Wednesday Giveaway - Aspaeris Compression Shorts

I was recently introduced to Aspaeris Pivot Shorts. There are benefits to wearing Aspaeris. They  promote injury prevention, increased performance and faster recovery. When I received my shorts, I thought there was no way they would fit me and that my friends 9 year old daughter could wear them. Luckily for me, they are not as small as they appeared. I ordered a medium and they fit perfect. I normally don't like my shorts too form fitting but these stayed in place, didn't give me a muffin top and most surprisingly - they were slimming. I paired my shorts with my Halftime Designs Keep Calm and Run On tank.
I tested out the Aspaeris shorts out on a short run. We did 2 miles and I finally hit under a 9 minute mile. It was 8:59....but it was still under 9 minutes!! After 2 miles, the shorts were still comfortable, I didn't once have to pull at them.
Aspaeris is technically two pairs of shorts bonded together. The Outer Short is a high performance compression short designed to support your muscles. The Inner Short features Dual Sensory Compression Bands™. Aspaeris Pivot Shorts™ are designed to keep signaling for your body to maintain proper position during repetitive motion. It helps adjust your legs and hips to avoid injury. Patent-pending targeted compression zones guide your knees into the proper position.

I really liked the Aspaeris Pivot Shorts. I am going to have to order a red pair now since have two upcoming Disney races I am dressing up for. Tower of Terror 10 miler - I am dressing up as Jessie from Toy Story. Walt Disney World Half Marathon - I am dressing up as Minnie Mouse along with two of my friends. The red shorts will be perfect under both of my skirts!

Now for the good part. I am giving away one pair of Aspaeris Compression shorts. The good people of Aspaeris is also giving $25 off of their shorts for my readers with the discount code ADVOCATE25! These shorts come in red, navy and blue and you can find them on their website here. You can also follow them on twitter @aspaerispivot.
