Zensah has created new running socks designed to complement their compression leg sleeves. The socks will be available for sale at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon during the Health and Fitness Expo from May 4th to May 5th.
Zensah is known world-wide as an innovator within the running community, having developed the world’s first and bestselling seamless compression leg sleeves. Runners know the importance of running with a quality sock. Using the wrong sock may cause blistering and discomfort, distracting the runner from training and impairing overall performance. Other socks may provide extra cushioning to help with blistering, but then cause feet to feel hot and heavy as the fabric becomes trapped with perspiration and the foot is not able to properly breathe. Through working with numerous athletes and other industry experts, Zensah® has developed a running sock that delivers superior breathability, while giving runners additional cushioning.
Zensah Running Socks are available at specialty running stores throughout the United States.

No one has ever accused golf of being a lawless society. Indeed, one of the tenets of the game is that the players police themselves. It is up to each golfer to determine when a rule has been broken, and at other times it is a matter of conscience. If you took two swipes to get the ball out of the woods, the proper thing to do is confess to two strokes, not one — even if no one could see you behind the trees. And throwing the ball out of the woods instead is definitely frowned upon. You can’t throw it that far anyway (I mean, or so I’ve heard).
As people are fond of saying: golf is a game of integrity.
But what if the notion of policing ourselves is itself a transient, unfixed golf principle? Who actually makes up the rules, especially if we are policing ourselves?
Bill Pennington at the Ny Times notes the Polara Golf Ball as a nonconforming, against the rules Ball that has gone mainstream, generating over $3M in sales. Also, interesting that some retailers are asking for more nonconforming golf products. Read the rest of the article at NYTimes.com.
