Next up, finding compression sleeves that were affordable. I checked Amazon, of course, and found a few that looked promising. I put them in my cart and began looking at websites for local stores. Champs, as we know, doesn't cater to women at all! Sports Authority had a few viable candidates, but I would need to go to the actual store to see them. Our local guy, Lloyd Clarke Sports, had one or two, but I don't know if they carried them in the store. I figured I'd have to go to one or two of these places on Friday after I picked up my Susie's Run packet from Fit-2-Run, if F2R didn't have any, of course.
Then, the Blue Fairy smacked me on the head and reminded me of Running Warehouse, a website that I recently learned about from DisBoards. They have great prices and lots to choose from. If you are a W.I.S.H. member, there is a great promo code, which I used. (I can't publish it publicly - don't want it to be abused!)
I ended up finding a compression sleeve by Cho-Pat that was only 15.95! It came in white or black, but (as usual) my size in the white was out of stock, so I got a large black one (as seen below).
I like the idea of the micropack - the small part hangs on the outside of your pants and the bigger part tucks securely inside your pants and clips tightly closed. I'm notorious for tucking things in my pants, anyway, if I don't have a pocket, so this will be second nature to me :)
The Shadow Pak, to non-runners, is deceivingly small, but it says that it will fit a smartphone. My phone is more of a Public-Educated-Not-So-Smart phone, so it's smaller than an iPhone and should fit fine! All I need to carry is my cell, lip balm, ID, car key and mp3 player. Hopefully it will fit ME well and not bounce. There's enough of me that jiggles, I don't need any extra bounce!
