How Chuck “MarathonJunkie” Engle uses Zensah Compression Leg Sleeves

Like many of you, I have suffered the debilitating pain associated with stress fractures and shin splints. And, like many of you, I do not abide by the rules that my doctor attempts to enforce with stern words to prevent or heal such issues. “NO RUNNING FOR 3 WEEKS” is not an answer I accept.

A review of Zensah Compression Socks by Allison Linnell

As runners/triathletes/cyclists we are used to the majority of society telling us we are crazy. When others ask about our weekends, we eagerly recount the details of our 22 mile long run, through a hurricane, with blood oozing from our shoes due to blisters. The poor soul, who probably expected an answer detailing your club-hopping adventures through South Beach, then becomes increasingly wide-eyed with horror as you go on to tell them about the long ride the next day, followed by a run off the bike, and a swim later in the afternoon. Then, with a cheeky grin, you pull up the leg of your crisply ironed trousers and reveal the fluorescent tie-dyed compression socks below, explaining that these are no ordinary socks, this compression is how I am going to be able to run another 12 miles tomorrow morning!

Zensah Sponsors Red Bull Flugtag Team from University of Miami


Monday, September 16th, 2013

Red Bull Flugtag is a national competition where teams build and fly (or crash) home-built gliders and perform a skit based on their chosen theme.  Zensah® is proud to support Team University of Miami ASME, a group of mechanical and aerospace engineering students from Coral Gables who will put their engineering prowess to the test.  UMiami’s theme is “Enalpria: The Backwards Airplane”, and the team will be dressing up as crash test dummies, complete with Zensah compression arm sleeves to help them build the craft and compete (because we all know crash test dummies could use some compression recovery with what they endure!).  The event will take place in Miami’s Bayfront Park on September 21st, 2013.  The “hangar” opens at noon in the first flight is at 2pm.  We hope to see you there!
