Grade: 3

Think I may have gotten a mild e coli bug towards the end of the week on the school camping trip. First couple days had to go 4-5x a day, and was uncontrollable at times. Started to go away after 3 days, but then came back and ended up persisting for 13. While course setting the Big Finn Hill park meet, I had to stop running because it made me feel so bad. Didn't train until two days before the Bridle Trails 5K.

Flushed out of system after 13 days, apparently. Towards the end, it only happened 1-2 x per day and was controlled. On day 11 at the Teanaway Forks race, I was able to run 6+ miles without incident. Of course, the day I get over it I get a cold.
