My quest for the best running socks

22 May

It’s all about the gear. I may have used that obsession with the right gear to justify some extensive purchases and many a trial of products but none more than running socks.

Your feet are bearing the brunt of your entire body in motion pounding the pavement. The least you can do is offer them the best comfort and technology out there.

In all the socks I’ve tried – including years of Nike running, adidas, and even some off brands from running specialty shops THE BEST RUNNING SOCK is the Nike Dri-Fit Elite Cushion No-Show.

Product details below but these are the game changers friends.

The Nike Dri-FIT Elite Cushion No-Show Running Socks are made with sweat-wicking fabric in a design tailored specifically to women. Three levels of cushioning reduce impact while built-in arch support wraps the foot for a snug, athletic fit.

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

7 Dec

That’s right friends this was the weekend that finally solidified it for me – the holiday season is upon us. The weather has turned and stayed quite crisp and cold. The fog and rain has moved on in. It is officially December and I can kiss sunshine and coat-less temps good bye. 

Besides the weather changes I can now look at my calendar and see my weekends/nights full of parties, dinners, gift exchanges and shenanigans. But mostly I know it’s the holiday season because I received my first Christmas card this weekend and my first plate of homemade holiday treats – thanks Blondie. 

I’m not one of those people who bust full force into the holiday decorations the day after Thanksgiving, nor am I one to blast the all Christmas music 24/7 station (I have been known to play some select holiday music so I’m not a grinch). If anything the holidays make me happy because I get to see so many of my friends at various gatherings and being busy is always a good thing.

Although now the anxiety to get all my holiday shopping done is starting to set in. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some shopping, but shopping and deadlines should never be mixed.

Anyone have great gift ideas for parents? I feel like mine have everything they need already…help!
