Day 6 of #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas

Thanks so much for stopping by my corner of the InterWebs today. Whether you've been following along on my journey since I started this blog OVER TWELVE YEARS AGO or you stopped by for the first time today - WELCOME!

And no matter how long you've been visiting, you picked an AMAZING time to pop in because we're celebrating my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas {read my post announcing this series HERE if you don't know what I'm talking about}.


Today is Day 6 of my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas! And the prize today is pretty FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC! Although, to be honest, all of the prizes are absolutely AMAZEBALLS! If I could enter my own giveaways I'm pretty sure I would enter each and every one of them in this series (and somehow rig it so I'd win) because they are just that AWESOMESAUCE.


Up for grabs today are: 6 pairs of 

PRO Compression Socks or Sleeves.



For today, DAY SIX, six random winners will each receive a pair of PRO Compression socks or sleeves of their choice.

I have been lucky enough to be on the PRO Compression Ambassador team for the last five years (and have been rocking the gear even longer). If you know me then you know I wouldn't rep a brand I didn't whole-heartedly believe in. And PRO is one of the first companies I knew I 'needed' to team up with! Not only are they local (they're down the street in Carlsbad - literally, Ryan used to walk from his old office to pick up my orders), but they design and manufacture their products in the USA, their stuff has the perfect amount of graduated compression, the colors are bangarang (and go with every and any running outfit you can think up), and who's legs couldn't use an extra hug every now and then?!

Some of the pictures on my phone of me rocking some PRO socks

PRO's compression gear has helped me tremendously throughout my running "career". I wear the Marathon Socks during long runs, after hard workouts, when flying, etc. If it's too hot or I'm doing a shorter, lower intensity workout, I rock the Low Trainers. Even if you don't run, but are on your feet all day or are traveling for long periods of time, they're amazing!

At one point,  my collection included over SIXTY pairs and I had a drawer dedicated specifically for all my PRO gear!

Bottom: Low Trainers and PC Runners included

Entering this giveaway (along with the other #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas giveaways) is easy-peasy! Simply use the Rafflecopter widget listed below on the giveaway blog post and cross your fingers. Some entries are available daily so I'd HIGHLY recommend entering early and often. (Shoot, I would even go as far as suggesting you set an alarm to remind you to come back to this page every 24 hours so you can take advantage of as many entries as possible!)

a Rafflecopter giveaway Now, the nitty gritty details... All entries are verified, so please make sure to do whatever the required action for the entry is or it will be disqualified. I would hate for you to miss out on winning due to a technicality, so if you are going to click the option, make sure you do whatever it asks or a new, random winner will be selected in your place.

Also, this giveaway will last seven days, with the winners being randomly picked (and notified) on the eighth day. The winners will have 24 hours to reply to the congratulations email from me to claim their prize. That means, for this specific giveaway, it will end on December 12th at 11:59pm PST and the SIX winners will be chosen on December 13th.


And, finally, the winners must have a US mailing address. International shipping seems to cost an arm and a leg these days, and customs is a major headache, so to make it easier (and cheaper) on the brands who have offered up their products, the winners must live in United States of America (or at least have an address we can ship to within the US).

With that said, BEST OF LUCK TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERS! And don't forget to stop back tomorrow to see what is up next in my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas (I promise you do NOT want to miss out on any of these giveaways!)!

PS Just in case you aren't one of the SIX lucky winners, you can still use coupon code "CARLEE12" for 40% off your entire order (because EVERYONE is a WINNER in my book)! So go get your shop on and save a few dollars in the process! The code is good for a single use per customer and will expire on December 31st, 2018. #KeepItTight

I love using my PROcompression socks! I tried calf sleeves first but I wasn't a fan of how my ankles had issues with the cutoff point. I definitely prefer the all-over compression with a sock.

ProCompression! I have sleeves of another brand (it was before I knew about Pro), but I prefer over the calf socks. I'll admit, the Pro mids don't work for my unusually large calf-to-ankle-ratio legs...

Jackey Deschamps said...

I would love to try these

Bain said...

Compression is a savior for me for half marathons. (Let's just say it helps keep the jiggle to a minimum!) Usually I wear 2XU compression tights. Then I love wearing compression socks after the race, whether I'm getting on an airplane or just loafing. (I tend to even wear them to bed, because it's like a wee hug for my legs.) While there aren't any brands of compression socks I have disliked--wait, not true, my sister-in-law got me a really weirdly narrow pair once--I love all the bright colors and designs from Pro Compression. I also love how much Pro Compression is dialed-in to the running community, shows up at lots of race expos, and sponsors meetups. I love supporting a company that gives back.

wvmello said...

I have never tried compression socks but I bet they would help!

Ashley Rivers said...

I have tried a few brands (pro compression, 2xu, zensah), and I like them all for different situations! I prefer sleeves for during a run and full socks after long run for recovery.

I have a pair of PRO, and a pair of LilyTrotters. I like the designs of Lilys, but they are not nearly as compressive (is that a word?) as the PROs are. I use them on easier workouts and save the PROs for more serious work.
