SmoothToe Energizing Socks enhances running performance of O'Meara
Aug '09
David O'Meara, The 46 year-old One Mile Runner, is attempting to complete 26.2 miles in 27 races, in 27 New England towns, in a total time less than 2 hours and 11 minutes, during the months of July and August (61 days) in his attempt to complete the SmoothToe New England Marathon. O'Meara has only 54 hours on average of recovery time between races, with few rest days, and attributes his speedy recovery to running with SmoothToe Energizing Socks with LYCRA ENERGY fabric and COOLMAX XTRALIFE fabric.

“My edge this year is that I discovered SmoothToe Energizing Socks. They deliver a precise amount of graduated compression from ankle to knee. Muscle recovery is the most important variable in successfully completing 27 races in 61 days. I chose SmoothToe Energizing Socks with LYCRA ENERGY fabric because, after testing the recovery benefits, I consider them the ultimate in running and recovery socks.,” says O'Meara.

“Nobody expects a 46 year old athlete to be running faster than I did last year, especially with so little time between races … yet that's what I'm doing. SmoothToe Energizing Socks are a big reason for that because I train, race and most importantly recover faster in them,” added O'Meara.

As the title sponsor of the “SmoothToe New England Marathon” races, SmoothToe is debuting its new SmoothToe Energizing Socks made with LYCRA ENERGY fabric and COOLMAX XTRALIFE fabric.

Lifestyle Medical, the manufacturer of SmoothToe Energizing Socks, has documented clinical studies of athlete's running and recovery that demonstrate SmoothToe Energizing Socks deliver high-performance moisture management, increased blood flow and faster recovery benefits. SmoothToe Energizing Socks are designed with graduated compression in the lower leg, placing the greatest amount of compression in the ankle region (20 mm Hg), and gradually decreasing up the calf to below the knee (15mm Hg), which can stimulate blood flow and help to reduce swelling.

“We're excited to be title sponsor of the SmoothToe New England Marathon, and delighted that David has chosen to run and recover in SmoothToe Energizing Socks with LYCRA ENERGY fabric. David relies upon short and successful recovery in order to accomplish his goals, and our Energizing Socks with graduated compression work exceptionally well for him,” says Damian Loth, partner, Lifestyle Medical. “All distance runners benefit from what our Energizing Socks can do for them. David is a powerful example of this and we wish him the best of luck!”

O'Meara has completed races in Woodstock, Vermont; Augusta, Maine; Loudon, New Hampshire and Littleton, Massachusetts.
