Hey, a girl can have
But then, some other cool things happened; followers, Facebook fans, and tweeps! I was making lots of friends, learning about training and new products, and when I got hurt, I turned to my blogoverse for help. My PT recommended compression sleeves, and Tommie Copper was the name I kept hearing.
I tweeted them about sizing and they were so helpful and nice! And their compression sleeves ROCKED MY WORLD. I wasn't afraid to run anymore, and I had significantly less pain.
And then, I had my first "big" blogger moment. After my guest post on FitFluential, I was contacted by BRD Sport. They offered to send me an Achilles ankle brace! Now I know this is the sort of thing that happens to big blogs all the time, but this was a first for me! I felt special.
It took some getting used to, but the brace has been great for my runs; It's like a massage for my ankle. Mmmm, fabulous. I just wear my Tommie Coppers on one leg, and the BRD Sport brace on the other. They definitely seem to be helping. Last week I ran 9 miles with NO PAIN.
So now I'm off to do a happy dance!
Or maybe I should just stick to drawing.
*I purchased the Tommie Copper sleeves and I was sent the BRD Sport brace for free. I was not asked to do a review for either of these products. I am not being paid for this post, and my opinions are my own. (Just wanted to share some love today.)
YOGA, WITH *POWER*
