Defeat oftens begins with de feet...

Yes, I've decided to take on the extra challenge of trying to come up with a witty title for my posts. Hopefully it'll be one of many reason you keep coming back to check out my blog.

And...I would be remiss if I didn't remind you that I'm running the Boston Marathon this year on a charity number so I need to raise money in order to participate. If you are so inclined/motivated please click the donate button at the top right of my blog to donate to my cause and thank you in advance.

Now onto the blogging goodness...

When it comes to foot care and chafe relief, I've tried everything I can get my hands on. Having served as an Airborne Ranger Infantryman through my Army career, I lived on my feet. We routinely did 12, 20 and 30 mile road marches in addition to long morning runs for physical fitness. Keeping my feet in shape and preventing abrasion/chafing practically became a second job. Now that I run,ride and swim so much the quest has continued...until I was turned onto Everstride and their high performance skin care products for athletes.

Their Pro Foot Therapy is not greasy to the touch, gets absorbed by the skin fast and most importantly helps PREVENT blisters and chafing AND repairs and restores damaged skin. You read that correctly, prevents and repairs. I put a thin coat on my feet before a long run and another after the post run shower. I can tell you that my feet have never felt better and I've NEVER been blister or callus
free...until now! Because of all the time I spend in the pool (you know that chlorine leaches the moisture out of your skin) and the extreme cold training my skin has to endure during New England winters, I thought I'd try the cream as body moisturizer too. I was blown away that it was just as effective!

They also make an Anti-Chafing Sport stick too (yes, you now have competition Body Glide!).  Just rub it on any of the places you'd want relief; back of heels, thighs, arms (bra areas for you ladies) and you're friction free. And like their Foot Therapy its greaseless and I've had no issue with it easily washing out of clothes or gear.

They also have an nail anti-fungal solution that I'm trying out but thats for a later post...

So...because I love their product so much, the folks over at Everstride were nice enough to give me a coupon code that I could share with my readers/followers. Just head over to their website, buy any of their awesome products and use the code Ranger20 at checkout. That code will not only give you 20% off your ENTIRE order but they will ALSO donate a portion of the sales to the charity I'm supporting with my running of the 2010 Boston Marathon!
