I have some exciting news to share with you guys today. If you ever look at my sidebars you might have noticed a logo for Swiftwick pop up on the left hand side over the holidays. Swiftwick is an athletic performance sock company that I had the pleasure of meeting at Runners World. They talked of their socks durability and comfort and asked if I would like to try them out. After I went home that weekend and got back to gym and outdoor running I used Swiftwick socks every time. Pure and simple, they’re amazing socks. They let my feet breathe, hold them snug in my shoe, and most importantly of all, I don’t feel them when I run.
I was so in love with Swiftwick socks we kept in touch as months and time passed. I raved about them to friends and Josh started to really wish he had a pair for our couples run when I would wax poetic about how amazing the socks were and how I couldn’t believe I used to work out in non-athletic socks. There is such a huge difference.
Swiftwick recently asked me if I would like to become an Ambassador for them. Without hesitation I said yes, I truly love the product and the company. What me being an Ambassador means is that I’ve been becoming familiar with all their awesome products so that if you ever have any questions, I can hopefully help you out. When they get new products I’ll share them, and when they run contests there’s free goodies for you guys!
You may have noticed I’ve been a little silent on the running front lately. I’ve been dealing with some health things that have kept me from breaking a sweat and working out like I used to. But with the New Year I am ready to get back to running and strength training in a big way!
Swiftwick was so kind to not only hook me up with socks, but my parents and Josh. Josh and I love to run together and I’m so excited he’ll get to experience the amazingness that is their running socks. My Dad is probably the most active guy his age I know. He’s always walking places, going on hikes, going to play basketball, doing pushups, going skiing, etc. etc. He’s a great role model to me to stay active as I get older. I know he’ll put his socks to good use.
Diane loves the outdoors and hiking too. She also goes on long power walks a lot and has recently started running! I’m so proud of her. The biggest message I want to spread on my blog about running is that if I can do it, anyone can. I’m not fast and I can’t run super long distances, but I love to run. All you have to do is put one foot in front of the other, your body takes care of the rest.
Besides making super awesome socks, Swiftwick has also been focusing on improving their global footprint. They just launched their Sustain line of socks that are made from recycled material. I’m pretty excited about it, and Swiftwick is too! To celebrate the launch they’re letting me give away 30 pairs!
