I've known Jenny H for a few years. She took ALL the sweet photos in my showdown with Devon at the 2013 Gear West Duathlon race report because Jenny's man was my teammate for that race:
I love this pic of me and Pete in our awesome shorts just before the 2013 Gear West Du.
Pete and I working hard at the GW Du
(before Devon and I become BFFFNs ["best friends forever for now"]).
From Pete and Jenny: 2014 and 2015 at the TC 10 Mile.
Just about 0.5 miles left! (So HURTING.) Thanks again for the pics guys!
Rolling up to Magna.
Some of the strength areas inside.
More of the inside.
Easily THEE nicest "gym shower" that I've ever seen.
It was convenient that I could leave my dirty, used marijuana needles in there.
(Yes, that's a joke. I know you take hits of marijuana by snorting it. Duh.)
- What I was USED to in the past was some needles being "flicked" in, feeling a slight prick when they went in, and then feeling nothing much as I laid there for 30 minutes with them in.
- What THIS was going to be was more of a gentle "ache" for 30 minutes as the needles sat in me. He said that this is the more traditional form of acupuncture. He didn't quickly "flick" the needles into me; instead, he worked them into my body between 1 and 5 seconds each. He noted that the purpose of this form of acupuncture is to get the body to react to the needles. As I laid there with approximately 15 needles in me for 25 minutes, I could close my eyes and practically count all the needles on my body because I could feel them. THAT was the biggest change from former "chiropractor acupuncture." They sure didn't hurt - I could just feel them. Robert noted it feels a bit like getting a sore area "worked out" by a masseuse.
Caption from an Instagram pic: "Had a great acupuncture treatment from Robert
here at @magnausa this morning, then some PT for
my ankle in the afternoon. Trying to get better ASAP!"
p.s. This just hit me based on the last photo. I have a Magna Fitness tag on my Tumblr page that I've used 3 times (all in 2015). I posted three photos from @magnausa on Instagram, and here they are:
I beg to differ, Jenny. I BEG TO DIFFER.
