All opinions are mine, ProCompression sent me a pair of Marathon Socks to review
Being a relatively “new” runner I am finally learning the joys and benefits of compression gear! I’m not ashamed to say that I begged the folks at ProCompression to send me a pair of socks to try out. To my amazement they not only agreed, but they also offered to let me give away a pair to ONE lucky reader!
Now the idea of compression gear is to increase blood flow, reduce muscle fatigue and speed recovery. I can honestly tell you that my ONLY complaint with these is that I only own ONE PAIR!!! I’m a pretty big girl, I wear a size 12 shoe and my calves measure about 15 inches around, so when they said they were sending me a S/M I was doubtful that they’d fit. I was pleasantly surprised. They hugged my calves perfectly and didn’t strangle my toes! So far my longest run in them is 6 miles, but with marathon training in full swing, I can assure you they’ll be getting loads of miles logged!
I’ve seen a few posts where my fellow runners have boasted wearing their ProCompression socks in ‘real life’ so I figured I would give it a shot too- And to be honest, I was again impressed. In my job I’m at a desk for the majority of my day so I do worry about poor circulation. I always feel like my legs have more energy when I’m rockin’ these bad boys!
Now it’s your turn! Go enter to begin enjoying the wonderful benefits of compression!
