The sports massage for my hurting IT band? Heavenly. And I learned so much about my muscles, stretching, and how to prevent the injury.
I skipped my 18 miler to be safe, but did a 14-mile run, a 6-mile run, and today, a 5-mile hill run. The hills sucked. I learned that I need to do more of them pre-marathon.
And Chloe and I made it all the way back to VA Beach… a bajillion hours of traffic later.
In case you were worried, all is okay with the house. Other than a struggling fence, a stray piece of siding (of whose origin is yet to be found), and a very large branch on the ground, the house fared Hurricane Irene well.
Except for Chloe’s favorite toy found up a tree.
