Studies show that lack of adequate sleep can lead to injury and in fact, runners were 170% more likely to get injured! What the HECK!? Lagoon has helped me improve my sleep immensely by pairing me with the performance pillow that has everything I need. I fall asleep faster, my data points are better, and more importantly, I feel better! After taking the 2 minute quiz I was matched with the Otter pillow (#teamotter), and my husband Charlie uses the Fox pillow (#teamfox), which fits… I think he is quite the fox. Even Elite Runners Emma Bates (#teamotter), Cory McGee (#teamchinchilla), and Ben Blankenship (#teamhippo) use Lagoon pillows to help get optimal rest and recovery.
