Remembering how to do this...
It's amazing. It's been a while since I actually tried to lose some pounds. And, I am just now really remembering the weird inner-dialogue that takes place. One side of the brain wants to snack to procrastinate, or to fulfill some salt or s... Read more

ING NYC MARATHON - NOVELLA - PART TWO
I looked and in the middle of the huddle was a tiny, elderly Asian woman running with her eyes shut, being guided by two of the other ladies. The woman with pom-poms ran up and rubbed the pom-poms in her face. Because she couldn't see them.
