My idea of 1/2 marathon recovery:The patent-pending "Compression Cat." I think all athletes should have one to place on those legs after a long run. Plus, it's got a built in warming feature and subtle massaging vibration via "purring." Perfect companion to...Run, Zoë, Run!'s idea of compression/recovery socks! Stylish, yet supportive structure with durability and warmth. Found at any local Target, Ross, or TJ Maxx.
Add a LOT of H2O and you are set! Woohoo! Speedy Half Marathon Recovery! ;)
