Awesome! It’s not gummy or slippery as expected. I’m not

through the day either.” —myrrick

clean.” —Roy N.
Get it from Amazon for $15.95.
Promising review: “This strap really works. It’s
as if you have another person helping you stretch the
areas that are difficult. My back feels less fatigue

short training runs with the tape I was able to run the
Cherry Blossom 10 miler (slowly and very carefully

Get one from Amazon for $10.00.
Promising review: “This thing is amazing! I use
it on the backs of my thighs after running (or
mowing…) and it’s solved a lot of issues. I don’t
recommend it for less “fleshy” or “muscular” parts as
its a bit too much … For me anyhow. Excellent
purchase! Highly recommended.” —Tav
14. This slim “Buddy Pouch” to comfortably keep all
your essential gear on you while you’re out for a

days, my overall pain has decreased quite a bit. I try
to use it for 10 minutes twice a day and even brought
it to work today tucked under my desk. I am a nurse and
on my feet a lot. I have recommended this to several
co-workers.” —Lori G
