The Scoot chicks love fashion! But we also love function. We are particularly pickled when the two come together.
As many of you know, we are huge fans of PRO Compression marathon socks. We run in them, we recover in them, we shop in them too!
Meri, with pals, sports her pink marathon socks at a recent 5K

whoot whoot! never used these (yet) but every runner i know raves about them!!
Obviously, I’m a huge fan! 🙂 They feel great
Training for Wine and DIne! I need to try these.
Awesome! Your legs will be happy!
Just finished a marathon this past weekend and was able to snag a PR even though I wasn’t feeling it in the days leading up to the run. I have my first Ultra scheduled this fall, the JFK 50. I’ve use compression with success and ProCompression is one of the brands.
Congratulations on your PR Jeffrey! That’s pretty darn awesome!
Love my PRO Compression socks! I where them whenever my calves &/or shins are bothering me.
That’s training smart! What colors are your faves?
All of them! LOL! I have the hot pink socks and the purple sleeves.
haha! I love it!
I love my ProCompression socks. I’m training for the Tower 10 Miler, Dopey, Tink and Princess and I wear my socks for running and my sleeves for recovery. Best. Socks. Ever!
You have a fabulous race schedule lined up! And a great compression stategy 🙂 Best wishes!
I love my compression socks! I wear them anything I have a hard leg workout and need some help recovering… and after my half marathons. I would love to have a pair set aside for while I’m running as well 🙂
I’m with you Amber! I like using them for recovery as well – though I do run in them too.
I have a pair of purple Compression socks. I get compliments all the time! Currently training for Rock n Roll St. Louis half marathon on Oct 27
The purples are my fave as well- they really pop with my bright orange sneakers! Good luck in your half next month!
I see these all over the blogging world. I love the colors and would love to rock a pair. I’m training for the NYCM with Victoria! 🙂
YEAH! Fingers and toes crossed for the win! And I’m so excited to be running with you in NYC! (OK, well, behind you, but you know what I mean!) xo
I LOVE PROCompression! Only have black currently, but would love some BRIGHT colored Marathon Socks!!
oh yes! Brightly colored marathon socks are a MUST! I have red, pink and purple. I really want an orange pair myself!
I’m training for the Empire half marathon in Syracuse on 10/20. And wine and dine! I have only worn my pro compression socks once. But they helped.
Good luck on both of your upcoming races! Did you wear your socks for the run or for recovery? (just curious!)
It was for recovery. I hopped right in a car after the race for 40 minutes. Need to try them on a run.
I love them for recovery as well! Esp when taking a long car ride after a long run!
Currently “training” for the Cooper Norcross Run the Bridge 10K in Camden in November. Just keeping up my normal run schedule after the half to keep me in shape for that one. Should feel “nice” after the half! Ran in my first compression sleeves training for the half and LOVED them. Need some socks now and some color to boot! Would love to win a pair!
I love love love that 10K! I sadly can’t do it this year because its the same day as NYC… but I’ll be back! Good luck and I know you will rock it! And YES! You need color! There are lots of bright colors to choose from (and did you see the discount code?)
This week, I’m recovering from the Rochester Half Marathon (where I wore my orange PROCompression socks). Next week I’ll start training for a to-be-determined marathon in February. I wear PROCompression socks for just about every run: trainer lows for short runs, marathon socks for long runs.
I love that it took me until mile 6 to notice you were even wearing your PRO compression socks. Yeah…. but am so glad they are working for you! Now we just need to find you a Marathon!
Compression socks ended up giving me blisters when I ran long distances with them (sad face), but they’re awesome for recovery! I’m thinking maybe sleeves would be a good option.
My guy friends swear by the sleeves over the socks. I’ve not tried the sleeves but they said the same thing xo
Training for Space Coast Marathon! I have work compression socks in a majority of my marathons 🙂
Hooray! Good luck with the Space Coast Krissy! Looking forward to seeing you NEXT WEEK!
I’m training for the Savannah Rock ‘n Roll half marathon!! I use compression on my long runs and for recovery. 🙂
Excellent! Best wishes on your upcoming race – I’ve heard wonderful things about Savannah! That’s a new RnR race, right?
oh I don’t have any but a couple friend’s have these and swear by them personally I think compression any thing feels better!
Agreed! Good luck to you. 🙂
I run in them for my long runs but I did wear a pair home from Disneyland and my legs felt awesome after that so I might start wearing them for both!!
I have a habit of wearing them during but not after. Honestly though, I’m going to be in a very long car ride after Wine & Dine so I’m thinking they’ll be necessary for recovery. And lots of rest stops. 😉
I have never used any yet but I would love to! We are flying home after a race in November and I think they would be very helpful!
Yes! I know that many people wear them on planes (who aren’t runners) too.
I have worn Pro Compression sleeves before for recovery – but never during a race. I’m considering giving this a try soon, though! I’ll be starting to training for a Half Marathon in December shortly and they’d be great to have!
Nice! I tested it out first with a 10k to make sure I liked running in them before I committed to longer distances. A 5k would do too
I have never worn any, but I ran a marathon two weeks ago and I would’ve LOVED some! I’m not training for anything specific right now, but come February, I’ll start training for my second marathon! 🙂
I really can’t say enough about how great they are to wear for recovery after your long runs.
And congrats on your marathon! Which one did you run?
I like to wear procompression for recovery and days that I will be on my feet a lot at work (like today!). Currently I am training for a November marathon, so my socks are getting a lot of use!
Excellent! How is training coming along for your marathon? And which one are you running?
ProCompression are my favorite socks in the whole wide world! I have 3 pair and wear them on every run!
Love the enthusiasm! What color pair is next on your wish list?
I am new to the compression world (training for my 1st FULL) but so far RECOVERY!
I could tell a difference immediately
It makes a huge difference, right? And hooray for your first full! Which one are you running?
Rock and Roll New Orleans in Feb but a little concerned right now because this past month I ran over a 100 miles in shoes that were too small & this week I’ve been having throbbing pain in the middle/bottom of my foot. Someone told me it’s probably an inflamed nerve to ice/roll it…. I’m supposed to do a training run tomorrow but don’t want to make it worse. Hopefully it’s nothing more serious. I got refitted in bigger running shoes a couple days ago…
I would definitely take tomorrow off if there’s pain and head then use those new shoe when you feel good enough to hit the road again! I loved RnR New Orleans- I ran the inaugural race! Super flat course but watch those potholes on esplanade!
I got an appointment in with a great doctor before the weekend and discovered I have a Mild Stress Fracture. My new kicks are temporarily replaced with a Boot on my right foot for the next 6-8 weeks. No more than 6 miles of running distance wise. Normally they tell you no running but she knows I want to stay active so they will re-xray me in two weeks to check the bone. What caused it? Various reasons: too tight of shoes, the fall I experienced last Sunday at mile 8 of 14 and pushing myself past the 10% rule. (Not to increase your distance more than 10% week to week) sigh.. At least it happened early in my training.
OH NO! I hope you recover quickly!
I’m training for Rock n Roll San Jose and Nike Women’s Half!
Ooh! That RnR race is soon, right? Good luck at both events!
I hear great things about compression socks but have never run or recovered in them…maybe if I win, I will try them in my next race….
Good luck! They feel different, but a good different 😉
I just ran my first half marathon, and so much of my training was done wearing PRO Compression socks. I LOVED them and the benefits they offered. Now I’ll be sporting them as a train for half #2!
First of all, congratulations on your first half! That’s a huge accomplishment! And I’m so with you, compression socks feel fantastic
I haven’t used pro compression but would love to try it! I am training for the Enchanted 10k at Disney in February!
Best wishes on the giveaway and your upcoming race!
I am currently finishing up my training for the 13.1 Marathon Series for Atlanta. I love rocking my socks for recovery. 🙂
Best wishes on your upcoming race!
I have never worn them before but I would probably use them for recovery. Thank you!
Good luck with the giveaway!
I was training for Tough Mudder Kansas, but that was last Saturday. Now I’m still working on the Nebraska Spartan Sprint in 2 1/2 weeks. Beyond that I’m training for a 21 mile trail run put on by the G.O.A.T.z at the end of October.
I haven’t tried ProCompression yet.
Oh man! That’s hard core! Good luck with those upcoming races, Cecil!
I’m hoping to run my 1st marathon next year and possibly even try to tackle a 50k ultra the year after. Maybe at the end of next year if I can find (and do) a marathon in Spring.
That’s fantastic! Best wishes!
I have a half marathon in two weeks! I love wearing compression after a long run to get my legs back to normal.
A runner after my own heart! That’s such a good way to put it 😉 good luck on your half!
I am training for the space coast half marathon in December. I love to rock the Pro Compression socks & use them for training & recovery
Very cool! The Space Coast series sounds so neat – do you plan to do more as the series moves forward?
I love mine!! Wear them for anything over 6!!
Fantastic! Good luck with the giveaway!
I’m training for MCM (one more month!). I love Pro Compression socks for recovery!
Hooray for Marine Corps Marathon, Lisa! Good luck- it’s supposed to be an amazing event! 🙂
I am training for a half marathon. I really need to try compression socks,I think they would help with my recovery.
I wear compression sleeves for running because I’m committed to my Injinji socks (haha) and compression socks for recovery 🙂
Understandably- those injini socks are pretty fun! You get the same benefit with the sleeves and get to Rock your fave socks! Winning!
Currently training for the St. Jude Half in Memphis in December. I’ve worn my ProCompression socks on some long runs in the winter months & definitely wear them for recovery. I rocked my Shamrock socks during a Half I ran on St. Patrick’s Day…got quite a few looks!
I love It! Would love to see a pic of your and the shamrock Socks! Good luck at the half
I’m training for the Chicago Marathon! I rock Pro Compression every day!!
What an incredible race, enjoy every moment!
I am getting my endurance up and then will run a 5K. Lame compared to all these runner posts! But it’s progress not perfection right?! I’ve never tried Pro Compression but hear great reviews, I would love to try! Thanks!
Hooray for your 5k! It’s definitely not a contest between each other here, just an effort to better yourself. And the 5k is a great distance – you’re doing so much more than so many people do. Keep up the great work!
Training for a relay race and Spartan!
Good luck at both events!
I’m currently training for life 😉 Not signed up for any races as of now, but training to get back in shape after injury this spring and then a major dip in motivation. Getting ready to get out racing again very soon, miss it! I use ProCompression or Zensah socks/sleeves mostly for recovery. Love ’em!
I love that phrase, “training for life.” I may borrow it 😉 good luck darling! Kisses!
I’m currently training for the future 😉 Not signed up for any races as of now, but training to get back in shape after injury this spring and then a major dip in motivation. Getting ready to get out racing again very soon, miss it! I use ProCompression or Zensah socks/sleeves mostly for recovery. Love ’em!
I’ve never tried compression socks but I really want to! I think I might use that code to get a pair!
Yes! Sharing is caring! It knocks about $20 off and takes care of shipping. It’s a pretty good deal!
Congrats on your PR! My fall is scheduled for a number of “firsts” – I’m training for my first ten miler, the Army Ten Miler, and my first half marathon – Richmond. I wear PROCompression socks mainly after long runs and they’re amazing – but I’m trying them out to wear during a long run to see if it has an effect. If it doesn’t, no matter – they’re still AMAZING for recovery!
Thanks so much! Sunday was a great day! 🙂 It sounds like you have a busy fall ahead of you! Best wishes on the upcoming races — and with the giveaway! When you try the socks out on a run, start with a shorter distance to see what you think (like 5 miles?)
i tried 4 miles last night – can’t say i noticed a significant different but it certainly didn’t hurt! if nothing else i love them for recovery so the more pairs the merrier!!
Training for WDW Marathon. Just started to use compression socks for recovery between runs.
That’s a great race! It’s like a big running party – best wishes
Thanks again. My first time doing it, and my first time ever going there. Will be an eye opening experience for sure!
It’s a great time for sure! I hope you have a great trip!
Currently training for the Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon! And yes, I love love LOVE my PROCompression socks. Actually slept in them last night because my legs hurt so bad. Woke up feeling refreshed and ready to run!
You know your PROCompression gear Tanya! I never thought of sleeping in them. Good luck with the mini marathon!
Popeye told me the other day I just need to start telling people I’m training for life since I have a pretty full race calendar right now. Next up- Marine Corps Marathon where those chevron socks would look awesome 😉
I like that phrase a lot! And yes, you are one busy bee. MCM is coming up soon! You’ll be great and YES, those socks would look smashing on you! How is training coming along?
I’m training for the Macau Marathon. I love my PRO Compression socks!
Oh wow – just looked the Macau Marathon up since I was unfamiliar with it. China! That’s pretty awesome! Best of luck in your training and with the giveaway.
Training for the Philadelphia Marathon! Always love to rock a new pair of PRO compression socks!
Philly is such a great course. I hope you have an incredible race! And best wishes on the giveaway!
So far I’ve only tried another brand of compression sleeves – never socks.
I’ve tried a couple of different kinds of compression socks but none are as tight as the PRO Compression ones! Haven’t tried sleeves yet – what do you think of them?
I’ve never work PROcompression, but I’ve heard really great things about them! I ran a half marathon last weekend and have another in a month and I’m definitely going to be giving compression a try – I had wicked shin splints and I’m hoping it doesn’t happen again!
Shin splints are the worst! I haven’t had the issue since wearing the compression socks, maybe they’d work for you too! Which half are you running next month?
I love pro compression! They’re an essential piece of gear in my marathon training arsenal. I’m running Twin Cities next week!
I’ve heard such good things about Twin Cities! Have a fantastic race.
My goal race is the 2014 Chevron Houston Marathon, which will be my first 26.2; no I have never compression, but I’m thinking it may help my ankles? willing to try, if I win 🙂
Good luck in Houston and with the giveaway!
I’ve worn the Pro Compression socks for recovery, though I did wear them during my most recent 5k, and it was my best time! Currently training for my next 5k in December.
Nice job on the 5K PR! Well done 🙂
Took almost 12 mins off my time in a half in just two weeks by just adding procompression.
That’s phenomenal! Congratulations!
I’m not training for a particular race but just working on improving my 5k pacing. I have a pair of pro compression socks and love them.
Excellent 🙂 They are pretty snappy. What’s your color of choice?
I would love to have a pair of socks to recover in, race in, and especially shop in. 😀
Oh and I am currently training for a 5k, since I am a newbie runner so no compression socks yet. 😀
haha, I totally shop in them! (and go to the salon, as you can see above)! I wore them to a farmer’s market recently – got some odd looks but my legs were thrilled!
I love PRO Compression! I just ordered a set of purple calf sleeves. 🙂 I use them for recovery, I haven’t run in them yet. My long term training is for the Asheville Marathon in March, but I have a 12k in two weeks, and a half in a month. 🙂
Purple is a great color! And hooray! Sounds like you have a great schedule coming up! Best wishes as you train
I’m currently building my running base up to train for my 2nd marathon in May. I’ve never tried PRO Compression, but want to.
Perfect timing then, eh? And don’t forget the discount code in the post! 40% off is a chunk! Good luck with your second marathon!
I love my compression socks for recovery. Would love a pair of sleeves so I can still sport my flip flops. Haven’t tried running in them yet.
I really would like a pair of sleeves myself too. I love the flip flop idea 🙂
My first half is on Sunday so I’ve been training for that. Love Pro Compression!
Exciting! Good luck on Sunday! Which race will you be running?
Rock n Roll in Cleveland!
I’m training for the WDW full marathon but have lots of races before then. Up next..Tower of Terror 10 miler this weekend! And I have a pair of Pro Compression socks that I LOVE putting on after a race. I’d love another pair!
(Side note: I liked the facebook pages from my running page, Once Upon a Run, not from my personal page which you have to use to log into rafflecopter)
I hope I will see you down in Florida this weekend as I’ll be running the Tower 10-miler too! And of course I packed my PRO Compression socks to go along with my costume! Good luck this weekend, and as your train for WDW Marathon! Have you run it before?
I wear them for recovery like Vic!
Great minds think alike!! 🙂
training for the BAA Half!
Good luck Jonathan! I hope it goes smoothly, post-injury
I am training for my first marathon and I have used pro compression sleeves and love them! Carie Vercelli
Awesome! Which marathon are you training for? Best of luck, Carie!
Love my pro compression socks so much I bought the #runchat compression socks for my 24HR endurance race so I would have an extra pair AND so I could make sure everyone knew I was a #runbassador
I love my ProCompressions so much! I never thought I’d pay so much for socks though – PS well worth it for anyone on the fence!
