New post: The last two weeks of @nycmarathon training. (Not great!)

Another day, another failed attempt to make it to yoga. But, again, I went shopping, because I don’t own a “light jacket” and wanted one for the trip. So I went to J.Crew and, naturally, I found myself mid-shop and in need of a bathroom immediately .
