The Expectations vs. Realities of Foam Rolling

If there is one thing I love to hate, it's the foam roller. "Foam roller every single day" my Physical Therapist Mike Riccardi advises me. If by, "Foam roll every single day" you actually mean sit on my foam roller while I check Instagram, then Yes. Yes Mike, I foam roll every single day. These are the expectations vs. realities of foam rolling.

Anyone else guilty?

Kelly Roberts

My name is Kelly Roberts and I am a 25 year old New York City resident. My story made headlines when I took selfies with hot guys “hottie hunting” my way through the NYC Half Marathon. My blog, is bursting with humor and personal stories that lend an insight into the world of running and lead you to believe that just about anyone, regardless of their fitness level, can and should fall in love with running. Though currently an avid runner, I never would have predicted I would run marathons. I was the kid who used to hide in the bushes or play dead to get out of running the mile in school. I HATED running. But running has given me a purpose. It’s shown me that I really am limitless. In the two years since I started running, I’ve run multiple half marathons, 10ks, and 5ks, and two full marathons. My mission is to inspire others to find the courage to say yes to themselves all the while making them laugh hysterically because laughing is the solution to everything.
