So this is how recovery feels..

If you are a runner  (or any athlete really) I don’t have to tell you that once you are on the sidelines with an injury.. when you gradually work back into training.. its an AMAZING feeling. Case in point: Last night I ran my first full mile on the treadmill and when I finished, I felt incredibly blessed. Scratch that- the ENTIRE mile I felt so happy and overjoyed to be running.

There's also a nice little letter inside that calls you "chef" and makes you feel REALLY SPECIAL!! Not only do they send you all the ingredients you need (sans some salt and pepper or oil here and there) but they send
