my favorite things:::: giveaway #3

so here's the last giveaway in my 'marathon must haves".... the pro compression marathon sock.


i love them for running:

i love them for recovery:

riley even loves them:

pro compression was the third compression company that i tried, and luckily, the third time was a charm! :) i have no reason to look any further!

how i use pro compression::::

  • running
  • recovery
  • i sleep in them the night before long runs to make sure my legs are fresh
  • as my mid week runs got longer i even wore them to work so my legs would be ready to run when i got home... then i noticed how much they helped [i'm on my feet for 10.5 hours straight] so now i wear them to work a couple a times a week!
what sets them apart::::
  • higher quality materials [helps with comfort and also great moisture control]
  • great compression level [mmHg 22-26]
  • great colors and fun prints
  • they're constantly working and finding ways to improve their products
  • i have larger calves and i like that while these socks offer great compression, they don't cut off my circulation right below my knee
  • they're made in the USA
  • i know first hand that their customer service is amazing. seriously. timely, considerate, attentive, and really a pleasure to work with. 
pro compression has generously offered up a pair of marathon socks to one of my readers! you can gain entries by:
  • checking out their website and telling me what color you'd choose.
  • follow pro compression on twitter
  • tweet about the giveaway ( include @courtneymelson and @procompression)
FYI::::
pro compression also does a sock of the month and check out this month's socks!!!
how cute are these? you can use the code SOM3 to get 40% off [it works for calf sleeves too!]


leave me a comment for each entry. this giveaway will end at midnight [est] on tuesday march 5th. 
pro compression is providing one pair of marathon socks to the winner, i purchased my own. all opinions are my own.

  48. Courtney, you passed me on the last out and back at the race yesterday. I can't believe how much harder the second half was compared to the first half. They should have a shirt that says "26.2 miles in 26.2 deg weather with 26.2 mph winds". What a day!
    Oh, if I were chosen, I'd like the marathon orange compression socks--Orange is my "power color" for the year!
