low iron

After having such a good run around Liberty last week, I had no gas in my tank today. We took three walk breaks, and just generally felt tight and tired. I think that I know the culprits, though. I forgot to drink much water yesterday, and when I went to give blood my iron was so low that they turned me away. I'm eating all of the things that I should be eating, and it's not that time of the month, so there is something going on with my body. I need to remember to take a daily vitamin (which will have iron) and see if that helps. Otherwise, I'll have to start an iron supplement. Oh, by the way, it was stinking COLD today! 25*! But, there were eight other runners at the park. Carol and I were both surprised.
