Just Ran 8 Miles...
That’s the longest I’ve ever run/hobbled/crawled in my life. Ever. Now only five additional ones on race day!! Hah… Time to puke! Also, the two Marc by Marc Jacobs clothing items I listed on eBay are still available, and all the money will go to my fundraising efforts….

Cross-Training With YouTube: Free Yoga and Pilates...
To be honest, I’ve had a hard time finding the motivation to do much cross-training. I feel like I spend all my time running and I’ve had to struggle to fit in strength training.

Unfortunately...
