Okay, I figured out the constant need to eat all the time. It's a cold. I don't know why but when I'm getting a cold, I'm super hungry. Maybe that's where "feed a cold, starve a fever" comes from.
Another problem with this cold is that I have no energy (or lung capacity) to run. I did manage a mile on Wednesday, and that was even before a cough had really developed. Running is not happening again for a few more days at least.
I received the best complement today and the person who said it probably wasn't even aware that it was a complement. I was carrying a 5-gallon water jug (40 pounds) and she said "It amazes me that someone as small as you can carry that"! I'm "small". . .and strong(ish)!!!
