Happy Monday!!! Today I’m so excited to have Sarah Canney aka Runfargirl here to talk to us about her amazing story and cause. But first, I’ll share a quick list of my favorites from this past week….hang onto your socks.
I know this probably sounds ridiculous but I’ve been on a sock hunt lately. You could say I have some sensory issues. Big time. I’m insanely picky about how my feet feel when I’m running. Enter my shoe collection….
Even though I love my Thorlos, I’ve been seeing toe socks floating around Instagram so of course, I had to try them out. I’m new to this company and this concept. Toe socks? Really? I thought my kids laughed hard when they saw my compression sleeves…..
They may not be the most attractive thing in the world, but they are SO comfortable.
My favorite thing about these socks is that they aren’t tight around my ankle. They are nice and soft and I have loved them for summer running because they aren’t too thick. I’ll be using them this next weekend for Hood to Coast. I’m testing them out to see if I get blisters, as that’s what they are supposed to prevent. I’ll keep you posted(get excited). You can read more about these socks here.
Ok so these were some of the first real running socks I ever purchased. I’m down to one pair which means I’ll be running out today to grab some more. I’d categorize these as somewhere between the Thorlos and the Injinji’s. Not too thick, not too thin. Their just right and I love them. They are a little thicker on the bottom instead of all around which I like. My foot doesn’t feel crammed in my shoe when I wear them and I don’t get blisters in these bad boys. Check them out on Amazon here.
So that’s it for socks this week. Hope your feet stay nice and happy and you check out some of these awesome options.
When I first got on Instagram and started following different runners, I was slightly intimidated. Certainly I’m not alone…I hope. How is everyone so fast?! How do they run all the hours of all the days of the week and all the months of the year. I felt a little behind. Then, I decided I needed to stop comparing myself and start learning from others success…and failures. I needed to be encouraged in my own running journey from other people that are around me in the not so typical way…via the internet. It seems weird that you could build connections and relationships with people that you’ve never met but it’s actually really awesome. I have found a support group and running community unlike anything I’m apart of in my regular day to day life here in McKinney. I love it.
Through this whole process I stumbled upon RunFarGirl, Sarah Canney. I started following Sarah, then I noticed a bunch of shirts floating around with “Embrace the Hill” on them. I did a little research and discovered Sarah’s awesome story and cause. Then I ordered two shirts…..and then another one. I’ve told ya’ll I have a problem.
I reached out to her and she has been gracious enough to answer questions for me and help me out with different things I have faced over the past few months. We’ve become fast friends from a distance and I’m so thankful God allowed me to stumble upon her through the IG running community. So, she’s here today to share a bit of her story and how you can become involved and give back…..
1. Tell us a little about yourself…. My husband and I and our two kids live in New Hampshire, where I was born and raised. I am a stay at home mom of two: Sophia is four and my son, Jack is two. I spend my days running after my little ones and blogging when I have time at runfargirl.com. I love to write, cook, read and of course run! And I am passionate about helping the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock in Lebanon, NH where our son Jack had two surgeries to correct a birth defect.
Sarah, I can not thank you enough for taking the time to pop in and answer some questions. Thank you for being an encouragement to me and teaching me to embrace my own hills with strength and courage.
Happy Monday ya’ll!!
