Thank you, every single one of you.
Sometime ago, I won some amazing products by participating in bloggers' online giveaways. And today, I finally got the chance to sit down and write some reviews about what I felt about those products.
First up is Chill Towel that I won from Running Diva Mom. (Running Diva Mom is awesome. Along with the package, she sends a sweet note encouraging me and wishing my well on my training.) I have been dying to rip apart that packaging and use it but refrained because I want to put it to "good use," which in my books is running a race. I signed up for a race and used it after my Peach Festival 5K and it did provide some instant relief from heat.
Next up is Zensah Compression Socks. I won this fabulous pink socks from SkinnyRunner and I have been wearing it for a while now, trying to decide how I really felt about this product.
What the company said: The Zensah Compression Sock incorporates ProGrade Compression Technology. Developed with the optimal amount of compression to increase oxygen blood flow which can enhance an athlete's performance. Only compression sock to incorporate arch support which allows your legs to last longer. Engineered using seamless technology which ensures superior comfort. Graduated compression provides muscle support, increases circulation and reduces edema when traveling. Zensah Fabric is both anti-microbial, and thermo-regulating which keeps your legs cool in hot weather and comfortable in cold weather. Great for racing, recovery and traveling. The number one compression sock for runners, triathletes, and world travelers. Get fresh legs!
What I thought: I love the pink! I love the pink! It is kinda cushiony so that's a point for comfort. Nope, I don't think it stink (but I have been just wearing it around the house). When I wear it, it pulls up until the lower part of my knee. Compression wise, I think I feel it needs a tad more compression. I have a pair of el-cheapo one from Wal-mart (less than $5 and in an ugly old man black) and the el-cheapo one compress a little more than this hot pink one. Compression wise, I like my ugly old man's pair. Cute factor wise, I like my Zensah pair.
All right folks. Have a Happy 4th. I am going to try and get a run in later this evening. Maybe 4 miles. :)
