They kindly sent me a Knee wrap to TEST. I am not a fan of ice baths but I do need to take care of my Left Knee (2 surgeries in college). This wrap is AWESOME!! What an upgrade from the bag of peas. I love that I can tighten then straps and feel the cold hiting my target sore spots. ActiveWrap HERE also carry products for Foot & Ankle, Back, Wrist, Shoulder and Elbow. I have not used the pack for heat yet but I am sure I will love that too. Tall Mom Tested Battle Approved.
CEP Compression Socks HERE:
CEP Running O2 Sportsocks maximize muscle oxygenation and boost energy with CEP's unparalleled scientifically optimized ultimate compression technology for all-day benefits. You’ll run with less effort, increased speed, decreased recovery time, reduced fatigue and optimized performance.
The days of wearing socks “solely” to protect feet from blistering are over. CEP compression sportsocks are the first truly functional compression sport socks with a patented pressure flow technology that provide a scientifically proven increase in blood circulation and a consequent increase in performance. In addition to blister prevention, CEP socks provide more oxygen, more energy, an improved metabolization of lactic acid, and faster recovery so you can return to training quicker than ever.
I wore these socks on a 20 miler and 23 miler and my legs felt great!! I had some calf cramping and the tightness of the compression gave me a little extra stability and comfort. The cushion in the toe and heel is nice for longer runs. These socks are great for recovery but also fantastic for on the run. With fun colors like Pink, Black and Green you can have some fun. I put these in the wash but did not dry them and have help up great!! CEP also carries compression sleeves if you cant give up that favorite pair of socks, but want some compression. My only complaint is the Price, there are other products on the market with a lower price point. Tall Mom Tested Battle Approved.
Sof Sole CoolMax Trainer Socks HERE:
Seamless toe moisture management for comfort
- Deep heel pocket minimizes movement and friction

Sof Sole HERE sent me insoles to test but I am waiting until after Boston. But I have to tell you about these socks. I am in LOVE!! These socks are soft, breathable, light weight and just high enough to land above my shoe. The best part is I feel I could wear the socks during any season, which makes them an asset to my running wardrobe. Tall Mom Tested Battle Approved.
