It’s raceday. You trained for months. You hit your peak and tapered. You carbo-loaded the last few days and treated your body kindly. Before you push your body beyond its limits, the last thing left for you to do is suit up.
Suiting up in the marathon world these days means wearing color. In races across the globe, endurance athletes are incorporating bright and vibrant colors into their outfits. The brighter you go, the more you show. And if you’re going to run 26.2 miles, you might as well look good doing it.
We see people matching colors head-to-toe or mixing it all up―the “all-the-colors” approach. Athletes are wearing outfits that incorporate bright yellows, aquas, and pinks that just pop when you see them coming.
This trend toward brighter and bolder colors hasn’t remained in the athletic clothing lines either. Your typical endurance runner is working the 9 to 5, Monday through Friday grind. It was only a matter of time when the trends in one part of the athlete’s life spilled over into another.
That’s the way it should be. Gone are the days when exercise was an add-on to normal life. We integrate our routines into our mornings, lunch breaks, and evenings. We’ve talked before about becoming a Weekend Warrior. It means to use the weekend as a springboard rather than a crash landing. Instead of bottoming out, you push yourself to reach LEGENDARY status. One way we do that is by using graduated compression technology throughout the workweek and the weekend run.
At the job, graduated compression socks and sleeves increase blood flow in the legs, providing comfort for those who stand all day or sit at a desk for long hours. For the marathon or CrossFit athlete, graduated compression can prevent injuries in endurance or high intensity situations, and can speed up recovery afterwards to get you back in the game.
So if you are looking to bring color into your sock game at the workplace or raceday, LEGEND has you covered, offering a great variety in our performance compression and everyday compression options. It’s where fashion meets function, so you can look like the LEGEND you are.
