Call me crazy

Workout - 30 min run with a few hills (NO PAIN!)

All you need in life is PVC piping. Really. Call me crazy, but I really don't like spending a bunch of money on a piece of plastic that I could make at home. Maybe its a side effect of being a college student? I guess it just makes me feel like I'm outsmarting the corporate world. I think that is also a side effect of being a college student.

There's this stick, called The Stick
It retails for about $20

yes it seems cool. yes it has soft handles. yes it has pink on it (usually my weakness)
But I think I could save some dinero by making something comparable myself.

So what did I do? I made my own version from Green Thumb.
It may not work exactly the same, and it may not have any pink (sigh) but it rolls on my calf muscles and bottoms of my feet quite well! If I want more concentrated pressure I'll use a golf ball.
Take that corporate world!

Today I make the rookie mistake (really, when do I not make rookie mistakes?) of not checking my garmin before I stretched outside, warmed my legs up, and started jogging down the road. The screen kept flashing "Bezel Locked". 

Do I know how to unlock it? Nope. Do I want to turn back home and google how to unlock it? Double nope.
So I just kept jogging without my trusted garmin. It actually turned out to be a great run because I really had no care about distance. I was just focusing on my breathing, noticing my terrain, and thoroughly enjoying the run. I guess runners can survive without their garmin!

Most importantly, I haven't posted my picture in 3 posts, which is like, 3 post too many. Whose blog is this?.
Much better.

Tomorrow after I get out of class Eric and I are heading down to the Hollywood Bowl for a Coldplay concert! I've never been there before. Have you? We've had these tickets for literally months, I almost forgot we had them! Should be a great time.
