One of the keys to running is making sure that in addition to the running that you are doing you are also keeping up on preventative care on your muscles that take a beating race after race. One of the best ways to relax on a running off day and day out of the office is to treat yourself to a massage. This Saturday, I headed to Assonet to Restoration Massage for an hour long massage. Restoration Massage is currently running a first-time member special for an hour massage for $35. Especially after last weekend’s tough trail run a massage was the perfect way to unwind and the folks at Restoration did an amazing job!
This morning I headed out to Hopkinton which is the hometown of the famous Boston Marathon’s starting line. With the marathon ready to kick off tomorrow, the town common was a great spot to visit today and the weather of 65 and sunny was ideal. Marathon runners were snapping photos around town and myself and some of the Thirsty Irish Runners took a 4.5 mile fun run. The run was on some residential roads through the town of Hopkinton and we finished back at the town common.
