Editing and Altitude 232/365Liza
I wrote this article about altitude sickness for irunfar’s first aid series.
It’s a fun scenario and quiz if you’re going to be running at altitude. But it has been edited. My friend is a great editor, but I question her judgment in this case. The article originally started:
Let’s talk about Altitude Illness baby
Let’s talk about you and me
Let’s talk about all the lousy things
And the dreadful things that may be
Let’s talk about Altitude Illness!

I mean, I guess I’ll stay friends with her, but her judgment will be suspect from here on out.
Also, the word “thus” was added to the article. And I want you all to know that I didn’t write “thus” — just like I would never say “thus.” I don’t want you to think I talk like a 9th grader on the high school debate team. Thus….
OK, now I feel better. Whew.
What’s making me happy: Banana messages at aid stations.
Running: 10 min easy, 3 x 8 min moderate with 3 min easy recovery.
