A Few of my Favorite Things Giveaway

I think of myself as a pretty basic runner most of the time and I do like running because it seems like it’s the less is more mentality when it comes to workout gear. Clothes, a solid pair of running shoes, a pair of Compression Socks and of course, something to help with recovery. Throw it all in a bag and you’re good to go, Right?

I’m teaming up with Thera-Gesic so that you can win a gym bag filled with a few of my favorite things!

Theragesic Giveaway

Enter to win a few of my favorite things including Zensah Compression Socks, A $100 Gift Card to Dick’s Sporting Goods, A 6 month supply of Full Size Thera-gesic Samples and a pair of Saucony Running Shoes!

Lately, I’ve been picking up quite a few running related items at Dick’s Sporting Goods. They have exceptional clearance racks, carry a wide selection of clothes and I have a score card so when I spend money there I get points and after spending so much I get a gift certificate. So that’s why I picked a $100 Dick’s Sporting Goods Gift card as one of my favorite things! You can pick out whatever you’d like! New clothes always motivate me to get up and run and with spring approaching quickly, and it already being summer weather here, it’s the perfect time to pick up a few new clothes!

Saucony is my new go-to shoe and the winner will be receiving a pair of Saucony shoes! They haven’t given me any problems thus far and I am really happy with how well the shoe is holding up. Another favorite of mine!

Now that I’m trying to start running faster, I’m realizing that it is much harder on my legs and I find that I need to take extra special care of my legs to make sure they are ready to go again the next day. I’ve contemplated ART (Active Release Therapy) but have yet to get to a session… perhaps because I’m terrified and what I’m using now is working good. The two things that get me bouncing back somewhat quickly? Thera-gesic and Compression Socks. I normally shy away from compression socks, but my legs were feeling like lead so I have started wearing them on my longer runs. I love the Zensah compression socks because they have a padded bottom part of the sock and are also super tight AND soft. Then, before and after almost every run I rub Thera-gesic all over my calves. The one thing I do differently after a run is that I also have been icing my right knee. These three things are working together well because I haven’t run this fast in a long time and I am feeling almost 100% recovered for each run. I  believe this is super important because taking care of your body and making sure that you’re recovered helps keep injuries away. So a pair of compression socks and a 6 month supply of Thera-gesic is also included!

So, here’s how you can enter to win! The giveaway will last until Saturday, February 1st at 12:00 am.

    I love Dick’s Sporting Goods! As a Canadian, I’m always bummed that we don’t have a store remotely as good, and Dick’s doesn’t ship to Canada :( It’s always the first store I hit when I’m in the US…followed closely by Target of course ;)

    I haven’t used ART for my legs, but I have done it for my shoulder. I had/have a frozen shoulder (I had about 30% movement in my shoulder… so imagine not being bale to raise your hand, remove any kind of bra, or even wash hair properly) My ART guy got me to about 90% mobility over the course of 12 sessions. Typically it takes about 6 sessions, but I do like to excel at things. I cried a lot the first 3 sessions, but after that the I started gaining a lot of mobility back. So yay, Active Release Therapy.

    I started following you because you seemed to be fun and had a lot of good ideas. The
    products you like especially the Thera-gesic is the best. My family and I love going to
    Dicks to see what’s new. I’m checking out running shoes, clothes, compression socks, etc.
    My husband and daughter golf items. Dicks always seems to have what we need.

    I love your web page/twitter page. It is easy to follow and understand. Keep up the excellent
    work!! You got a fan here in NC!!
