Drymax Socks Giveaway....3 winners for this one....


I cringe when I think of how I used to work out in cotton socks. I even ran in cotton socks. But after I bought my first pair of running socks, I found out what I was missing. That led to a search for the perfect sock, which I finally found last fall. I love Drymax socks, known for keeping your feet super dry, which helps prevent blisters. Because of the way the socks are woven, it's best not to use lubricants or have tape on your feet when wearing them.

Those benefits aside, I also like how well they fit my feet. They don't have that annoying thick seam across the toes, and I feel like they hug my arch, which feels really nice when you're dealing with PF. I wear the hiking socks with my Birkenstocks in the fall, and I have a pair that go up almost to my knees, which I wear to bed when it's freezing outside.


So the lovely folks at Drymax gave a chance for three people to win a pair of their running socks. I have one pair in Small (women size 5 -7, men's 3.5 - 5.5), one in Medium (women size 7.5 - 9.5, men's 6-8), and one in Large (women 10-12, men's 8.5 - 10.5).


To enter, please visit the Drymax website, and leave me a comment. Make sure you include your sock size.


For extra entries (please leave a separate comment for each):


1. be a follower of my blog or become one.
2. spread the word via blog, twitter, yadda yadda yadda.


Giveaway ends at midnight on Sunday June 13.


Note: I was not compensated in any way for my thoughts on Drymax, it's entirely my own opinion.

I'm already a follower, and I've also tweeted it @runirishrun. I'd go with the medium, and they would provide some much needed relief from the nasty post-half marathon blisters I'm dealing with right now!

Melissa said...

Ooh, I would love a size small. Visited the web site and that's a pretty cool demonstration with the soaking wet sock.

Kids Learn @ Kiboom Daily said...

While you were busy giving away a whole pile of socks, I've been very busy with my social networking lately!

Which brings me to the reason for this post:

I am really very sorry that this is a form letter :(

However we spent days following everyone on the Simply Follow list from the Mom Bloggers Club, and out of 690 people, maybe only 10 followed us :(

I don’t know if you joined our blog or not, but if you have a moment, could you PLEASE go over to http://www.kiboomu.blogspot.com and give us a quick follow?

Again, sorry for this form letter, but I am going to to back to ALL 690+ people that we followed and leaving this note. Hopefully we will get a super great turnout now!

BTW I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!

XOXOXO
Wendy

Mrs. D said...

I just ran my 1st 5k in a VERY long time and what was my "prize" (other than the beaming pride that I DID IT)??? Yep, a big huge blister on the arch of my foot.

Now, I have just decided to work my way up to a half marathon. I will be running a LOT more in the future.

All that said.....I NEED these socks.

I'm a follower - and I'm with you in the cotton sock philosophy. A friend showed up to run with my husband the other night wearing cotton socks and I bit my tongue on the "Are you serious?" Come to think of it, I had to convert my husband too.

Jesse said...

When I look back at some of the stuff I used to wear while working out, I also cringe. But, it wasn't that long ago that cotton was the norm for everyone, including elites. Regardless, I can always use some more moisture-wicking socks (size large)!
