La Tortura (pre-race)

One of these days, I'll really buckle down and actually train for my races. Like, full on follow the schedule and eat right and not stress and have a cig or two the week before the big day. I'll follow the plan all the way through the end and not stop training the last month... Continue Reading →



Sometimes, you just want to say "fuck decorum" and just put it all out there because it's therapeutic.  Because blasting people that need to be blasted eases my mind and soothes my soul.
