I am running the Chicago half marathon again this year (as well as the Chicago full Marathon!), only i took over and am leading the entire charity team, because i am a
The amazing folks at Pro-Compression have donated two pairs of their marathon socks to help raise some money for Team Run for HD! What can i say about Pro-Compression that i haven't already? You know i love them - i have three pairs (so far...) I started wearing them as an extra layer during my brutal winter training, but i realized how much they help me run longer and recover faster. (After i ran my first half marathon i couldn't run for a week. 10 days ago i ran a 20 miler, and the next day went back out for more!) I have no proof that compression socks make you a better runner - i'm not a doctor. or a scientist. Its even debatable if i can really call myself a "runner" but they do make you look cool, they are WAY easier to get on and off then other compression socks, they have fun colors, and they make me feel like a better runner; thats all that matters to me!**
**It's important that you know Pro-Compression does not sponsor me in anyway. I actually just really like their products, and they were nice enough to help out with this charity!
So, thanks to Eric at Pro-Compression, i have not one, but TWO pairs of compression socks (which retail for $50.00 each) to raffle off:
|Both are size S/M - one is hot pink, one is black. Personally, i want the black pair!|
My charity page for donations is HERE. The two winners will be announced Monday morning, so you have until Sunday night to donate and tell all your friends!!
**Also, if you have any desire to run the Chicago Half Marathon with us, or are curious about what else we are doing to fundraise/raise awareness please visit www.TeamRunforHD.com. We're kind of a big deal.
