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.

Monday thoughts: Love, but need to get these pants tailored ASAP. Tuesday: Department shirt, slacks, pony.  Boring. Wednesday: Love the dress and so comfy.  Paired with sandals to...
