Since we’re not along for the ride to coach your pre-, during-, and post-relay “reset,” we’ve got your sore runner butt covered with #vanyoga. Jasyoga veteran Jacquelyn Komen — racing with Oiselle’s #MotherFlockers, a sweet collab between the birds and Every Mother Counts — demos simple ways to help counter some of the not-so-ideal side effects of running and sitting (crushed hip flexors, anyone?), all from the comfort of the mobile studio…Down time in the van is a great opportunity to practice relaxing efficiently since, hey, conditions might not be ideal, but it’s the only chance you get to hit reset. Hold each pose for 5–8 deep breaths or as long as you flippin’ feel like it. Repeat.
