As this is supposed to be a running blog, I thought it appropriate to use at least one of the A to Z Challenge days to focus on something I’ve learned in this journey. Without a doubt, if you want to be a happier runner, you need two things — good shoes and socks. Last season I was on the hunt for new socks and my local Running Room expert suggested three different options. I tried all three, but my favourite by far are the Feetures. They provide great compression support. Also even after they’ve been worn for quite a while they don’t slip or shift around on my foot.
