Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or an antelope -- when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. -African proverb

I have never been very flexible.  When I was little, lots of my friends could pull their heads down to their knees while keeping their legs straight.  Not me!  Flexibility -- at least the muscular kind -- is not one of my strengths.  I am working on it, though.  I try to squeeze in some stretching and rolling after every run.  It's hard to figure out why stretching is such a chore.   It's not like it is particularly hard or painful.  But, I pretty much have to force myself to do it.  I also try to go to yoga once a week.  I go to Bikram yoga (aka hot yoga).  I was pretty consistent before summer started.  Now I'm trying to get back into it.  I am still trying to decide if I like it or not.  I think I will like how it relates to running once I have gone consistently.  We'll see how it goes the next time I roll out my mat ...  Stay tuned!
