Marathon training is going so well, to the point where I look forward to 12-mile runs on a Saturday morning. And right smack dab in the middle of all that goodness—a cold hits. Like, I woke up this morning and it was all stuffy nose, sore throat and cough, cough, cough. So now I’m trying to speed heal in order to be ready for our 14-mile training run this weekend. This weekend! So soon!
My go-to cold remedy is always a vegan diet, and the lack of dairy contributes to a lack of mucus, so, hopefully I’ll be feeling better tomorrow morning. We’ll see. (I’m not much for over-the-counter cold meds, they make me spacey and a little nauseated.) For now, it’s lots of healthy foods and maybe—just maybe—some super helpful advice from my favorite bloggers? Any suggestions for feeling better soon are welcome!
Side note: Because we’re in Los Angeles, we have the chance to try Amazon Fresh grocery delivery. We had bunches of fresh produce delivered today at Trader Joe’s prices. Worth. Every (though not many). Penny.

I am a huge fan of the netipot. Weird at first but shortens all my colds. I too go no OTC meds
I keep hearing about the netipot—I guess I’ll have to try it, even if it kind of freaks me out! 🙂 Thank you!
My top cold remedy is oil of oregano and Cold 9-11 tea! I take the oil of oregano straight under my tongue, bit a few drops can also be mixed with water as well. I was starting to feel a cold come on about a week and a half ago and everybody at work was sick so I got right on that and I managed to evade it! I hope you feel better in time for run!
Thank you so much for the advice!
