I love Wednesdays. Not only is the work week halfway over, but you can hump anything or anyone you want today without getting the stink eye, and more importantly, today is the day you can win a pretty saweet giveaway!
Once upon a time, Kristin modeled her PRO Compression socks on her blog every single day. Okay, she still does, but my point here is that I became increasingly curious about the socks, their benefits, and if they actually helped. I had been hemming and hawing about purchasing a pair, but I just couldn’t break down and spend so much on ONE pair of socks. I mean, if I still lived at home and didn’t have to pay rent or buy food, then I’d be throwing money left and right, but I stayed strong for a long, long time.
And then, magic happened. Jeff, over at PRO Compression offered to give me a pair to review, and has generously allowed one lucky Running on Peanut Butter reader to win a pair themselves!
You can be like me and where them to work.
Or in your yard.
Better yet, in bed with your running shoes.
Or after 16 hour work days in Denver.
After 16 hour work days in Denver, these bad boys were my best friend! I slept in these all 3 nights, and they really helped in recovering from standing all day and night. Each morning I woke up ready to go and wasn’t even sore.
I typically sleep in these almost every night so that I wake up ready to tackle my morning run and workout.
Jeff is amazing and I’m going to try and steal his heart because he did something amazing. He is smart and a genius. He sent me socks in my favorite shade of pink… andddddd the footing is grey and lime green, which match my running shoes perfectly.
Some of you might be asking, “what are compression socks?” Well, PRO Compression socks are designed to deliver maximum comfort and expedites recovery, something that most of us athletes need with our crazy workouts. By wearing a pair of PRO Compression socks, you can improve vascular flow and stability in your lower extremities. Overall, they will help you perform better.
I wondered if this was more of a placebo effect type of product, but I was pleasantly surprised to realize that these fellas are talking the talk and walking the walk.
PRO Compression started as a sock line for golfers, since they have to walk 18 holes and stand around all day hitting a tiny white ball, but the product line has grown greatly. There are marathon socks, which is what I have and what you can win. Other styles include the “racer,” which is more of a crew sock, calve sleeves, low rise, and also normal ankle socks? I need to get better about sock terminology. If I’m not speaking English, just check out their product page.
