Well, when you look closely the seams are poorly done so I just assumed it was a made in China cheap knock off. It even feels like a tennis ball, unless you try to squeeze it. It's as hard as a rock. Nobody could squeeze it at all, not even a little bit. Worst of all, it doesn't bounce like a tennis ball.
Still, it works perfectly for the intended purpose, which is to roll against sore muscles. There are lots of sore muscles around. I won't get into it, but they do seem to be getting better.
Only a few of my readers will recognize our guests, but they are famous, in some ways. We had a great time with them visiting. Lots and lots of wine! To say nothing of amazing meals. We got in a very nice run Sunday morning, up to the reservoir and back, just over 1 hour running nice and easy, chatting all the way. Beautiful weather. If I'd been ambitious, I should have gone for a bike ride after they left. Running felt good, and helped relax the tight muscles in my back.
I've got a new wine kit started, an Italian Primitivo.
