Yay for 100 Followers- Chrissy's Knee Socks Giveaway Extravaganza!

103 Followers to be exact! Yea, Coach and I are still doing the Adam Sandler coming down the stairs in Billy Madison happy dance on that one!
Just imagine a little Tumble 4 Ya playing!

So we wanted to do a big giveaway to say schanks for the love, the comments, and making fun of us! What better way to show our gratitude for suiting up with us, then to help you suit up better?  None. Lucky for you the wonderful Chrissy over at Chrissy's Knee High Socks has totally hooked me up to shower you all with knee high love.

Her site is great and has everything you can think of, but even still she does custom orders and you can add your own logo! How cool would that be for a race where a group of friends is doing it and they wanted some extra flair with their team name on it! Plus, her socks are only $6.99 and if you get 6 or more they ship for free! Here is a little more straight from her site...

Why wear knee socks? Knee high socks can be worn on many occasions or just because! They come in a variety of colors and patterns to match whatever you are wearing.

Let’s face it, if you are going to wear socks, why not wear ones that are stylish, fashionable or sexy! There’s nothing like a little flair for your feet, which is why people love wearing colorful and trendy knee high socks including popular Maxim and FHM model April Florio.

So fellas, as you can see, this is really a giveaway for you too! I won't spell it out for you but you get what I am saying!

Now onto the running aspect. I was lucky enough to try out three pairs and besides it being too much fun to come up with outfits to wear, they worked great as running socks. Even with my small calves, they never slipped down and I had no problem with blisters or bunching. Here are a few of the times I wore them and how it went...

 This was my first experience at the Jog 4 JS race. I ran about 4 miles, never got hot and like I said no blisters or falling down, plus how cute! Then I wore the ones below with my sister for her run at night, still felt super cute and they actually did a great job of keeping my legs warm! I can't wait to wear these ones with cute boots and a skirt too!
Lastly I wore a pair while biking. Unfortunately, I did it inside on the trainer so I was really hot but they would be great for outdoor rides, can't wait!

Try to ignore everything in the picture but the socks!
 Gotta say I loved how cute I felt and all the compliments I got on them! So on to the good part for you, what are playing for and how do you win! Well, here is what is up for grabs...


Check out all those awesome socks! 3, yes 3 people will win 3 pairs of socks! Holy cow, I know, I told you it was an EXTRAVAGANZA! In essence each person will win a line of socks.

Cute socks! I've had luck finding socks online, too! There are some really well-priced socks, if you know where to look. I usually wear quarter socks when I workout, though.
