Great Blog Tall Mom. I dont see many men leaving comments. I would definately sport a pair of these throug any long run in any color. I also like they have a deal for arm sleves. Charlotte gets a little cool and with long sleves and long socks it makes a mid 30s run just warm enough.
I have been researching different calf recovery socks and these look great. They beat the ones I'm using now. I have the compression socks they give old people for circulation. They are good for post run or to sleep in after a long run. Big problem is they don't wick away the sweat. This post was at a good time I ran through 12.3 today with a sore right calf. My "Stick" is being held captive in my vehicle at the dealership. I have been using ice, but its not as good as the "Stick." With a chance to win a pair the brighter the better. I could even sport the pink this year in the race for the cure. Thanks again for posting a chance to win.

Would love a small pair of fuchsia recovery socks!

Used a pair of 'freebie' recovery socks post Kona IM this year and they really helped cut down on soreness. Am thinking that a good pair could only improve things!

I'd get the white socks. Tempted by the hot pink, but I'd have to go all old-school with white.

I've been thinking about recovery socks for awhile - I found their site very informative as to what the socks actually do to help with recovery after a long or hard run. Now I know I NEED a pair. Great.

I would love to win the Fuchsia Recovery Sock...I coach a team called Pink Nation and I would wear them proudly!

RunHapi13 said...

The website is informative but I think the colors are a bit dull, and they could definitely make it more brilliant!

I am now a FB Fan! Thanks!

After attempting my Boston Qualifier in Myrtle beach, I was on pace thru mile 21 but tearing my hamstring did me in. I walked backwards for 5 miles, holding my butt, crying but cheering on other racers! It was amazing! Afterwards I discovered ART - Active Release Technique - and was able to stay active through my injury and healing, and was back running within weeks! Well worth crossing the finish line walking backwards and the announcer saying "Here comes Dee from Mechanicsville, Va and...it looks like...her butt hurts!"

I have posted your Recovery Socks Giveaway on my blog! Fingers crossed!
Thanks!

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win a pair of medium fischia Recovery Socks...I have been coveting these for soooooo long, to wear after my long runs. I really need the compression and support due to the frequent fatigue and swelling in my lower legs..sadly, my varicose veins are mostly to blame. It wouldn't hurt to have a bit of help after a long run! Plus, they are so stinkin cute! Thanks for the opportuntiy!

Newly and Forever, Tamantha said...

I learned they have fuschia arm warmers...eek! Socks to match would be awesome!

I swear by an ICE COLD Diet Mtn Dew after a long, hot run on a summer day...of course, that also includes some healthy fluids and carb/protein snack..hehe...
