Aspaeris Review and Giveaway!

Thanks for the Picture Mike!!

Yay!  Another giveaway!  Everyone loves a giveaway!  First I want to review these Aspaeris compression shorts because they are worthy of a review!  These things are great!  They feel great on and they really do make a difference.  I have worn them twice now and both times were my longest runs to date.  My pace was also very good for them being as long as they were.  While wearing these compression shorts I truly feel like I'm running more efficiently.  I feel more held together and like I'm more compactly running.


When I received them I was a little worried.  You pull them out of the envelope and these things look like they could fit my 5 year old!  They go on easy enough though.  My only issue I had, and it may be due to my "pancake ass" is that they felt like they slid a bit below the area I like my shorts to sit while I run.   No crack was showing so it was all good, just took some getting used to for me.  If you haven't read up on running and compression, you need to.  It's completely true that compression helps with during and after a work out!

The giveaway!

  1. I think it's amazing that Aspaeris was founded for women to help prevent ACL injuries. After going through ACL surgery with my husband that is one injury I want to do everything possible to stay away from!

  6. It would be especially "sweet" to win these shorts since I am three weeks away for running a half marathon to raise money for World Vision.

    I am familiar with compression shorts but didn't realize there were any companies like Aspaeris that had such a specialized product for women. I love the posture aspect of the shorts design. How many times have we heard "don't let your knee go over your big toe". Awesome!

  45. I think that it's really cool that Aspaeris designed these shorts to help in improving form and preventing injuries. During the training for my first full marathon, I have experienced knee issues due to weak form. I am rebounding nicely and I think these shorts could help in my recovery and allow me to cross the finish line on 11/6 :)
