Lily Trotters Compression is excited to share that Runner’s World featured athlete, St. Louis wife, mom, and urban farmer Jeri Villarreal has joined our #Unstoppable Squad of amazing female athletes.
Villarreal has made a name for herself on the triathlon circuit, in part because she competes--like a boss!--in a hijab. Villarreal only started seriously training for her swim, bike, and run competitions at age 38, but since then has participated in numerous Ironman or Olympic distance events all over the map. As an athlete who is not only female but also a Muslim and a woman of color, Villarreal has become a representative of the Islamic community and a voice for Muslim women and women of color who feel underrepresented in the sport. And we thought engaging in three sports was more than enough!
Our ambassador program provides partnership and sponsorship opportunities to our athletes while encouraging members to train together, inspire one another and celebrate accomplishments as a community. Lily Trotters Ambassadors are strong and inspiring women ranging from professional athletes to sunrise runners who spend most of their day in "uniform" (whether it be mom-jeans, scrubs, or a business suit.) These wonder women aren't afraid to get their hands (or feet!) dirty while sporting products that help them perform their best without sacrificing their personal sense of style! Each member of our #unstoppable squad embodies the Lily Trotters’ identity and inspires others to live healthy lifestyles, set goals, work hard and play harder.
We are thrilled to partner with Villarreal and to support this pioneer in any event she chooses to tackle. Stay tuned as more inspiring athletes join our squad and share their stories in the year ahead!
Why Wear Compression Socks?
Compression socks make legs feel refreshed and energized by increasing the blood flow from our legs to our heart and by raising our blood oxygen level.
But compression socks do more than just make our legs feel great. They minimize leg pain and cramping and reduce swelling in our ankles and feet. Wearing compression socks can also help keep legs healthy, by delaying the onset of varicose and spider veins. Most importantly, they can help prevent a DVT (deep vein thrombosis) — a life-threatening blood clot that can show up in our legs.
Elite and amateur athletes wear compression socks to maximize their athletic performance, speed up muscle recovery and alleviate the lactic acid buildup that occurs post workout.
But it’s not just athletes who benefit! Travelers wear compression socks to alleviate leg cramps and swollen feet and to minimize their risk of developing a DVT on a long flight. Healthcare workers also understand the benefits of compression and wear compression socks as part of their medical uniform for their grueling 10–12-hour shifts.
