sock love. [Thirty48 ambassador program].

21 Feb

I know, I know, I haven’t been blogging so much lately.  Not sure why that is — maybe I’m going through a slump where I don’t think I’m doing much that’s blog-worthy? Or my training is sort of monotonous because the LA Marathon is coming up? And law school is well…law school?

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I got an amazing opportunity to work with a new, southern CA sock brand, Thirty48.  I first heard about them through my friend Kristina. She’s a seriously speedy runner so I thought hey, if they’re good enough for her…

For the next six months, we’ll be working together — I’ll be sporting Thirty48 gear and writing about it, and they’ll be sending me gear and essentially sponsoring me as I work toward some of my 2014 New Year’s resolutions.  Remember those?

Anyway, I met with the marketing team at Thirty48 and we went over some of my goals (PR in the full marathon, injury prevention, running smart) and it seemed like a perfect fit.

A few days after I met with Thirty48, I ran 20 miles in my new compression sleeves, as well as the socks.  These are now my favorite compression sleeves — I like just how snug they are and that they’re super long — they go almost all of the way up to my knee.  After the run, (20 freakin’ miles!)  I didn’t have a single blister or weird toe ailment.  The only lingering pain I had was a slight soreness on the top of my foot, which I think is indicative of it being time for new shoes (new Brooks Addictions are on their way — just in time for me to put 40-50 miles on them before the marathon).

Anyway,  I’m excited about tackling my goals with Thirty48’s help (although not totally sure they can teach me to surf or help me read more for leisure this year — but who knows).

Have you checked out Thirty48?
