind of ridiculous.

Yup – all of this

I never used to have allergies.  Growing up I really can not remember a day where I had this many issues.  It wasn’t until I moved away and then came back from Florida that I found my eyes watering, my ears and throat hurting and my head compressed into what felt like a small ball.  I’ve heard similar problems from other people.

Truth be told – yesterday had to be the worst part of it.  I was bridesmaid dress shopping with my best friend from college and after I ate I had some sort of allergic reaction.  My entire face was red, my eyes were swollen and my face was burning hot.  I had to leave early so I could go home and put ice on my face

I wasn't kidding

I wasn’t kidding

After about an hour the swelling and redness went down.  I could still feel the burning on my skin but an hour later I was okay.

As I woke up this morning – I felt and still feel great.  Like a new person.  But – my nose is still running and my throat is now scratchy.  I know the doctor will be able to help.
