There is a SockGal !

If you have every wondered, "if there is a SockGuy, then who is the SockGal?" Well we have the answer! Her name is Lola and she resides in Ohio, here is her story...

" The triathlon was a point to point tri. We were to put our running shoes, and anything else we'd need for the run, in a bag with our number on it. I put my running shoes in the bag and had every intention of dropping it off at the designated spot before the swim. When I went to put my shirt from the race in my car, I must have dropped my shoe bag in my car at that time. So, after riding my bike 27 miles, I hopped off to begin the 10k run. The volunteers directed me to the place where my number 11 shoes would be, but I only found the bag my wetsuit was in. I couldn't run in bike shoes, so I took off in my socks. My SockGuy socks!

Actually, I didn't do so bad running in only my socks and actually passed 3 people who were running in shoes. So, I wanted you to know... NO HOLES in my socks or my feet! :-) "

So there you have it! Lola finished the 10k running portion of a triathlon wearing nothing but SockGuy socks on her feet! (Terry Precision custom socks)
In our book, that makes her a true SockGal!

Congratulations Lola!

Thanks for supporting my slalom skating. I placed second at the Gorge Games last weekend. The finals were filmed by Fox TV which will air in August. Not sure if they will show much of the women but I made the 1-2 round in both events and placed second next to the 5X world champion who is 9 years younger and has no kids! Great venue. The qualifying was in front of Dakine and Full Sail Ale the next day the Finals were downtown on Oak Street with hundreds of spectators. Thanks for the socks. They announced that one of the races were for all the mom's and I got a huge group of cheers. The socks were a hit!"

Judi is rockin' the SockGuy "MOM" socks.

Our current F.N.G. here at SockGuy is this crazy kook seen here on his new bike. Since he just started working here he hasnt saved up enough money to get the new IF bike, so this will have to do for now. It actually came in handy during the 1st Annual Tour de Mission Beach, although Jason was the 1st loser!

Ride On F.N.G., Ride On.

Del Mar Crit

“At the Del Mar Criterium on March 12th, Caleb Manion and Hilton Clarke worked together and lapped the field with one other rider, but it was Hilton Clarke winning the race and teammate Caleb Manion in 3rd. The highlight of their night was surely receiving the coveted SockGuy Del Mar Criterium Winner’s socks. Now Hilton will have to decide between his SockGuy Team Issue socks or his SockGuy Podium socks!”
