You've probably noticed RecoFit popping up in most of my posts over the last few years.
That's because they make amazing compression gear and I couldn't recover so well without them.
I first stumbled upon them via Wilderness Running and a review posted on Gretchen's blog. It was a match made in heaven (that is, my legs and RecoFit products :)).
Just this year, they invited me to be a guest blogger on their website, which was wicked fun. You can read my first post HERE.
I slip on their Full Leg Compression Sleeves after every long run and race, and for lesser efforts (or even on the run) I prefer my Calf Compression Sleeves. On warm days, or when there is going to be a lot of sun exposure, I do not hesitate to pull on my ArmCoolers. I use these products every single week, and they have not only done exactly what I hoped they would do (speedy recovery!) but have also held up unbelievably well. I still use my original pair of calf sleeves (three years old now!).
So anywho, where am I going with this? Well, RecoFit has decided to make the leap and take their brand national. They want to be more widely available so as to give everyone the chance to experience the amazing benefits of compression gear truly made with the athlete in mind. Heck, you don't need to be an endurance athlete to appreciate RecoFit's products. I wore my full leg compression sleeves on a nine hour flight to Hawai'i for our honeymoon a couple years ago...I highly recommend compression sleeves for really long flights or car rides :) DVT is soooo lame.
This is where you come in. RecoFit has launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise the funds necessary to make their national launch. They are a small business, based out of Boulder, Colorado, hoping to take their product to the next level. You better believe I'll be doing what I can to help make this a reality.

I wanted to share this with you, my beloved readers, because this is a brand/product I really, really believe in. I won't talk about or endorse garbage, and I certainly wouldn't ask for your help if I didn't wholeheartedly believe in it. RecoFit is the real deal.
Thanks for reading, and thanks in advance for helping out a truly awesome small business. We need more companies like RecoFit in the marketplace. Now spread the word!
