The Original Rollga Roller for Runners and Athletes

There are so many great tools to use now for Myo-Fascial Release to help your body recover after a hard workout.  I recently received the Original Rollga Roller to try.  The Rollga is great for helping with neck and back pain, shin splints and plantar fasciitis,  and IT Band therapy. This roller is set up with different zones that you can use to target different areas. The roller comes with a brief guide of different stretches and exercises that you can do and a strap for ease of carrying to your next race!

If you watched the finish of the 2017 NYC Marathon you witnessed all of the hard work and dedication of Shalane Flanagan pay off as she won the women’s marathon. Runners everywhere were inspired by her running performance. She executed this race with perfection but the bigger story behind her run is what she has done to elevate women’s distance running in the United States by brining along other talented runners in her own quest for success. She is what defines a true leader and what women everywhere should hope to emulate. By working together with others to achieve your own personal success your success will be greater as will that of those who work together with you. This article is definitely worth the read!
