Thanks to America’s favorite groundhog, Phil, I can officially announce out loud that it’s pre-spring. I actually declared it about a week before him but since I’m not as cute, I guess he wins out. It took a few years to get over this fact, but, I’ve learned to get over my jealousy. This is one of my favorite seasons in general but one thing does bother me, running clothes.
Runners all know (newbie’s watch out) it’s confusing right between winter and spring (I like to call it pre-spring) so it’s a bit difficult to find in-between running clothes. Winter clothes can be too warming and heavy while summer threatens frozen body appendages. Then (I’m still so excited!!!) when we found a running store in Charlottesville, VA I found a package of (3) different colors of Asics Quick Lyte Single Tab Running Socks. Just within the last year I have been getting into running clothes more and more. When I first started (as everyone should do), I just wore whatever was in my exercise clothing drawer.
Then I found this magical material creation called “moisture wicking” for running/exercise clothes. Basically if you are a newbie, look for this on your clothing labels since the material steals the moisture from your body. I’m not ashamed to admit it, I’m a sweater… not the nasty smelling kind mind you. So the difference for me is that moisture wicking absorbs a lot of that sweat so I can look as though I am putting the effort in but could go another 50 miles. (Unless I lay down on the gravel after 10 miles…haha)
These Asics Quick Lyte Single Tab Running Socks are amazing!!! The perfect solution to running in the pre-spring season. The tab on the back of the heel is easily held in by running pants and keeps the ankles warm. Other running socks without the tabs can slip down while running with no method of covering the ankles. See, perfect!!! Along with the silky feeling to the materials in the socks, these running socks not only fit but also feel like a dream to run in daily. I highly suggest them as you can tell. And no, I’m not getting paid for this mini review I just love them so much!
*Note: This is the first time trying out the Asics but I’m definitely going to follow up with some other products by them since I love these socks. Quality products energize me as motivation – try it out, it works.
