Daily Mom and Teamarcia asked: "Where the heck do you buy those wonderful socks?"
Most of them were purchased from Dick's Sporting Goods (I have never seen them on their website though). If I see a pair that goes with one of my skirts or are just super cute, I pick them up. The pair that I am wearing in the header picture, however, was purchased from Little Miss Matched in Disney.
AJH, Morgan, KC and Jen asked: "Are those running (or compression) socks. I only run in running socks and I have been nervous about running in anything else. Do you wear them as full socks or cut them? Do you get blisters? Do they fall down?"
No, they are not running socks. They are called Reebok All Sport Socks. They are more like soccer or volleyball socks. Although I have never gotten blisters from them and I wear them as full socks, I will wear running socks underneath them on race day just to be safe. And maybe I just have monster calves, but they socks have never fallen down. I'm pretty sure they've never even shifted.
Sissyruns asked: "Do you ever get hot in the socks?"
Not really. They are thick enough to keep me warm on cold days, but thin enough that I don't overheat in them. I wore them in Bermuda in like 1000% humidity and was perfectly fine.
Christine Jensen asked: "How did you get started with the fun socks?"
The socks started with my last marathon. The weather was on the cool side, but I was without question going to wear my running skirt. So, the night before the race, I was out shopping and saw the pink striped socks. I bought a pair (for both G and me) and have been wearing them ever since.
Meg, Marlene and Darlene asked: "Which pair of socks is your favorite and why?"
Most of my socks are the same type just in different colors. But my current favorite are these (Dark Pink/Light Pink/Black Striped). Just because I think they are super cute.
Wow. You all are really interested in socks. Too bad I only have one package to giveaway. And the winner of that package is ...
