THIS IS MYRIAM'S TESTIMONIAL IN USING QILTA:-
"Since I started running marathons and Ultras a few years ago I always expect the worst and hope for the best. And this was again the case in this year Ultra Connemarathon (39 miles) .We started the day with a double weather warning strong winds.and floods.
It turned out to be a dry day after all but with very strong head winds for most of the race. It was very tough and challenging just the way I like it.
I don't think my legs would have feel so fresh without Qilta though .
I wore Qilta socks and calf compression for 2 hours the two days prior the race. From the start I really felt great and on my toes. I passed by a few runners half way through the race complaining that their legs were feeling heavy and stiff and that's when I realized that my legs were still fresh and feeling very light.
I also usually get bad blisters on long runs but on race day I only felt a bit sore only towards the end of the race ;
I was astonished to discover that I had no blister at all just a bit of redness.
Thanks Jim for this great product looking forward to use it again in my upcoming marathons and Ultras ."
