Who wants to hear a funny story?
The first race I ever ran was the Conejo Valley Turkey Day Dash in November 2009. It took me 36 minutes and 34 seconds to run a 5k. That was also the farthest I had ever run outside in my life. I felt proud and accomplished while I gobbled down turkey and stuffing and potatoes and pumpkin pie that night.
The next morning, however, was a different story. I COULD NOT MOVE. To this day, I don’t think I have ever been so sore. I could barely walk and my calves would scream in pain if I tried to get up after sitting for longer than 3 minutes. Oh, and then we went to San Francisco for the weekend where I had to walk every where and I looked like an 85-year-old.
This is relevant I swear!
Fast forward to April of 2012 – PRO Compression graciously sent our Ragnar Relay team some of their compression socks to wear for training and during the relay. I remember putting them on after a long run and thinking “This is what Heaven feels like!”. I had worn compression sleeves before but wasn’t sold on them, but the PRO Compression socks have just the right amount of squeeze, they are SUPER long (which I love) and come in tons of fun colors.
During our LA marathon training, I even got Jason hooked on PRO Compression as well. We look so stinkin’ cute in our matching socks on Saturdays :)
I usually throw on my socks right after we get in from our run and wear them for the rest of the day until bed and I have yet to wake up with any soreness in my calves the following morning. I swear by these babies! And you know where we run there are some serious hills and if it weren’t for PRO Compression I’m sure I’d be gimping around the office every Monday morning.
So now for the exciting part – YOU can win a pair of PRO Compression socks for yourself! You can receive an entry for doing each of the following (leave a separate comment for each item you complete to enter):
I’ll be randomly selecting a winner on Sunday, 3/3. Good luck!
