Friday Favorites

First off - Yesterday was a great day!


When I got out of work it was 55F!  I drove home, changed into my running clothes (short sleeves and capris!) and went for a 5.5 mile tempo run.  It was glorious!  My legs felt amazing even though it was my fourth day in a row of running! I really think those recovery runs are doing their job!!

After my workout, I quickly showered and headed to my first orthopedic massage!  I told the man all about my problem areas (right hip, left knee, right foot) and he knew exactly what to do.  Apparently my right hip was almost an inch lower than my left hip which could have been causing my knee pain and also my foot pain!  It is so amazing how everything is connected - maybe I should have gone into orthopedics!

After an hour and a half of working on my legs, I felt great but tired!  My hips are now the same height and my legs are ready to go!  If you can find a place near you that specializes in orthopedic massage, I definitely recommend checking them out because it was well worth it!

congrats on a great run! This weather is amazing; I wish it would last just a few days longer! Your massage sounds amazing. Does it feel a bit strange to have your hips in line after so long of being out of place?

I died my wedding shoes a bright pink to match the flowers I was carrying. It was awesome to have that little peek of color under my dress. Everyone was surprised! You should go for the red!

oooo, those hairstyles are a good start! That was always my favorite part about high school formal dances... the fancy updos. Can't wait to see what you choose!
