#FeelTheOO is Real!
I am so happy to get my feet in a pair of Oofos recovery sandals! Their arrival was perfect timing. I ran a hilly 5 miler the day before and could feel it in my tired legs. So, I wore these sandals all day the next day. They felt great. I didn't have to break them in. The strap was pliable and soft. No rubbing at all.
I received these Oofos Cloud White Ooriginal Sport Sandals to test and review. I'll use them a lot during my current half marathon training cycle. Many runners I know love Oofos. So, I'm expecting good things.
After I log some miles I'll write a full review. For now, here are a few photos for you.

Oofos has sport sandals in lots of fun colors. They even have special editions for the New York and Chicago Marathons! They make slip ons sandals, clogs, and shoes for men and women.
According to Oofos, the OOfoam technology absorbs 37% more impact than other foams. That means less stress for your feet, knees, and joints. Being kind to your feet and legs after a workout is the right thing to do for proper recovery.
Here in Florida we wear flip flops and sandals all year long. I know my sandals will get a lot of use!

The Best Damn Race series has awesome medals for the 2019 season. Here's your sneak peek for the Safety Harbor races on February 2nd!
Each medal has unique characteristics like textured sand and stained glass features. But the really big deal is the 3-dimensional sand globe on the half marathon medal! It's a clear dome attached to the front of the medal — with real sand inside it. That's unique tropical bling!

Of course, these are renderings, but they give you a great idea of what the final medals will look like. Don't miss your chance to earn one, two, or three medals in Safety Harbor this coming February!
