"Disclaimer: I received a pair of OOFOS OOahh sport project pink sandals to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming aBibRave Pro (ambassador), and check outBibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews!"
First off, let me say when I wear OOFOS I feel like I'm walking on clouds. They are THE MOST comfortable shoes I've put on my feet.
OOFOS are the perfect addition to everyone's closet, gym bag, office bag, etc. (I take mine to work and secretly put them on in my back office when I don't have to go to the front showroom. No shame)
Here are a few things I love about them!
OOFOS offers a wide variety of colors and styles for men & women. I have the OOah Sport Project Pink Sandal - Black. They have Women's OOahh Sport Slide Sandal in 8 different colors! They also have closed toed shoes, sneakers, and thong sandals! (And keep an eye out for special editions for NYC & Chicago Marathon!) LOVE LOVE! Here are a few of my favorites!
OOFOS donates 3% of sales to Breast Cancer Research Team at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston ALL YEAR LONG. Not only on Project Pink shoes, but any shoe you purchase! Not only are you taking your recovery game up a notch, but your purchase helps cancer researchers continue to work toward a cure for cancer. Simply amazing. Read more about the cause here
OOFOS is made of Oofoam patented technology that is super thick and cushiony, but lightweight all at the same time. I'm not lying when I say it feels like you are walking on clouds. It absorbs 37% more impact than other recovery shoes. After long runs or a long day on my feet, these are the first thing I slip into when I get home!
They relieve stress from your aching feet, back, and joints. They are for anyone and everyone who struggle with pain and discomfort from working on their feet, long days at the zoo, runners, and anyone in between! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
OOFOS is also machine washable & easy to travel with! When I run my next marathon in December, these will be in my checked bag or with my husband at the finish line.
They only come in whole sizes so I sized up to the whole size. (I'm an 8.5 in running shoes- sized up to 9)
For those who keep up with my posts, and even for those that don’t, last year I wrote a post to the college seniors who completed their final season as an athlete and how the transition can be really tough. I never thought of writing to the incoming freshman until now. Partly because I forgot all the emotions that factored into such a foreign year (because my freshman year was pretty brutal) and partly because I am now not bitter about my soccer career ending.. haha. So I feel compelled to write to the incoming freshman because the transition can be a little tough. (Just like when your career is over) And I want to tell you that although you may be apprehensive of the future, you were meant for this. There’s so much change happening at once in one season. The first and obvious change would be living in a place other than home. For me, my home was the ONLY home I had ever lived in, in the ONLY town I had ever known. I know I know.. you’re thinking “gah i can’t wait to be out of my paren…
The Irving marathon will be a lasting memory for so many different reasons. Some positive & some negative. The most important thing I have to ALWAYS remember is that simply completing a marathon is an accomplishment itself. Although I am very proud, I know I can grow from this experience. As a runner & person. And the competitive spirit inside me will never settle for 2 marathons, but will continue to work to get faster & stronger. I've already had people ask if I'm done with marathons and the answer is "NO WAY".
Irving was interesting.. It was a small race, but race size doesn’t bother me; a poorly organized race does though. But safety and organization during a marathon is important. On SO many different levels. I’ll elaborate more in a second...
I ran with a fellow run club member, Julia, and we started off super strong. Sticking around 8 min/mile for about 10 miles. Feeling awesome. Trucking along. We hung back from the Pacer because he was going a litt…
I had only been home a few weeks from a training camp with a professional soccer team. I was wrestling with myself internally about whether to continue my career. And God answered the question for me REAL QUICK.
That morning I was getting a quick, light lift in before my training sessions began. I was using the 35 lb bar (I think) with no added weight and was overhead pressing it to get warmed up. Rep number 2 I felt a pop. I HEARD a pop. My shoulders and neck instantly froze. I dropped the bar in front of me and jumped back so it wouldn’t fall on my head. I couldn’t really control where the bar went. I sat down and began to take my shoes off because I didn’t want anyone to know I was hurting. I was trying to play it cool but it hurt lore than anything I had ever felt before. I was fighting back tears. I was in so much pain. But the scariest part was I had no idea what was wrong. I never once thought “wow I think I just broke my neck”. I casually told chris to bring me Advil so I coul…
