After SweetH2O, I laid off running for bit to see if that would help. It didn’t. It was during this admittedly frustrating time, that I was approached by representatives of the company Sof-Sole, who, I promise you, don’t have a sixth sense (or do they?). I have worked in sponsorship and marketing my whole professional career, so I was very skeptical at first. Would I have to blog about the product, if they sent me samples? The answer was a clear “no.” They just wanted me to try it. So I thought, “What the heck. Send them!”
They sent me some insoles and at first they were laying around my house as I was trying not to run too much. But eventually I tried them. And, WOW, did they feel amazing. The Sof-Sole Athletes were sooooo comfortable. Not only that, but they also deflected a lot of the impact when I would step on rocks, roots or similar. They’re pretty much a trail runner’s deam. But the very best thing was that the top of my foot completely stopped hurting since I’ve started wearing them! No more thoughts about stress fractures.
I’ve taken them onto all kinds of terrain now and all types of runs (short and long) and I have no idea how I ever ran without them. They simply are amazing! I would highly recommend you try them out (remember, I’m not getting paid for this nor do I have to write an endorsement. I actually feel this way). If you’re wondering where you can find the Sof-Soles, check out Sof-Sole’s retail locator.
My next post will be about soul searching not sole searching (yes, I can spell!).
