More Good Things

Socks

inVigorators sent me a pair of their patented graduated medical-grade compression socks.



These socks definitely offer a good compression. They feel great on, they do the trick and they come in black so I can wear them to work. Bonus!



Visit inVigorators on Facebook or Twitter!


Sleeves

I won a Zensah giveaway from Team Giles recently and my goodies arrived in the mail last week.

I decided to go with the arm sleeves and seamless running skirt.



I haven't tested out the skirt yet, but I love the sleeves. The material is soft and comfy, they fit nice and snug and they happen to look pretty cute.


Books

I also won a book giveaway from Mel Tries to Run. My copies of Running Hot by Lisa Tamati and 50/50 by Dean Karnazes arrived yesterday. I can't wait to check out Running Hot and I've already read 50/50, but it's definitely worth of a re-read. Mel also included a postcard of beautiful Darwin. Thanks Mel!




Goodies

Lacey at Common Objects and Everyday Events sent me some goodies for participating in her "creative caption competition": a nice card, a magnet with a great quote and an Emergen-C drink mix packet. I love finding surprises in the mail. Thanks Lacey!
