Happy Friday, friends! I am particularly looking forward to this weekend because one of my very good friends is GETTING MARRIED!! I am so excited to be a part of her special day and celebrating ALL THE LOVE! It’s going to be great.
What’s not so great?
Remember in yesterday’s Thinking Out Loud post, I mentioned that I needed some head shots for a new sidebar image? Well above are some of the gems that came out of yesterday’s mini photo shoot. Told you I get all awkward and weird. Crazy faces FTW. A half decent one was finally chosen (took at least 50 shots to get it) and will be up shortly. Phew. Glad that’s over.
Onto the good stuff.
A while back I was chosen to be an Ambassador for PRO Compression, a company I’ve been supporting for a few years now. I know I’ve mentioned them before (and a lot of you already use PC gear) but if this is your first time hearing about them, WELCOME! PRO Compression creates some pretty awesome performance socks for endurance training. I wear mine both during and after my runs/races to help with blood flow, reduce swelling, and speed up recovery.
…my pink marathon socks to the Yonge Street 10K…
…and my purple marathon socks to the Sporting Life 10K.
I think it’s safe to say I kind of dig these socks.
I will admit that they are a bit tough to put on but it’s because of the graduated compression which you can read about here. It’s worth it and makes the socks that much more effective.
They come in a bunch of different colours which we all know is #1 on the importance scale because…#runmatchy – am I right or am I right? We need to colour coordinate, especially when it comes to race day outfits!
Now PRO Compression is giving one of YOU the chance to win a pair of calf sleeves or marathon socks for yourself! All you have to do is check out the PC goods and leave me a comment below telling me which ones you would choose (I am currently obsessed with the MJ socks).
Winner will be announced on Monday, June 23. Good Luck!
