Sponsor Spotlight: Aspaeris Pivot Compression Shorts



For any of you runners out there, you understand what a good pair of compression shorts can do for you.  They are great for recovery, but, in my opinion, even better for those long runs.  And Aspaeris Pivot Shorts are the best I have tried.  Here is a brief description of the shorts from their website:

Aspaeris Pivot Shortshave a triple purpose:

They should add a 4th purpose: Give you a better backside profile! They really do!

Improved Performance

The patent pending Dual Sensory Compression BandsTM guide your muscles into proper alignment. This guidance reduces your muscle fatigue allowing your body to move in the most efficient possible way. You’ll feel lighter and stronger as you push your body to the limits.

Runners know that the less energy used worrying about form, the more energy available to run a faster race.

Faster Recovery

Running in Pivot Shorts sets you up for an easier recovery period through improved muscle alignment. However, if you only wear Pivot Shorts for recovery, the Dual Sensory Compression BandsTM serve a secondary purpose in holding muscles in place and improving the circulation to your tired quads, hamstrings, and glutes.

Injury Prevention

Your race goals may be to beat your personal best, but Pivot Shorts are made for more than just performance. Proper body alignment means you’re lessening your chance of injury.

When you’re on your 24th mile of a marathon, you are not thinking about running form anymore. Let Pivot Shorts do the thinking for you. The light guidance will help you maintain your form and stay strong til the end.

Pivot Shorts are not your everyday compression shorts; they are a triple threat. Let them give you the confidence you need on your run.

Black Aspaeris under my skirt
I bought my first pair of Aspaeris Compression Shorts for the Shamrock Marathon.  I have had issues with my IT band in the past and wanted to keep my IT band as happy as possible while training for the marathon and during it too.  Plus, it was while training for the marathon that I began to have hamstring and glute issues and I wanted to make sure that these muscles were as supported as they could be. And, I loved these every mile!  Not only did they help during training, but they were great during the marathon as well.

This was my second marathon and my first wearing Aspaeris Compression Shorts and I could tell the difference.  My muscles still felt good after the marathon and the recovery was so much easier!

I now own these compression shorts in all three colors and would recommend them to anyone!

And, lucky for you, Aspaeris is giving one of you a pair of these in your choice of size a color.  Get excited runners!!

  2. Really good review. Do you know if Aspaeris is having a promo?

    I use to have one until I fell on my butt real hard and it ripped. I do agree on your 4th purpose. It really does give you a better backside profile. Especially when you're running on a treadmill at the gym. Wearing those compression shorts also motivates me to stay healthy.

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part I

(I started writing this post months ago, but have not had time to refine it and finish it.  I have felt the need to hit "publish" lately though.  Maybe it is because Hope is too quickly approaching 12 months old and my desire to share it's sentiments would be lost soon. Or maybe it is because this week is the March for Life and the sacredness of life is before me in a precious little girl and I want to remember that, in words, here.  But whatever the reason, here is our story of seeking God's will and and being open to life.)

Shortlyafter we announced that we wereexpectingbaby Hope, I felt that I needed to share ourNFPstory.  Partially, it was because we had so many people say thingslike, "What a miracle!" or share stories of how people they knew were infertile, adopted and then had a baby of their own, thatI feltthat many people probably got the wrong idea about why we had three boys, waited a while and adopted and then found out we were expecting a baby wh…

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

Got Hope?

She was born on a Tuesday during Primary season of the presidential election.  Once settled into my room, I remember the TV being on and the news was all about secured presidential nominations.  The following morning, I scrolled through my Facebook feed and there was a great deal of incredulity.  Despair and hopelessness even.  I quickly turned away from it and struggled to get out of the bed, to begin my c-section recovery.  I had a precious little baby, Hope, to take care of after all.  I couldn't get swept up in the emotions of the what is going on in our nation, in the upcoming election.



And since Hope's birth, there have been many crazy, hard to believe, tragic events.  And during that time, my main focus has been on this precious life, on Hope.  It has been amazing how focused I have been on Hope and my job as her mother.

I need to nurse Hope.

Help Hope grow. 

Love Hope.

Nurture Hope.

Cuddle Hope.

I need to hold on to Hope.
