Cloudline Premium Merino Wool Socks

Full Disclosure: I received a pair of socks free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

My feet are always cold... always.. and this time of the year into the Winter, it can be really painful - especially when I'm running/hiking/exercising.

It's easy for to me to 'layer' to keep my body warm, but keeping my feet warm isn't as easy. I was excited to give Cloudline Premium Merino Wool Socks a try.

Because the Cloudline socks were a little thicker than my normal socks I was a little concerned that maybe they would be too thick for my trail shoes. Surprisingly
they weren't. The fit was more 'snug' than I am used to, but it felt fine.

I took them for a test run out on the Appalachian Trail. It was great to be back on the trail.

However, I didn't expect the temperature drop, and I wasn't prepared for it! And I definitely wasn't prepared for the sleet and snow showers that seemed to come out of nowhere!

I was freezing ... except for my feet! Seriously, they were warm - comfy warm. It was awesome and unexpected!

I love the height of the sock. Being a road runner, who is doing more trail running, most of my socks are low trainers. The height of the Cloudline Wool socks were long enough to cover my ankle and part of my calf, but not too long that it felt uncomfortable with my *affiliate link calf sleeves. (Yes, I always wear compression calf sleeves. For me personally, it really does help with muscle cramps). 

The Cloudline socks were soft and not scratchy. And my feet, in addition to being warm, were also dry. I want to clarify that my feet were not hot - so don't think that these socks will be too hot to wear. They simply kept my feet warm verses painfully cold. 

On a side note, with running comes lots of laundry. I think you can identify! And the Cloudline Premium Merino Wool socks have held up well. 

Overall, I am enjoying my pair of Cloudline socks, and I would definitely recommend them to others. In fact, you can save 15% with code GLASS15 

Time to get outside and enjoy some fresh air!

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
