Giveaway Time: Zensah Arm Warmers

Those of you who know me or follow me on Twitter know that I’m a huge fan of Zensah compression shin sleeves. I recommend them to anyone who will listen: friends, runners on twitter, runners at races, and even coworkers headed out on long flights.  They’re super comfortable and they drastically reduce the shin and calf pain I used to feel running.

A few weeks ago, as the weather started to get warmer, I decided I needed some pink arm warmers to match my pink shin sleeves (don’t ever accuse me of not being girly enough!).

pretty and pink

Like my shin sleeves, they were really soft and really comfortable. Once I put them on they were  barely noticeable. From the Zensah website:

These compression arm sleeves have a second-skin feel which makes them the most comfortable compression arm sleeves out there. They are made with a seamless design and ergonomic fit which increases circulation for maximum performance.

I put them on and headed outside for a run.  But bad luck struck and after a few minutes the sleeves started sliding down.  It turned out that the sleeves were just a teeny bit too big for my skinny little chicken arms so after my run, I put them in a box and mailed them back to the online retailer I purchased them from.

This is where a sad story turns happy.  I sent a tweet to the nice folks at Zensah and asked them if there was a smaller size than Small/Medium*.  They replied back that there wasn’t but that they’d send me a new pair over, just in case the first pair I received was mislabeled.  And they did it for free!

When my replacement sleeves arrived and I was so excited that I did a little fashion show!

As the photos show, the sleeves were still just a little too big.  But my loss is your gain! When I offered to return the sleeves to Zensah, they said I could use them for a giveaway. So here’s your chance to snag a pair for free!

    Okay I’ve already done all five of those things! 🙂

    I’d love them because they’re pink! Also, compression and warmth when running in chilly weather.

    I would love to win because arm warmers are the best this time of year, when the weather is too cold to run short-sleeved at first, but then you are warm a few miles in.
    p.s. Love the fashion show!

  21. Ooh, they would perfectly match my light pink Zensah calf sleeves! Love!

  43. What a fun giveaway! And that’s so nice of the company to let you give ’em out because they didn’t work for you… My guess is that’d they’d be too big on my arms, too. I’m tryin’ to buff up, though! So maybe not?! I’ve gained a lotta mass in my arms in the past year (which in reality isn’t all that much, I think it’s just in my genes… my famjam is lanky and small boned, we look like macaronis, but the muscle mass I *have* gained sure has helped with my confidence! I’m not *as* skinnyminnie anymore!)
