Zealios Race Relief Cold Therapy Legit Works

This is me: Run 25-30 miles a week, take barre class, ride to work a few days a week … at least when the weather is nice. A calf pull in December and pure laziness kept me inside much of January and part of February, but here we are again with some sunny days and I just have to jump back in like I didn’t just have six consecutive weeks of less than 15 miles.

This is also me: Sore all over and literally cringing as my massage therapist works the quad muscle under the IT band.ZealiosAs someone with a toxic mix of dedication and days off, I have done my fair share of hobbling the past two weeks. I’m not injured, just stiff and sore and after sitting at my desk for 90 minutes, need a little warm-up before heading to the printer in the break room. Fortunately, I got a sample of Zealios Race Relief Cold Therapy a few weeks ago, and I’ve been putting it to good use.

My freakishly-sensitive skin had no issues with the translucent white gel, which absorbs quickly. One point I need to make is that after applying, follow the instructions and wash your hands, or you’ll forget about it and touch your eye, and then you’ll have watering eyes for a little while.

The gel immediately cools the sore area, and within a few minutes provides relief from the soreness of overly-ambitious runners. The primary active ingredient is menthol, and there are 12 natural herbal extracts as well.

Now, this is my mom: 60-something used to be super active (caught for her work softball team and played (horribly) on a volleyball team for most of my childhood) who has inherited arthritic knees from her dad. She was telling me about her knee pain one afternoon at my house and I gave her some of the Race Relief Cold Therapy … and she loved it. (And now I know what to get her for Mother’s Day.)

So, because Zealios’ gel worked for both my mom and me, I suggest you try it out if you have muscle soreness or joint pain. I’m willing to bet there’s a good chance it will work for you too! You can get a 3-oz tube for $17.95 or a 3-pack for $51.15 on the Zealios website (check out their sunscreen while you’re there).  You can buy it locally at a number of cycling and triathlon stores; use their retail store finder to locate some near you.

About Author

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
