One year ago, I was anxiously awaiting my chance to run 26.2 miles through New York City’s five boroughs.
The race remains one of my favorites – not only because it’s my standing marathon PR, nor because I was blown away by the support from the crowd, friends and other racers.
I knew I had given my all. And that meant more than anything.
A big part of a successful marathon day for me, is knowing what food, clothes and routines work for me.
The socks rock.
I’ve been running and racing in PRO’s marathon socks for over a year, well before I became a brand ambassador several month ago. The sock help keep the blood flow in my legs. I wear them to race, on my longer training runs and for recovery after long runs – and hoo boy, do marathons count!
In short, my legs feel better. And when I feel well, I run well.
In this week’s marathon excitement — and as I ramp up to run Philly in a few weeks – I’m giving away one pair of PRO Compression marathon socks or sleeves (winner’s choice).
The giveaway ends at at the stroke of midnight on NYC MARATHON DAY (11/2). Click on the above pic to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway!
