This, That and The Other Thing

This: Emily and I received our first blog award! How fun! Thanks Twila You all should check her out! She and her friend Kris are also doing 2010 in 2010, except, they're EACH doing 2010! Talk about rock stars! Amazing. Here's their blog, and here's Twila's personal blog. The rules of the award are to share seven random things about yourself, and then pass the award on to seven more bloggers. Em and I will each share our seven random things, and then work together to pick seven blogs to pass the award on to! Be sure to check back soon.

That: My runs have been tough lately. I took a few days off to rest what I thought was a strained quad, but now I'm thinking maybe it's closer to my groin. Just going to take it slow a few days and see where I end up. (Let's hope it's not in the Dr's office!)

The other thing: I went out and bought a foam roller last night, and gave it a try this evening. I had imagined this magical massaging sensation. Not. so. much. It was quite a bit more painful than I thought. That said, I feel GREAT now. My legs feel better than they have since I started this adventure! Hooray for feeling good! If you've never tried one, I highly recommend it. Even the kids have had a great time rolling around on it.
