Pro Compression, the compression sock manufacturer, announced that professional runner, Stephanie Bruce, will join the team as a brand ambassador. Bruce is the first professional athlete to join Pro Compression’s team of Ambassadors that includes over 100 runners throughout the U.S.
Bruce has been running professionally for over 8 years and is regarded as one of the fastest female marathoners – with a PR at the Houston Marathon of 2:29:35.
Highlights from her running career include 1st at the PF Chang’s Rock n Roll AZ Half Marathon in 2013, Top American at the NY Half in 2013, 3rd at the Honolulu Marathon in 2012 and 8th at 2012 Olympic Trials 10,000m. Bruce also ran a 32:14 for the 10,000m this March, six months after having her 2nd baby. Bruce is currently training to make the 2016 U.S. Olympic Track & Field team for the 10,000 meter. She will be competing in the 2016 Track & Field Olympic Trials at the University of Oregon July 1-10th.
“Pro Compression socks are a great combination of style and comfort,” said Bruce.
“Come race day, I know that I will be looking good and feeling good too.”
As an Ambassador, Bruce will share the benefits of Pro Compression socks on her social channels and at select running events. Additionally, Bruce will be launching her own “Sock of the Month” design this fall. Pro Compression’s “Sock of the Month” program is a monthly exclusive style sock design, available in limited quantities.
“We are honored to have Stephanie join the Pro Compression team,” says Eric Smith, CEO and Founder of Pro Compression. “She is an incredible athlete and has some big goals on the horizon. We are excited to support her along the way.”
Bruce also represents Oiselle and Hoka One One while training with Hoka Northern Arizona Elite. In addition, to being an elite runner, she is also a proud mother of two young children.
