Be-You-Tifully Fit: Taper town.

wpid-20150928_114801.jpgAnd taper has begun.  The last long run is complete.  Trying to keep the faith that all is going to go well race day but I.AM.TIRED.  This last week has been a crazy, chaotic one.  I'm on my last class and there's been fevers, car trouble, bills & doctor/dentist appointments.  A whole bunch of crazy.

Honestly I feel a little worn down mentally from it all more than physically.  Thank goodness friends have been messaging me or I may have completely retreated into my introvert hibernation cave.
