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!

Ras Jason Vaughan is an ultrarunner, fastpacker, and adventurer who lives in the Okanogan Highlands of Washington State with his wife Kathy. Together they blog and podcast about their adventures, philosophies, and life experiences at UltraPedestrian.com.

My ultrarunning goals are not the same as some people’s. I’m not out to be the fastest. I don’t taper. I don’t train for one or two focus races and plan the rest of the season around them. This is probably because I don’t have a running background, and certainly not a road and track background.
