Watch out, Survivor Man! Here comes Survivor Runner! Imagine that I'm running along and I'm out of water. My fuel belt bottles are dry as dust.
No problem! I'm wearing my Enduro Lady Balega Sports socks and I have run 7 miles on a hot day. All I have to do is wring my socks out.
Here's the deal... Last week, after running 7 miles, I noticed that my socks felt really heavy when I took them off. I wrung out a whole ounce (two tablespoons) of sweat from one sock. The same thing happened after an 11 mile run. I've never seen that before. So that's my running hydration tip for the day and I really hope nobody ever has to use it!
I was hoping new socks would solve a couple of little problems I've had lately. Unfortunately, after the 11 mile run, my toes were still wrinkled like raisins and after both 7 and 11 mile runs, I had tiny blisters on a couple of my toes.
I like these socks, though. I like how silky soft they are on the inside and their seamless toe. One day, I noticed that my feet felt cooler than usual. I felt the air flowing through my shoes and over the top of my feet. Gotta like that! I found my socks at Running Warehouse for $8.
And in case, you're wondering... I came up with this handy-dandy running hydration tip after running 11 miles when the temperature reached 94* (Friday) - solid proof that running really is a good time for figuring things out! ; )
