While I was blog hopping late the other night (which is what all blogging runners do, right?) I hoped down through my ever increasing google reader list and came across Lesley at Racing It Off.
She is currently hosting a CEP Compression giveaway.
This got me thinking.
I own two pair of compression socks and a pair of compression shorts.
I almost always wear my CEP Compression and not the other ones I have since I truly feel the CEP Compression is a superior product.
Those beautiful pink socks are on my feet from the moment I step out of the shower post workout until I step back into the shower the next morning. I have worn them to work all day in the days following my ultra races. They have been with me in VA, TN, PA and soon they will join me at the beach. They have gone on training runs, picnics, movies and out for dinner.
It's a lot to ask out of a little pair of socks.
Maybe I put too much faith into those little socks.
But it is hard to deny results.
I have been able to run every day for the past 417 days.
I ran after a PR setting trail 50k followed by my second best PR trail 50k followed by a fabulous finish in my first trail 50 miler. Not to mention after all the shorter races sprinkled in between.
Every day I ran.
Every evening I slip into my socks and some nights shorts too with tired legs and I wake up ready to go.
It is a burden to place on one little pair of socks.
That's why I need another pair.
CEP...I'm just sayin'
