Marvelousness and PRO compression #giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

We had the most marvelous weekend!  Weather was exceptional and so was the family time and celebrations.

I took my Buick Verano east on Saturday and headed to the lake!  I used to live near the lakefront and truly miss it!  I had an awesome run and the best part of it was literally running into Debbie over at Healthy Running Mom.  Of course, we were way to busy catching up on life to even snap a picture together but it was so much fun!!

Since the lakefront was so freaking beautiful in the morning after I headed home to shower,  I picked up Sara and the Hubs and we pretty much headed back to the same spot to play in the park and walk along the beach!  Total perfection!

Sunday was a big Father’s Day brunch and family party for Sara.  Lots of good times celebrating!  We were all over the place on Sunday too!  Bike rides, walks and a little outdoor jogging!

Sara is getting really good on her bike!  Perhaps we can remove the wheels by the end of the summer!

Going  back to my run on Saturday, I’m a huge compression sock fan!!  I love wearing them for longer runs and for recovery!  I put on a brand new pair of PRO Compression Marathon socks  for my lakefront journey Saturday morning and they felt awesome!

20140615-160050-57650359.jpg

Gotta love the beach and lake front view!  If I had more pairs of compression socks I would wear them all the time! I love that Pro Compression has some amazing and stylish colors and patterns!!!  Compression socks really help with blood flood and recovery!!  They make a huge difference for me!
