Karen F. -- Addaday Roller -full size or junior version
I love how the full size Addaday Roller can be used on many different muscles. It has a steel inner rod, so it's firm and allows you to even massage your own back. I particularly like how it makes your calves feel so much better, minimizing the stress of tight muscles on your plantar fascia and just reducing pain in general. It only takes a couple of minutes and life is much better! Feel free to come in to the store and we can show you how to use it to stay injury-free.
The Addaday Junior Roller is an excellent idea for a stocking stuffer! It's especially helpful if you have someone to help you! It's great for collar area, the shoulders, the upper & lower back, and the large leg muscles. Come check it out!
Megan D. --CW-X Compression Stabiliyx Tight
Known to many of our customers as the "Magic Pants," these bottoms provide optimal support for the core and knees by the use of compression webbing. The compression fit holds the tendons and muscles surrounding your lower body, which makes for fresh feeling legs for any distance. The rainbow stitching makes them very cute while the reflective elements keep you safe during night time activities, as well. They are available in both ¾ and full length versions.
A good run in the winter starts with what you put on first (including your attitude). Wind briefs give guys protection and comfort so you can concentrate on more important things like having a good run, no matter what the weather throws at you!
Taylor -- Yaktrax!
Even though he has a love/hate relationship with them. They do provide some great traction on your runs in the snowy Wisconsin winters!
Craft PXC Storm Jacket, which Jessica often sports at the store and on runs. It is made with Craft's Flex Fleece fabric with strategically placed elastic windproof chest panels for cold weather protection. The Storm Jacket is designed for winter running, walking, snowshoeing, or skiing. In addition, it has two zippered front pockets for storage and reflective details for safety.
Curtis H. --
Be safe and seen with a headlamp this winter. You can see where you are going and be visible to the cars on the streets. The Petzl Tikka is lightweight and comfortable.
Matt R. -- Agreeing with Curtis on running in the dark safely, Matt recommends the Amphipod Xinglet. This reflective vest is also great for summer running in the early morning or late nights because it is lightweight and easily packable. The vest is available with a pocket.
