Rock Tape

This past week I was given the chance to try out Rock Tape.  Rock Tape is Kinesio tape the relieves the aches and pains of running and other endurance events.  I have been having some workout related pains lately.  Running and Insanity is hard on the body!  My knee was killing me, and I have been dealing with plantar fasciitis off and on for the past year.  When I heard about Rock Tape, I figured there is no harm in trying it.

Over the past few years, I have seen runners at my various races all taped up.  I was always skeptical--does all the tape really help?  How does it work? This past week I have been wearing tape on my knee, my foot and my neck.  Does it help?  I really think so!  I feel like the tape gives my sore muscles support, but does not restrict them.  I can still move and do all the crazy Insanity moves.  I can still run unrestricted, but I have a little extra cushion.  I am a believer!

My first question--how in the world do I know how to use this stuff?  How do I apply it?  Where do I apply it?  Rock Tape has taken care of all of that for us.  In the box, you get an instruction book.  I learn and understand better by seeing someone else do it--and so do lots of other people.  Rock Tape also has a great web site that with videos that show you exactly how apply it.

Rock Tape heard about my fundraising efforts and they wanted to help!  They sent me a big box of assorted Rock Tape to use as a fundraiser.  I had originally planned to use it as part of my raffle, but that would only give three people the chance to try out this awesome running product--I want more running to try out!  So
here is my offer to you--the first 12 people to help with my fundraisers will get their very own box of Rock Tape (an $18 value).  You can help out in a few ways:

1) Make a donation of $25 or more to my fundraising page.

2) Entry my fundraising raffle at the $25 level or higher.  My raffle has some really cool stuff!  runDisney travel, two Sparkle Skirts, Allied Medal Displays, Sweaty Bands and so much more!

3) Join my virtual race.  You will get a really cute medal!







After you make your donation, email me at amysmith7@comcast.net .  Let me know that you donated and
what color tape you prefer.  I have several colors/designs and I will do my best to accommodate all requests.  Thank you for your support!

A dream is a wish...

  1. I've been having knee pain recently as well... it's not so much like OUCH pain but inflammation and a general twingy-ness. Icing helps provide temporarily relief after the problem, but maybe Rock Tape can help prevent it!

    I really do believe that kensiology tape helps! I ran the PHM injured (and really trained injured) and that stuff was a lifesaver for me. I've never heard of the Rock Tape brand but I love all of those prints! Hope you get to feeling better! That Insanity is some tough stuff!
