New Sock Obsession
Hi. My name is Tera and I am a runner. Wait, there’s more. As a runner, I am obsessed with shoes. I have shoes for short runs, shoes for long runs, shoes for trail runs, shoes for mud runs, shoes for post runs, shoes for “I want to look cute” runs and shoes for the days of non-runs. I even have a few boxes of shoes for future runs. In my head – shoes make the runs. That was until I discovered PRO Compression Socks. I have never been a huge believer in the whole compression sock thing. I thought they were just a silly looking sock that runners wore to look more “intense”. Really people? Don’t you know that a good run is all in the shoes? Durh!!! Well – durh to me. I am a woman and EVERYONE knows a woman is NEVER wrong, so I won’t say I was wrong about compressions socks. I was “misinformed”. The first time I wore my PRO Compression Marathon socks (which I received as a gift), I wore them because it was 20 degrees out and I didn’t want to freeze my toes off and all of my other socks were in the laundry (yes….not all women are the domestic kind and keep up on laundry. I’m a runner and running comes before any housework dammit). Off to a brisk 5K I went in my silly socks and, wouldn’t you know it, I PR’d. Fastest 5K ever. Huh, it couldn’t have been the socks. But just to make sure, I wore the same socks on my long run the following Monday. To my surprise my legs felt amazing and I was a little faster. Huh. Maybe there was something to these socks. A few days later I wore my regular cotton socks during a long run and my legs felt tired and like 2 bricks compared to the run in my compression socks. Again, I am a woman and I hate to be wrong so I had to try this experiment a few more times before I was a believer. AND now I am obsessed! My runs in either my marathon (long socks that go to the knees) or low PRO Compressions socks always feel better. No post race cramping, soggy feet or aches. I love my PRO Compression socks almost as I LOVE my shoes – and that’s saying a lot from Miss Shoes Fanatic. So why am I telling you this? Because I don’t want you to think that I am just another silly runner wearing these socks to look “intense”. There is a purpose for these socks and I don’t want you to miss out like I did. From now until July 10th, PRO Compression is offering a 40% discount if you use Coupon Code SMO610. AWESOME!!!!! But hurry, quantities are limited. I plan to get the new Marathon Orange socks today!!!!
