Run Pretty: Mother’s Day Running Mom Gift Giveaway (Lilytrotters Review)!


There is something that should be GLARINGLY obvious by now. I love my mommy.

This lady exudes strength. She gave birth to me, after all. And so I do nothing but torture her.

This lady exudes strength. She gave birth to me, after all. And so I do nothing but torture her.

Like, I’m obsessed with her. Everything that is good in me comes from that amazing woman, and she amazes me constantly with her undying generosity and kindness.

Plus, she taught me to swear. 

Something else that should be glaringly obvious? I love health, fitness, and running. In fact, my mom got me into long distance running thanks to her participation in CCFA Team Challenge–something she undertook to benefit me, a perfect illustration of her amazing spirit and love.

It's her fault. All of it. And I should thank her for it everyday.

It’s her fault. All of it. And I should thank her for it everyday.

I feel like I never tell her this enough for her to actually hear me, but she is my true inspiration in life. And I know that many of you feel the same way about your mothers, second mothers, and daughters, so I wanted to help you all with an opportunity to celebrate the lady runners in your lives!

Just because I am briefly (YA HEAR ME, BODY) sidelined with an injury doesn’t mean I’m not still thinking about running. Similarly, just because I maintain a pretty casual wardrobe and makeup routine doesn’t mean that I don’t still care about looking cute! And I know I’m not the only one! Now, I may not necessarily be able to afford Lululemon and such on a regular basis, but I think I manage pretty well.

Case in point.

Case in point.

I was recently given the chance to try Lilytrotters, a company with the same perspective as myself with regards to fashion and practicality. You all know that I love to rock my compression socks… well… everywhere, and yes, that includes the office, airport, house, grocery store…. And while you better believe that I embrace the awesome look, every now and then I wish I could schzzuuzz up the the look (ps how does one spell schzzuzz?). I was given the opportunity to try Lilytrotters recently, and though I think I might need a different style (I’m not a ruffle girl) I loved the socks and can’t wait for the new styles!

About Lilytrotters:

  • Made in the USA
  • Proprietary easy-to-get-on 100% micro nylon weave
  • 15-20 mmHg (millimeters of mercury) – just the right squeeze! 
  • USA tested & approved high performance gradient compression
  • Cushioned heels & reinforced toes
  • Moisture wicking, antimicrobial – yay, no stinky feet!
  • Built to last a few years, not a few months like traditional knee socks

They were much more comfortable and soft than the ProCompression socks and a bit thinner than the Tiux socks. A perfect middle ground for those that don’t need the targeted calf support but wants a more luxurious fabric, and a bit of flare!
