Supporting Legs and the Local Charity, Back on My Feet, at the Baltimore Running Festival

October 06, 2016 1 Comment

We're off to the races! Woohoo!

Known as one of the best races on the East Coast, The Baltimore Running Festival is holding their 16th annual event which consists of a marathon, half marathon, 5k and more. Many organizations are coming out to show support, including one particularly awesome Baltimore-based high-performance compression sock company... Ahem - yours truly.

Our compression socks have become a favorite among local runners and fitness fanatics, so we just had to cheer on our tribe at this spectacular event. We can't wait to see runners reppin' their Lily Trotters athletic compression socks at the starting line!

Lily Trotters is proud to be headquartered in Baltimore and we're dedicated to giving back to our local community. We were so jazzed to find out about Back On My Feet's Baltimore chapter. Lily Trotters will be donating 100+ pairs of compression socks to all Back On My Feet runners that cross the finish line on race day, October 15th, at this year’s Baltimore Running Festival. Back On My Feet is a national non-profit organization that raises awareness and combats homelessness through the power of running. 

Lily Trotters is excited to be a part of this event and to share our compression socks ((and hugs)) with all of the Baltimore Running Festival finishers representing the Back On My Feet team and our hometown. If you're a runner living in Baltimore, or any major U.S. city, and want to get involved in marrying your passion for the pavement with community service, we recommend you contact the folks at Back On My Feet. A truly inspiring organization.

On race day, a Lily Trotters Compression Sock Station will be set-up under the Back On My Feet tent, along with other partners such as Whole Foods and Mizuno. We will also have a booth with the full Lily Trotters Compression Collection available to test out and purchase at the Running Festival EXPO on October 13th & October 14th, which will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center from 12pm-8pm. 

We hope to see you there! 

XO, Team Lily

Confessions of an Injured Runner

Any runner who says they have never been injured is either 1. #blessed or 2. a dirty liar. Even those who have never been injured have probably had to take a few days off due to illness or just life happening when you least expect it.

Unfortunately, any of these can wreak havoc on a runner’s training plan. If you are lucky, the disruption is fairly minor and only results in a few days off. In other circumstances, you lose weeks, months or even a year.

If you're going to train for a race, why not reward yourself with a vacation at the same time? A destination race can be great motivation for training. It can also give you a chance to embrace the recovery time you deserve, after completing those hard-earned miles.

Yoga can benefit runners and non-runners alike in so many ways. You may think that the laid-back, peaceful aspects of yoga wouldn't necessarily mesh well with running -- but, yoga has a place in any runner's training plan. Here's why...
