The Fed-Ex man is my Santa…. He arrives in his glistening white truck with gifts on a regular basis DESTINED to turn me into the next Cheryl Zwarkowski (not that anyone can ever BE her, I mean COME ON…she is AMAZING, but it is MY blog.. and even little….well, even six foot tall amazon runners have dreams too) I leave my slightly sweaty, short-wearing Santa, secret love notes on my front door saying “Please leave ANY and ALL packages on front PORCH. Thank you! Love~ me” Where do such goodies and gifts come from you might wonder???? The deep jungle forest of the Amazon...yeppers, I am a Amazon Prime Palinola and I am relentless in the compulsive repetition of purchase of running gear until I am a svelte gazelle gliding through the forest. The variety of ultra running goods in the forest is dazzling! The prices for these magical powered wings of speed can cause one grittyglittergirl to get in quite the pile of confetti with the golden purse however. Never fear! The power of nursing logic always rules and like an excellently trained Intensive Care Nurse always does I am willing to look at alternative treatments.
I purchased a pair of quite spiffy…$9 compression sleeves labeled for maternity use. Props to whoever these teen moms are wearing these because my “maternity legs” would NEVER have fit into these tiny little argyle numbers. I even ordered the M/L. Perhaps they meant maternity because they are for the babies after they are born…to keep them warm in the nursery..like adorable little tights…awwwww
Also a pack of bad ass black nursing compression socks, three pairs for less than $20!!! I was super stoked and rolling. As you can see even after over 10 miles of gliding (fine, stomping like a mad water buffalo through 97 degree NC heat) the socks are AWESOME!!!!
