I started running again. I know. It’s awful.

Actually it’s not horrible, I run on the treadmill in my garage and I do end up feeling better after I am done. Stupid endorphins.  The problem? Well… I have two kids. And it’s not that they constantly want attention when I am treadmilling it up, it’s that because I have two kids (and I am 42 years old! Eeek!!), I have a slight issue with bladder leaks. It’s not horrible. It’s not great either. It’s annoying. 

I mentioned light bladder leakage to my husband. He was shocked. I guess guys don’t have to worry about it as much on the account that they don’t carry children on their bladders. Lucky them. I have always had Poise MicroLiners but was interested in trying Impressa. My husband just gave me the blank stare that men do when you talk about “women issues”.


I have a brand new Walmart close to my home. It’s so pretty. The Impressa Sizing Kit was sitting on the shelf begging me to pick it up and try it. I loved that the sizing kit comes with 3 different supports so you can find your correct size. Impressa Bladder Supports are a non-absorbent, removable product that helps stop bladder leaks before they happen and  are inserted into the vagina like a tampon to gently lift and give support to the urethra. This added support to the urethra helps prevent urine from leaking.


Headed home. Tried it. Shocked that I couldn’t feel it. Jumped on my garage treadmill, popped my headphones in (Lady Gaga is the BEST running music) and realized my life just changed.

Ok. FINE. I’ll run since I can no longer use light bladder leakage as an excuse. Thank’s a lot Impressa.
