Injinji Toesock giveaway!

8 miles on the schedule today.  Another fantastic run today.  This week has been the complete opposite of last week.  My legs felt good, the hips are much better and I enjoyed each run.  I was reading about ultra marathoners and running and many wear compression shorts.  I rarely wear the ones I have but did on both 8 milers this week and it really helped the run feel better.  I do wear compression in winter but no usually summer but I will now on any run more than 5 miles.


I have an awesome opportunity for you guys.  I'm doing a giveaway for a couple pair of Injinji Toesock's.  I'm sure you have read my reviews(HERE and HERE).  If not, go read them!  I have been wearing Injinji socks this summer season and initially tried them just to test them out for a review.  I was blown away by their quality and comfort.  I didn't think I would like them at all but they are now one of my "go-to" brands for socks and I wear them regularly now.

As I said in the reviews, I really like the lightweight version and I love the mini-crew height.  That's my favorite combination.  The socks come in all kinds of different weights, heights and colors.  Here's the four samples of what I've been wearing in order of preference.

Super thin - I like!
Great for trails - black
Just wore these on today's run
The original

I've been looking for a pair of Vibram Fivefingers to go with the socks but I have yet to pull the trigger on those.  While I wear the socks no matter what shoes I wear, the Vibram shoes would only be for walking/working out and maybe VERY short runs.  I just have to find the ones I want.

So how about it?  Want to try the Injinji socks?  How about two pairs!  Yes, the lucky winner will get two pairs of Injinji socks of their choice(subject to availability).  How awesome are they to sponsor this giveaway?

Ok, here's the rules:
  1. Go to the Injinji site HERE and tell me what kind you think you would like? (1 entry)
  2. Go to the Injinji Facebook page HERE, like their page AND tell them "Detroit Runner Sent me" (1 entry) and let me know here with a comment.
  3. Go to the Injinji Twitter page HERE, follow them AND tweet this "I'd love to win @Injinji socks from Injinji @detroitrunner1 giveaway"(1 entry) and let me know here with a comment.
  4. Go to Detroit Runner Facebook page HERE and "like" my page(1 entry) and leave a comment here that you did.
Please be sure to include a separate comment for EACH entry.  That's four chances to win!!!!

Contest will end Monday, August 20th at 9pm.

Good Luck!!
