on running: the baseball on my table

Someone asked me the other day why there’s a baseball on my dining room table. I need it to run. And the conversation went on from there, so I didn’t really get to explain why.

But there’s a very simple explanation.

As I sit at the table, I put the baseball on the floor and use it to massage the bottom of my feet. I read somewhere to use a golf ball, but I don’t have golf balls lying around my house. Baseballs, though. I have plenty of. When I started running with the Frees, I was a little concerned about the lack of arch support.

The baseball is a great way to relax those muscles, though. To stretch them out. And it feels really good after a run.

So…that’s why there’s a baseball on my dining room table.
