I love them. A coworker of mine whose husband went to a seminar last night on compression socks had all kinds of good things to say about them, including they can help improve your marathon time. I'm hooked!
Their sock of the month for June came out and I am in LOVE with the new color...ORANGE.
Normally their socks are $50, but you can order these for 40% off ($30) with the coupon code SOM610 when you check out, with free shipping. (and who doesn't love scoring free shipping?)
The code is good until July 10 or till they are out of orange socks.
2. I saw a Rock and Roll Marathon semi headed down the interstate on Monday, probably coming from Seattle this weekend. Headed to wherever the next stop is maybe. That got me all excited since I am planning on a Rock and Roll Marathon/Half Marathon or two this fall. As a part of Team Refuel I get free race bibs on a first come first serve basis. I have two secured.
3. Chaffing, all the crazy humidity and sweating I did yesterday on my hot 10 mile long run caused my thighs to chafe. OUCH! The last two miles seemed really long and I kept trying to pull the shorts down to cover it but it was just beyond where the shorts wanted to be. The sweaty shors kept making the chaffed area burn anyway. I have never had this problem. Probably because it is so rarely humid where I live in Montana.
I took a picture of it but could not bring myself to post it because it looks so gross, like I have a nasty rash or something.
Note to self: Use Body Glide for the marathon whether or not I think I will need it. Chaffing burns!
