Running Socks

I've been running for a long time. I have a pretty good understanding of the things that work for me. One of those is nice, thick, moisture wicking hiking socks. Yes, I understand they look a little ridiculous. No, I don't really care about it when I'm running. But there's that little voice in my head that says, "you'd look cooler with real running socks". You know, the Swiftwick kind that only comes up to your ankles. Cara thinks they look a lotter cooler, too, and has tried to convert me to them more than once.

So this morning I ran in a pair of Swiftwicks that I got as a freebie at a race earlier this year, and, damn, my calves looked cool. It was a short 4 mile run, but about a half mile or so was through tall, dewy grass. When I got home I had big old blister on one of the toes on my left foot. A blister! I ran the Seattle Marathon last month in my favorite Costco socks and my feet had barely any blisters. Clearly, I should stick with the socks that work.
