Teton Dam Marathon Review

On the 2nd of June, I woke up at 4am to make a 3 hour drive to eastern Idaho for the Teton Dam Marathon. I did the 5K.

Did I mention I woke up at 4am to make a 3 hour drive. Yeah, not the best idea for legs to be in PR shape. My leggies were stiff and at 1100 more feet of elevation then at home, it was a slow trot for sure. No PR attempt this trot, that's for sure.

I woke up at 4am (my normal wake up time is 8am - 10am depending on the day) so that early is  painful. I had everything all packed and ready the evening before- brekky, post-race clothes, snacks, and a full tank of gas for the long drive. All I had to do was make coffee and head out. I didn't even brush my teeth before I left. Coffee first.

The drive was nice and not a lot of traffic for a Saturday morning. I don't know the last time I have been to Rexburg, but it was easy to find the race start. I thought the race started at 8am, but that was the 10K. The 5K started at 8:30am and I got there to get my bib at …

ProCompression Review and Giveaway

I am a huge fan of compression socks. And I am a huge fan of ProCompression socks! When I got word that I could share the greatness of ProCompression with all of you again, I jumped all over it!

I have been wearing them since 2012 - so long ago!

I wear these while running, working out, recovering after runs, and while I am on my feet for long periods of time. Most recently was while working 16 hour days in Alaska this summer. My leggies were swollen standing on concrete for that long of time and with my ProCompression, they actually were way less swollen. (Hello - Compression socks! True graduated compression promotes circulation by pushing fluid up from your feet and ankles to toward your knees. This design also helps reduce swelling and inflammation while providing critical support to muscles and tendons. I only brought one pair with me - total mistake! I wore my socks for 3-4 days at a time before washing. I NEEDED these socks and gladly suffered through the lack of washing them for my leggie comfort!
