PRO Compression Review & Giveaway

I'm so happy to share this giveaway with you! I was sent a pair of marathon socks from PRO Compression to review. A lot of people I follow on Twitter and Facebook swear by them, so I was excited to get a chance to try them out for myself. 

You might be wondering, why compression? Well according to the PRO Compression website, the benefits include improved blood flow, stability, and muscles are able to be replenished with fresh oxygen and nutrients to reduce soreness. They sound magical, don't they?

I never wear any type of compression sleeve or sock when I run. I choose to use them for recovery after a run. After a 13 mile training run, I busted out my new PRO Compression Marathon Sock. 

Whoa...getting them on was a workout itself! I was practically breaking out a sweat. Don't worry though, they are supposed to fit snug. 
Now I will say this about sizing....the pair I got (size S/M) was too small. Luckily I picked up another pair at the Disneyland Half expo and I went up a size (to the L/XL). This was a much better fit for me. 

After my training run, my legs felt amazing. There wasn't any soreness or tightness. Nothing was hurting. I have since worn them after both a 15 mile run and a 2o mile run. I got the same results...great feeling legs. 
I'm a believer of the magic of PRO Compression socks! And now you can be too! You can get 40% off using code "PCBLG" or the awesome peeps at PRO Compression are giving away one pair of marathon socks to one of my followers! Will it be you? Good luck!
PRO Compression provided me with a complimentary pair of socks to review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
