    Thanks so much for sharing your post-run routine! There’s some moves I’m going to add to my own routine like the downward dog push ups which for some reason never occurred to me. Changing it up a bit keeps it interesting. Also liked that you captured the entire routine so I can do it along with you, my virtual workout buddy! ๐Ÿ™‚
