I now realize the poor timing of my 5K race recap . A turtle posting
about a 3:11 personal best and an almost sub-30-minute 5K on April Fools' Day
was probably not the best decision. But, every word is true.
the way, I'm really not a fan of April Fools' Day. I guess because I'm a
fool. I'm just too darn gullible and naive, so I'll believe almost
anything. Please don't remember this next April 1.
past week, I've had hip/hamstring/quad pain. I tried to run on Sunday
(after not running the past week), and I just couldn't do it. It
really felt like my hamstring was going to snap. Yikes. So, I started
getting mopey and dramatic, assuming I'd miss my scheduled races, and
knowing I'd have to write about an injury. Thankfully, I'm not doing
that. Instead, I'm writing about the wonders of a massage therapist,

"give-you-goosebumps good" in concert. I figured this, but it is nice to

of my recent photos are from spring training games, where I have to
wear a hat to protect my Caspar-like skin from the sun. The other photos
involve sweat-soaked, pulled back hair (thanks to running) that don't
show it either. So, I have some lighter pieces of hair now. Take my word for it.
Back to Bruno, I'm still majorly obsessed with this song.
Radio stations don't play it nearly enough. If they could quit playing the "I Will Wait" song and play this instead, that would be fabulous (sorry to the many, many, many Mumford & Sons fans).
Do you like April Fools' Day? Ever work out a potential injury with massage, stretching or foam rolling (or all)? Bruno Mars or Mumford & Sons?
