Pro Compression Review and Giveaway

Time to write about one of my favorite items in my running drawer (or should I say, drawers), compression socks.  I love these darn things.  They keep my calves going when they should be screaming for me to stop.  I only wear them for runs above 8 miles and slip into a new pair after that run for recovery.  
Pro Compression was kind enough to provide me with a pair to try out and I love them.  I have the sleeves and the ankle socks from them and now the marathon socks.  I've tried a few other brands but Pro Compression socks have definitely held up better than some others.  I love them and will continue to purchase from them.  This month the the Sock of the Month compression sock is an awesome black with neon dots.  I LOVE this sock!!! 
Here's a little only the company:
Pro Compression
PRO Compression socks are designed specifically to deliver both maximum comfort and speedy recovery times. The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood.  The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference.
PRO Compression socks are noticeably tight and require more effort to put on than standard socks in your drawer. But it’s that extra effort and much-needed compression that make all the difference. Be patient and your feet will thank you.

The only down fall to EVER pair of compression socks is the amount of effort it takes to take them off after a long run.  The last thing I want to do is battle with my socks but I know they've done their job when I have to lay on my back and pull or have my husband pull them off for me.
Here's the good part, they've given me pair for one of my lucky readers.  Enter below.

  3. i have never tried pro compression, but I do have 1 pair of CEP calf sleeves that saved my life at my first full. One of the best impulse purchases I have ever made! I would love to try these, and could use an extra set for recovery!
