Drymax Socks continue to rock the house by everyone who tries them, including the experts!

“The one thing runners want from a pair of socks is comfort. The Drymax Maximum Protection Running Sock provides the most comfortable ride of any pair of socks I’ve tried. It’s made with Teflon-like fabrics that help keep blisters at bay by reducing friction and getting rid of moisture.  Drymax Maximum Protection Running Socks

The Drymax Maximum Protection socks are very well-padded and provide an extra bit of cushioning which makes long runs more comfortable. At approximately $25, they are a bit on the pricey side. But a little extra comfort can go a long way, especially if you’re in the midst of marathon or half marathon training.”

Ironman Champion Wins with SLS3 Compression Sleeves



This is a photo of Jessica Jacobs wearing SLS3 Sleeves during one of her Ironman champion-winning runs.  She scorched through the course in Panama City Beach, setting a new course record and becoming just the 13thwoman to break nine hours for an Ironman. Along the way she flew through a 2:53 marathon, one of the fastest in Ironman history.

We love our SLS3 Compression Sleeves!  Buy them online at:

Spring Has Sprung — Time to get in Shape!


The weather is perfect for getting back out there and getting in shape.  No excuses!  The CW-X Women’s 3/4 Stabilyx Tights are perfect for the task.  CW-X tights are designed with a patented internal conditioning web to help muscles and ligaments band together to stabilize the knee joint.  They help decrease lactic acid, which is what causes burning sensations during workouts and runs.  Most people claim that they can run harder and longer when wearing these tights.  The opportunity for injury diminishes when wearing compression gear.  Another benefit of CW-X Women’s 3/4 Stabilyx Tights are they they provide extra support to the lower abs, hips and back for extra stability and power to the core area of the body.

Here is what The Doctors had to say about CW-X Women’s 3/4 Stabilyx Tights:  “These decrease lactic acid build-up which is that burning sensation we have all had when we worked out a little too hard. That’s lactic acid build-up. The idea is the less lactic acid, you can work out longer.”

Leming Primal Origins — The Name


Leming Footwear is a new name for the former Stem Footwear, which had an issue with their trademark and rebranded to Leming.  Do I like the new name?  I’m not sure.  Everyone that I talk to hates the new name.  But that’s not the important thing.  The important thing is whether you like (or love) the shoes.  Let’s start over with the question.  Do you like Leming Footwear?  Everyone I have spoken with hates the name, but LOVES the shoes!  Including me.  I LOVE the shoes, and I’m indifferent about the name.  Wasn’t it Shakespeare who said, “What’s in a name?  That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” May Shakespeare had a chance to envision wearing Leming Primal Origins when he wrote Romeo and Juliet?

What makes these shoes so special?  Leming shoes have an air-injected sole which is unique in the industry — they are super light and flexible. The result is that your feet feel liberated, instead of confined in a rigid chamber like regular shoes.  Your feet are allowed to express themselves, and move naturally as they would if you were barefoot.

I just love my new Leming Primal Origins.

  • Ultra Lightweight
  • Zero drop
  • Wide toe box
  • Minimalist feel with an urban style
  • These shoes are 100% vegan and contain no animal products

Now available in plain Black, in addition to Slate Gray, Frost Gray, Earth Brown and Moss Green.  Buy online at

The Winner of the Iditarod Invitational Raves About Drymax Socks!


The winner of the Iditarod Invitational raves about Drymax Socks, and how he wore then for 5 days without changing, and didn’t have a single blister at the end of the race.  Awesome!  We love Drymax Socks on sale at

“And then one last thing I want to include is a HUGE rave about Drymax socks. I’ve been using these socks for over a year now, and you’ve heard me rave about them before, but this time they shocked me yet again. I ran pretty much all day for a full week, almost entirely in one pair of Drymax socks, and I didn’t get a single blister! I didn’t even change my socks once for the last 5 days of the race! I know I’ve said this on this blog already, but if you haven’t yet tried Drymax socks, you’re missing out on BY FAR the best running socks money can buy.”
