I haven’t exactly been timely here – so sorry!
I have been very busy and not busy. Things get so busy that I don’t have time to blog and then when I finally have a free minute, I don’t exactly want to blog – I want to spend that time resting, having fun, spending time with family and friends. A bunch of the SweatPink ambassadors were discussing this online yesterday and it was really nice to see that I wasn’t alone on this. Some were thinking of stepping away both briefly and permanently. That said, I really enjoy blogging and don’t want to abandon it completely. You’re not getting rid of me and my corner of the interwebs anytime soon!!
Training is ongoing. I’ve been really bad about my long runs. I don’t know what it is. I’ve been good about running mid-week but when it comes to the weekends… sigh. I’ve been bad. I need to get my act together. The marathon is 16 weeks away!!! Eeek!
One of the most important things when it comes to training are the right clothes – if you’re not wearing the right clothes, from sports bras to pants, etc., you can enter the uncomfortable land of chafing and blisters and even lost toenails. And that is no fun, promise.
For me, I can deal with a little sports bra chafe, but once my feet are beaten up, I am done. In the Heartbreak Half, I had to deal with nasty blisters and had to get my feet taped at mile 12. People always equate blisters with poor shoes. And that’s valid. But people tend to forget about the importance of good socks!
The kind people at Lipton Publicity reached out to me and sent me a fun package with items from Kushyfoot’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection to try out. They sent me:
- Athletic low cut foot socks
- Sport foot cover socks
- Yoga socks
- Flats to go!
So, so fun! I loved the variety of colors and the fun snakeskin print of the flats-to-go. As I work in Manhattan, I am constantly on the go. The flats are small and roll up easily to be thrown into my bag and can change shoes on the fly. After a long hard day of pounding the pavement in heels or when out and about, these are a great option and are way more trendy and easy to carry than a pair of flip-flops. They also come in sandals and open-toe styles!
As for the socks, soft is an understatement. The socks were a dream for my feet. But besides comfort, the socks were also practical and great for when running or in my usual gym class. I haven’t had a chance to use the yoga socks just yet as I haven’t been able to make it to yoga lately but I love that they are toe socks and that they have the no-slip grips on the bottom. This is also great for when my gym has PiYo because that class is usually barefoot and the idea of my bare feet on the wooden floor kind of skives me out.
Buuuut in the meantime, I can use them for when I go get a pedicure! Isn’t that such an ingenious idea?
The athletic socks and sport low-cut foot covers were super soft. I wore the athletic socks numerous times while out for runs and no blisters! They were super comfortable and came with a built-in arch support for extra comfort. My feet felt like they were on clouds. As for the sport foot covers, come with a ventilated mesh top, arch support and a stay put heel.
The socks and flats are also very reasonably priced. The flats-to-go are less than $10 and the sport foot covers retail at $4.49 and the yoga socks retail at $4.99! You can’t go wrong with that! And right now if you spend $40 on their website, you get 20% off. And no code is needed – it applies automatically to your order at checkout! They’re really affordable as it and won’t break the bank. Plus the extra discount?! Call me sold when I need new socks – Kushyfoot is my go to from here on out!
I definitely recommend checking Kushyfoot out. You can also find them at your local retailers such as CVS, Walgreens, and Duane Reade, etc. in addition to online.
Thanks Lipton Publicity for the opportunity to try out Kushyfoot - me and my tootsies are very, very happy!
Are socks important to you when it comes to gym/running/yoga? Or do they get overlooked?
Sound off below! Happy Thursday!!
