I completed my first ½ marathon ever at the age of 38 and at 219 pounds! I knew that the course was going to be very challenging, but nothing, not even the training I had been doing since June, prepared me for the conditions on October 5, 2013. MUD…..uphill for almost the first 5 miles!!
I was certain that my body was going to be very sore, stiff, and plain tired after this accomplishment. So, knowing the benefits of Lymphatic Drainage massage, I booked an appointment with Aimee at Whole Health Center for the same afternoon of the race.
After receiving this light, relaxing bodywork, I went home, soaked in an Epsom salt bath, & relaxed for the rest of the evening. To my surprise, when I woke up the next morning, my body felt like I didn’t do the race at all!!
What a great feeling! Thanks to Aimee’s extensive knowledge, she helped me recover much faster than anticipated!
