Name: Matthew Maynard
Favorite LEGEND Product: For my long runs 10+ miles, I will wear the Compression Socks as I feel they provide just enough compression to keep the blood circulating through my lower legs. I run further and feel fresher. As for my short runs below 10 miles, I will go with the Compression Sleeves, as they are easy to get on and off and just look so good. The best part is that they look good with just about any of my running gear!
LEGENDARY Goal for 2017: My goal for 2017, will be to log 2017 miles. Yes a lofty goal, but if I remain healthy and fresh not something to far out of reach. I will weigh heavily on the running community and LEGEND to provide that motivation throughout the year when the miles seem tougher and tougher!

Favorite LEGEND® product and why: Legend Compression Performance Socks – I love how versatile they are – I wear them while running, after a long run for recovery, and even to work where I’m usually on my feet most of the day.

They are also available in a wide variety of colors, so they match almost every outfit!

Favorite LEGEND® product: hands down the Compression Recovery Socks because to be a better runner (and climber), you have to also be aware of non-running things like strength training, flexibility, and recovery. These socks help my recover fast after a race or workout and I can leave them on for long periods of time

Favorite LEGEND Product: My current favorite product from LEGEND is the calf sleeve. As a ultra runner, I depend on my calves to get me from the start to the finish. Before using these sleeves I would be unable to knock out a back-to-back long run due to my calves being so tender. Since I have been wearing them, I am able to 30 plus miles on Saturday and get back out on Sunday for more punishment. I have noticed the sleeves reduce DOMS if not eliminate it completely. My LEGEND calf sleeves are part of every long run. They are comfortable during my runs and I notice the support they provide.
LEGENDARY Goal for 2017: My LEGENDARY goal this year it to run the Yeti 100 in September. That means my training plan is going to be torturous this summer with the Virginia heat and humidity. I am also in the beginning stages of my run every day goal – just passed day 52.
