PSA: Flu shots

Don't forget to schedule a flu shot this fall, folks! It's already time to start getting them! A few minutes getting a shot could save you a couple weeks of training down the road - that's a pretty good payoff, right?

I just scheduled mine (and the girls') the same day that I need to drive over to Virginia to drop off my bike for shipment to Ironman Florida - Tuesday, October 24th. I've got a lot of riding to do between now and then!

Last night I was still kept awake coughing up jellyfish. Yuck. I didn't know I swallowed that many in the Choptank River last Saturday. Still, I hope to take the bike out for a few miles this afternoon.

Everyone I know who gets a flu shot still gets the flu as there are so many strains going around. I don't get the flu- I instead get that sore throat/chest/jellyfish thing you are getting over! My mom "reminds" me every year too...not gonna do it! I am stubborn I guess!

i got the flu one year after i got the flu shots. like 3 months after. i was not happy because i was nursing a baby and i lost all of my milk. i know we should get them this year, but i haven't decided yet. of course, if i don't, you know we'll all get it. bleh.

I go a flu shot one year and 4 days later I was in bed with the worst flu I'd ever had. Since then I've never had a flu shot and I've never been that sick again. Coincidence???? I think not!!!

i'm reading backwards...i thought you were using the "coughing up jellyfish" thing as a metaphor! Don't TELL ME THAT'S FOR REAL?!

and yep, flu shot is ON the agenda. Flu can kill you.
