Hello friends and happy Friday! Downtown Charlottesville is buzzing today with runners ready to tackle the challenging Charlottesville Marathon or Half Marathon tomorrow morning. The weather looks like it will be absolutely beautiful for the races: 65 and sunny. As you know I can’t run because of my ongoing knee issues, but I had to go check out the expo today (even though it was sort of like torture because I’m not actually running).
I talked to some great vendors while I was a the expo, including the local Body Equilibrium Chiropractic and Therapy service, which explained a bit about the Melt Method. The Melt Method is a self-treatment technique that uses specialized rollers and balls to help decrease pain and heal injuries. Perfect for runners like myself who have dealt with nagging injuries (ITBS, plantar fascia) or wish to prevent them in the first place.
Body Equilibrium offers classes to teach the Melt Method and I hope to take one soon and report back!
The bra has a special hidden side pocket perfect for your ipod, phone, keeps, money, training Gus, etc. It’s perfect if you like to carry some cash with you on runs just in case (like I do) or just don’t want to bulk up your pockets with extra items while on your run.
The compression bra comes in black and white and is made of out wicking material to repel moisture. Its lower band helps to keep the bra in a stable position and reduces chafing around the bust line and back. It’s a great for medium and high impact sports like running OR if you aren’t a runner and want a hands-free way to carry around some extra items at the gym (like, say a locker key), this bra would be perfect for you! I’m seriously thinking about getting both colors. You know you want one…because, well…
You can get $5 off your order if you go to CoCo Designs and use the promo code “BRAK” 🙂
