August is here and that means a few things: the summer is coming closer to an end, it’s my birthday month (woohoo!), and my wedding is less than 3 months away! There’s always so much to do! The only thing I can’t do is run…sigh…but I have had a breakthrough and I look forward to sharing it with you!
As a runner, taking care of your feet is ESSENTIAL. And yet, it often seems to find its way near the bottom of the priority list. Since I’m currently dealing with plantar fasciitis after a long marathon training cycle, let’s say that I’ve truly learned this lesson the hard way – don’t neglect your feet!
The good news is that with the proper stretches, icing, and arch support, I seem to have a pretty positive prognosis. One element that is absolutely helping in my recovery is OOFOS Oolala Sandals. I already owned a pair of OOFOS OOriginal sandals that I purchased after falling in love with the OOFOS OOmg Recovery Shoes that I reviewed for Bibrave last year. I’m a huge fan of the brand and I’m happy to share why you need to add OOFOS to your running shoe collection!

I hate to say it but if you’re a runner, you’re bound to get injured at some point in your running journey. It could be as minor as shin splints or as major as a stress fracture (been there, done that!). It’s so important to focus on recovery as a runner and to incorporate injury prevention activities in order to stay healthy. That’s why I was excited to get the opportunity to test out a brand new tool call the CTM Band! Keep reading to check out my review!
