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 …

Soxxy Compression Sox Review

I was contacted by Soxxy Compression Sox recently about trying some of their new compression sockies. With the month of post-weightloss-challenge recovery and ALL the roadtrips I've been able to do guilt-free during this time; I am all about the compression socks. 

From the website-
Sarah Stabile is part inventor, entrepreneur and marketer. In 2010, she pulled out her glue gun and began drawing X’s and O’s on the inside top rim of her sox in order to prevent them from slipping. After two years of global development and sourcing, Sarah is proud to introduce the coolest non-slip sox on the planet. From stripes, spots and metallics in a variety of colors – Soxxy is changing-up this once dull category by combining high fashion with utilitarian function.
I really do like the prints available. I picked the Herringbone because it matches one of my favorite skirts.

The socks are really nice. The fabric has a nice feel to them. They don't look like grandma compression socks and they don't look like standard sport compression either. These can be worn to work and look like they are made for the office. Perfect for when you have to go back to work a Monday after a Saturday marathon! They are snug but not restricting.
Compression Gradient is nice for recovery and to prevent DVT - 20-30 mm HG.

I totally recommend these. They feel and look great. The top of the sock does not cut into your leg as some other brands that I have worn do - especially if you wear them over night! I really can't say enough about how great these feel!
