And The Verdict Is… [Video Blog]



(can we just talk about how good looking I am?
MAN, that’s a nice screen capture up there.)

I’m psyched.

You should be psyched.

These girls were psyched.

I’m choosing to treat my shin issues aggressively. I will be going to my Active Release Technique therapy twice a week until the Williamsburg Half Marathon on May 22, and although I can’t “race,” I’m still allowed to jog the run.

I’m a little disappointed since this was going to be the first half marathon for which I’d officially go all out, but hey… I’d rather have healthy shins and run with my running twin. 😉

In a nutshell, in my new desk job, sitting all day has made my hips and quads really tight. This puts too much stress on my shins and calves when I run, so with the massage therapy and area-targeted stretching, I should be okay in no time.

Three cheers for good news! Happy dances all around!


But slow, easy happy dances. No hills or speedwork. Don’t get ahead of yourselves.

  21. that video is just too cute. SO happy for you lady! Take it easy with the running 🙂

  22. I gotta say, you so rock at Vlogs! No wonder it’s your j-o-b. BTW, you have tight hips and quads?! Well apparently I have MESSY hips!!!! Some guy at the marathon expo the other weekend told me this, and i was like… “um excuse me WHAT does ‘messy’ hips mean?!?!!” He then went on to say they are “loose…” as in “flexible”. Hm. Looks like it’s hard to be just normal! Le sigh…

    Oh, and another BTW, i loved the way you said “specificity”. It sounds like the way I say “statistics”… i have to think about it really hard to say it right sometimes. I’m odd. It’s fine.

  23. BEST video EVER! That was hilarious 🙂
    & I’m SOOO Happy for you 😀

  24. Saved as a favorite, I really like your site! 🙂
