      I love pigeon pose. :) I haven't been running as much as I was either. The legs do tend to tighten up from that. Hope you're feeling like yourself again soon!

      Thanks guys. "I should have changed the stupid locks" comes to mind. The ex kept using the house as a free grocery store, dumping ground, plus reading my mail. Anyway $129 and freedom!

      How about some yoga, and a few hail Mary's:-) I wonder what a nun who runs and has tight hamstrings and glutes uses for a simile:-)? And how would she run with that habit?
