Is that a noodle? No, it’s a foam roller for self-myofascial release

Bailey & I have recently experienced some intermittent Iliotibial Tract (IT Band) issues.  So what do we do?  We turn to our friends and google. 

We read a few articles that explain the foam roller technique then chatted with Bailey’s sister & Margaret - they've been using a foam roller for several months and swear by it.  Heck, I wouldn’t be surprised if Margaret writes a detailed review under our “Injury Prevention” page. 

Anyway, we've committed to using the roller after our workouts, so far so good.  Plus it's a great conversation starter for passersby in the parking lot.
