Why Running Socks Are Better

I had the most awful and painful history of running my first official half marathon. Along with my other running mates, we coursed through the rolling and unfamiliar terrain of Davao City for Davao Phoenix Marathon.

We practiced for this race and I had earned my needed training but without the needed pressure and physical battle.

At the 4th kilometer, I just had the feel of blisters from my new thin socks that I had the strong urge to cut my race prematurely but my mental motivation consumed the pain until I finished my distance at 2:35 ranked 147th among 227 runners of 21km.

So, why we indeed need some quality running shoes? Simply because we want the needed comfort from the wicked sweat and/or puddled water. More importantly, we don't need those painful blisters to keep us from running.

While there are some quality running socks that are grand among others but they can be quite pricey. So, check out your local sports or online stores for budget - friendly but quality running socks and run the difference.

Have an injury - free run!
