NYC Marathon PRO Compression #Giveaway

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.

I wear a certain style of shorts (Oiselle distance shorts are my current race day must-have), I have to have a hat on and I need my PRO Compression marathon socks.

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.

  1. I have only worn the sleeves before, and I wore them for the half that I ran last year. Have to say I LOVED them. I was told to wear the sleeves because I hadn’t been training in the socks. So, now I need the socks so I can train in them. ha! You can’t wear the sleeves for recovery, and I know how nice it would feel to keep those bad boys on after a race. I totally dig the orange color. I am just an orange fan!

    • I’ve actually never worn the sleeves, but all the guys in my running group prefer those. I am a marathon sock fan! I think you will love them — and orange rocks.

  2. You know I love PRO Compression. My orange socks have become my race socks (except for Fourth of July races, when I wear my USA socks). The color I want most that I don’t already have is powder blue.

    • Aw, you are going to be great! Wear many layers (to toss) to the pre-race area on staten island. Bring a roll of TP, food and a small towel to sit on too. If you have any other questions, let me know! And GOOD LUCK!

  3. Being new to the running scene (starting training and quite frankly running in May of this year) I am gearing up for my first half marathon running in Disney in January 2015! Now that my long runs are really becoming long runs (did my first 8 miles this past weekend!) I’m curious about the advantages of compressions socks, and would LOVE to give these a try! Plus, I love a fun new running accessory!
    Thanks for having such an awesome blog!

    • Welcome to the wild and crazy world of running! The socks help with blood flow and (for me anyway) help the legs not feel so tired. (which I love!)

      Best wishes on the upcoming 1/2. You will love running through the castle πŸ™‚ It’s an amazing moment.

      (And thank you!!)

  4. I LOVE Pro Compression! I’ve tried other brands but PC is still my fav as far as comfort and compression. And you can’t beat their prices, whether it’s the sock of the month or the great discount code you have that I’m going to use from now on. πŸ™‚

    I wear their marathon socks before and after long runs or speedwork. I have a pair of gray ones from last year that look like old-school athletic socks, and I literally just ordered a pair of black ones last night. So now that I’ve got the basics covered, I suppose I should branch out to something with more color. Pink would match my shoes, or I love purple. But I’ve also had my eye on the lime ones to maybe match all my Oiselle Fresh Green things… Ah! I can’t choose one color!

    • I love that I can always find a discount code for PRO, it really makes the socks affordable. $30 instead of $50? YES! I wear the purple ones most often (which is likely why they are starting to look pretty ragged) but lime is next on my must-have list! Good luck!

  5. Would love a pair of socks. I like to wear them for recovery. I need to try then out when running. Would love a pink pair!

  6. I’ve had a busy fall and could use some new compression wear. For the first time I did marathons a week apart and don’t plan on doing it again anytime soon. I’m just happy I didn’t injure myself because I really had to change up my stride during the second marathon. My thighs hurt from the start! I have a half marathon in less than two weeks and I am still trying to recover from last Sunday. I would choose the Black on Black or Stars and Stripes Marathon Socks.

    • Right? It really makes a difference πŸ™‚ Glad to hear that you love them too. Don’t forget the discount code BLG14 if you want to snag some more pairs!

  7. I’ve never used compression socks before, probably because they’re expensive. Winning a pair in any color would be a good way to try them out risk free. πŸ™‚

  8. I would love to win any PRO compression socks because I only own one pair and I love them. I love wearing them for recovery and being a stay at home mum I can’t always get all the running accessories I would like to buy!!

  9. I love compression sleeves and really want to give the full socks a try. I was just looking towards my spring races and realizing its time for staring my half marathon training plans. Need to get a good start to keep it going all winter for the early spring races, and these would definitely help. Love something nice a bright, though I also have always liked the throwback style pair that are white with blue and red stripes that ProCompression has.

  10. I would love to win some compression socks, great for the winter and help with my shins. Hope I win!! Would love to own a red pair.

  11. I use ProComression socks after my long runs and sometimes on my long runs–depending on how my legs are feeling, but always after. Training for Goofy in January and would love the lime or black with neon dots.

  12. My recovery socks are just about worn out and I’m so sad!
    I’d definitely go with powder blue. They’re pretty and match my new favorite marathon finishers shirt!

  13. I just love PROCompression socks! I’d absolutely love to win a pair because, well, you can never have too many!!
