We waited and the magic has finally arrived! We would like to thank Jeff Pelletier and his team at Basetwo Media in Vancouver, BC for putting this special video together for us. It means the world to Joel and I and we are thrilled to be able to share our experience running the 2014 Coastal Challenge and winning it! We also captured our vacation afterwards and would love to share it with you!
Please watch and let us know what you think! We were able to raise over $3500 for the BC Cancer Foundation in honour of Joel's mom, Lorraine, and were over the moon with how we were able to overcome the physical, mental and emotional challenges of running for 6 days in Costa Rica.

Ever tried wearing compression gear before? Ever wonder why? Couldn't feel a difference? Well we have found a brand that does exactly what it's supposed to do!
EC3D Compression Socks and Calf Sleeves
As endurance athletes, we are always looking to find new ways to help increase our recovery times and shhh.. we might have found one! We have tried many different types of compression socks in the past, but never had a noticed effect on recovery.. they only made us look more hardcore. (or have tingly feet when the over tightness caused a lack of blood circulation!) But now we have met a new breed, the EC3D brand. These are the only compression gear on the market that are medical grade and clinically proven to have an effect on enhancing performance and improving recovery.
The gear is tight and supportive, providing a feeling a strength and security while you are running, without being too tight. They are breathable, yet would be able to keep you warm enough in the winter time without over heating in the summer. We have worn them on some of our most strenuous running events, such as our latest 50km ultra marathon, The Tenderfoot Boogie. We experienced little to no post activity soreness or usual pain after running this distance in the days following. The best part about this combo is that you can buy the hybrid compression package which provides the socks, performance sleevesand recovery sleeves in one go for the same price as some compression socks alone! This will take care of your body's needs during the run and after the event.
Here is some more information on the gear from the EC3D website: (http://ec3dsports.com/products/hybrid-compressionsocks/)

Happy Running Days,
Shanny and Joel
