    This seems like a pretty random first time comment, but I’ve been following for awhile and just wanted to say that I’m glad I’m not the only one that eats kiwi skin. Anytime I eat kiwi fruit with the skin I get very strange looks and when I tell them that the skin is actually quite tasty, they REALLY think I’m nuts.

    Congratulations on your first marathon! I loved reading about your journey.

    I definitely agree with you about the sweet chili sauce! And I’ve never seen anyone eat their kiwi with the skin on haha

    I’ve never had a massage, but I’m thinking that might change this summer!

    I always start out loving seaweed salad, and by the end, I’m kind of sick of it. I think it’s just too salty.

    I’ve heard great things about the massage envy place. I’m glad you enjoyed your well-deserved massage and bath.

    I haven’t said this before but thanks for raising money for those battling leukemia! my grandfather just passed away a few months ago from the disease and it is Really horrible to watch someone go thru that. I’m glad there are ppl like you out there who care enough to raise money and run for something greater than yourself!! you are truly amazing! So, Thanks!!!

    I love/hate massages like that. Sometimes it’s nice to just lay there and relax, but it’s definitely better to get your kinks worked out.

    Glad you had a relaxing evening! Baths are amazing!

    i’m glad you had a good experience at massage envy. i actually didn’t — i felt like the service i got was sort of impersonal and the massage was meh compared to others that i’ve had. i prefer a non-chain, local salon. but $39/hr is a pretty fabulous price!

    Hmm, seaweed salad does not look like something I’d like, but that breakfast sure looks terrific.

    Glad you’re felling stretched out and better!

    What a colorful breakfast!

    Those rolls that accompanied your seaweed salad are Shrimp Summer Rolls. At least, that’s what they’re called here in DC πŸ™‚ And I love them.

    Good for you for treating yourself to some R&R. And $39 for an hour? I thought $80 was a steal – that’s fantastic!

    Meghann- amazing call on the massage! It is soooo painful but worth it and so needed! And the bath too! It helps with relieving the tension. I hope you are feeling better now- not that you were feeling really bad by the sounds of it. πŸ™‚

    Have a great day!

    Your breakfast looks amazing!! I bet the massage was just what you needed, though I couldn’t have imagined getting a massage right after my first marathon. Everything hurt SO much for almost a week after that I probably would have gone through the roof if someone had applied pressure to my muscles. Glad you’re recovering well!

    It’s good to take a night off and just pamper yourself!

    Which reminds me, its probably been A YEAR since my last bath – sounds good!

    I can’t do massages – I am so ticklish I end up laughing the whole time!

    Do you not peel your skin on your kiwi??

    Those are Vietnamese summer rolls…I LOVE them! In fact, that’s what I get when I (rarely) get to go to Cheesecake factory, along with a salad. Mmm! Glad the massage helped so much!

    I didn’t know that you can eat kiwi skins!! My mother always told me that eating the skins of a kiwi will tear your stomach up lol, I guess mama ain’t always right πŸ™‚ Glad you treated yourself to a massage! You totally deserve it

    I love Massage Envy! I keep debating about signing up for their membership plan, but it just seems so…indulgent! Maybe that’s not a bad thing πŸ™‚

    I LOVE the spring rolls and that chili sauce too!

    I found a recipe that I made that resembles it ALOT.

    I really think the TJ’s Mango Ginger Chutney is best, but, I know you don’t have a TJ’s there πŸ™

    Way to treat yourself! I often have to remind myself that my body needs rest just like it needs exercise (and chocolate doesn’t hurt either). …my husband is a certified massage therapist, so I’m kind of spoiled, too.

    I love those spring rolls with the crab, shrimp and avocado as well. I think we have the same brand here because it has that same delicious sweet chili sauce.

    Quick ? – What blogging software do you use on your mac??

    It’s nice to see someone else eats the kiwi skin. Everyone always thinks it’s weird but even back when I barely ate any fruit kiwi was my favourite and I always ate them whole like an apple (minus the little stem at the end). So delicious.

    About that pain behind the back of your knee…I started having pain behind the back of my knee about 8 years ago while playing tennis one day and it turned out that I had a low, partial tear of my hamstring. It ended up requiring about 2 months of physical therapy and while never totally healed, it doesn’t bother me much now. I’d get that checked out if it keeps bothering you. Good luck!
