Greetings from the opposite side of the country: My kids and I are in Connecticut visiting my parents. We're here for a week, and I l excessively labored over packing. Especially my running outfits. Forecasts call for reasonable early summer temps, but numbers can be so deceiving since the Weather app on iPhones doesn't show humidity. Short-sleeve "are my kids still chasing me?" tee or another mother runner tank top? (Gotta go for a pop of pink so drivers on super-curvy, no-shoulder roads will be able to see me.) If I wear capris to prevent chub-rub on Sunday's long run, will I melt faster than a popsicle?
One decision was simple, though: I packed my Saucony Guide 7s with a brand-new pair of Sof Sole Fit insoles in them. As I enter my third week of training for the Victoria Marathon, my workouts demand my high arches be supported and my joints offered extra cushioning, and Fit insoles fill both of those needs. Tucked into my Saucony kicks: several pairs of Sof Sole Running Select socks. Made of moisture-wicking COOLMAX polyester, these thin running socks are ideal for sweaty summer runs like the ones I'll be taking in CT.
Alas, unlike today's winner, I don't have a week's worth of Sof Sole socks. The winner gets seven pairs of Running Select socks along with a pair of Sof Sole Fit insoles. The winner, plus how she completes the "I run..." sentence is:
Joy: "I run to clear my head. Best method ever."
I'll second that sentiment! Joy, email us (at runmother [at] gmail [dot] com), letting us know your full name, mailing address, and running shoe size. Many happy miles to the rest of you, wherever this weekend finds you.
