Things I'm Lovin: Do you Injinji? (+Giveaway)

Last year when I was marathon training and was having problems with getting blisters I reached out to the wonderful blogging community for help! Several suggested trying Injinji Socks so I did. They were like a life saver!! I couldn't believe the difference they made! I only bought one pair at first to try out, I quickly went to our local sporting store (Hibbetts) to see if they had any. It was my lucky day they had some on clearance!! So I bought 3 pairs:) I also ordered two pair of the breast cancer ones online when they were half price! Do you think I like Injinji??

Then after the first of the year when we started training for half marathons I saw that Injinji had compression socks and just knew they would be EXACTLY what I needed!! I reached out to the folks at Injinji to see about trying them out for a review, thankfully they passed my info along to Jenny with Outside PR and she was happy to work with me:)

And they sent me Purple, my favorite color!! (I also got white:) I had only used compression socks for recovery and not during running as the only other brand I had I was afraid they would make my feet too hot and if my feet get hot I'm done! Since it was winter time I decided to try wearing these while running and see what happens.  Needless to say I fell in LOVE with them!! I wore them on almost every long run we did and I wore the white ones in the RailRunner 10miler! I would highly recommend these Injinji compression socks!!

I also received two pairs of the New Performance 2.0 socks as well. One pair was blue and one was pink, so I was nice enough to ask the Hubs if he wanted to try out the blue ones.
He absolutely LOVED them!! He came straight home and took this pic himself and posted it on Instagram! He was hooked! He even had me look them up online to order some but they wasn't available to order yet. He was so super impressed that HE was had something that wasn't even out on the market yet and I think he was somewhat impressed with the fact that I was sent something to review that wasn't out yet:) On one of our many trips we took to Dick's Sporting Goods he went ahead and purchased a couple pairs of Injinji Socks and one day when I was there without him I finally found the new 2.0 Performance ones and bought him a few pairs!

So I guess in our opinion.....Everyone should wear Injinji Socks!!!!!!

Wanna win Two pairs of the 2.0 Performance socks and a package of the New Lemon GU Chomps (I haven't tried the chomps but I love lemon flavor stuff so I'm sure they are awesome:) ??

Walking additional miles during the week with toes rubbing each other isn't fun. Injinji socks looks like the solution!

And I'm a runner that needs a bit of extra support. My arches ache without compression. So I'd love to have the COMPRESSION 2.0 OTC in purple! Very cute!
