My new best friend is good for me. He helps me be a better runner, makes me cry sometimes because he beats me up and he is always there for me. What more could I need?
The Foam Roller is amazing! How was I an avid runner for five years and never own one of these?! After long runs I get the worst hip and IT band soreness. This works like a charm to make sure my legs are properly stretched and ready for the next run. Also, you can do different exercises with it. Multi-faceted and fabulous.
If you're a runner and don't have one. I highly suggest you look into it. For $15, it could save your life. Okay, maybe not your life, but at least your legs :)
I even taught Jackson (18 months) how to use it. He really just enjoys rolling over it until he face plants, but he can't get enough. Bek, next time I'll get a picture. You'll crack up.
