A Blissful Evening April 13, 2010

With a week to go until the marathon, I enjoyed an evening of indulgence last night. To reward my body for months of running, I booked a massage at Bliss Spa in Hollywood.

A couple of years ago, I won a magazine contest and the reward was a giftcard to Bliss! (I know, can you believe it took me 3 years to use it up? I was savoring it!)
It just opened up in the new W Hotel down there. I adore chic hotels even if I’m not staying there. It’s just fun to walk around a look at the decor (and maybe steal a cup of orange flavor water in the reception area!)

I went a half hour early so I could relax before hand. I had my own locker with a robe. So fun!
And of course I grabbed some cheese, crackers and BROWNIES! Mmmm

Then I grabbed a magazine and relaxed here for a while until the massage!

The massage was great. The masseuse was actually blind, but it was seriously the most amazing massage I’ve ever had. He used to work at Burke-Williams. I just felt like he was really in tune with every muscle. It was part schiatzu, part swedish. and 100% euphoric. He even put a paraffin wrap on my feet and a cucumber mask on my eyes. Pure Bliss!

I told him I was running a marathon in a week, so he took good care of my calves, IT Band and shins.

Now I feel like I’m ready for Boston both physically and mentally. I just can’t believe I only have 5 days left!

Just a reminder that anyone who donates to Dana-Farber via my fundraising site by tomorrow (Wednesday) gets entered to win the autographed Soccer Ball!! I’ll pick a random winner after work around 9pPST.

Let me know if you’ll be on the sidelines so I know where to look for you!
