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

Or maybe you live in Boulder already but are wanting to try trail running for the first time or simply don't know your way around quite yet. This is the guide for you. Ambassador Michele Dillon gives you her completely biased opinion on the places you need to be pounding your feet, gazing your eyes and chomping your jaw.

Summer is a great time to replicate those drool-worthy instagram pics with trips to mountain tops, foodie towns, warm sandy beaches and everything in-between!  

Be sure you take the time to RECOVER from one excursion to the next. REST is an important part of the recovery process and allows your body to recharge so your personal summerfest doesn't become a sufferfest! We suggest you throw on a pair of Lily Trotters Compression socks and put your feet up with a good book in-hand.  

Here are some of our favorite literary finds we think you'll enjoy reading this summer.

Birmingham, Alabama is referred to as the Magic City because the iron industry boomed so quickly following the Civil War. Birmingham has a park to match every running style, an eatery to match every appetite, and is home to some of the best coffee and craft beer. There’s no Ham like B’ham!

In this article, Lily Trotters Ambassador, Holly, discusses best places to run and/or hike, then grab a post workout coffee or beer in Birmingham, Alabama.

What size works best for me?
