‘Tis the season, right!?  It is ALMOST December, and let’s be honest, taking a bit of time away after all of the turkey day festivities to shop isn’t TOOOO bad, so, I come to you with the best running gifts for runners!  As always, thanks for the blog love!screen-shot-2016-11-27-at-11-21-10-am

  1. TIGER TAIL! ($29.95)-  Guys, I don’t always stretch, but when I do I use the Tiger Tail.  Truly.  This is the best (that I have found) muscle roller/stretcher and would be suitable for ANY runner or work-outer.  AND it is less than $30! Fits well in the stocking too…Just saying’!         screen-shot-2016-11-27-at-11-14-52-am
  2. Personalized Medal Holder-
  3. A pair of Newtons– DUH!  Getting a running buddy hooked on this brand is THE best thing you can do for him or her!                                            IMG_0135
  4. Super Socks ($9.99)- I LOVE these socks.  They have awesome inspirational sayings on them like “She believed she could so she did.”  I also like the “bad ass” ones 😉  There are SO many different colors and sayings that any runner (or non-runner) would LOVE!                               screen-shot-2016-11-18-at-3-51-56-pm
  5. “C is for Chafing” ($11.99)- I do NOT have this book but NEED it. I found it in my research and it looks AWESOME!  From AmazonWhether you’re a child, a child at heart, or just childish, you’ll enjoy “C is for Chafing”–a kid-friendly running book that covers the good (E is for Endorphins) the bad (B is for Blister), and the ugly (O is for “Oh, No…”).  HYSTERICAL!                                                                          screen-shot-2016-11-18-at-3-53-42-pm
  6. Yurbuds Earphones (prices vary)- These are by far THE best earbuds I have EVER worn.  I have used them for over five years now, finding them first (before their popularity) at a race Expo.  They have different sized buds that come with the pair that are guaranteed to fit any runner.  And they DO NOT come out.  I swear.
  7. This shirt-   You can get in tank, Mens or Woman’s and I LOVE mine. “I run because punching people is frowned upon. SOOO true 🙂  Any runner is sure to agree or at least get a kick out of this one!                                         fullsizerender
  8. My favorite Cross-Trainer:  I know, I’ve shilled this baby before but I can’t tell you how much I LOVE this In-Motion strider.  And now it is less thank $85!  I have been using it almost daily for a bit during the boys’ naps to loosen my legs.  I can turn up the resistance to get a little muscular action in.  It stores super easily and is tiny but packs a big punch!                                  Screen Shot 2016-03-17 at 5.14.19 PM
  9. Road ID- I just came across mine in my running bin the other day and realized I have NOT been wearing it as I should.  Hell, the other day when I took a major spill, things could’ve been worse, and without my Road ID, I never would have been identified.  This is an essential gift and I can’t stress enough how important it is for anyone who trains or does any sort of outdoor activity.
  10. The Flip Belt- I only wear belts when doing races, but I think it is super important for any runner to invest in one that works for THEM. I have found that the best running belt for any runner can be individual to the runner, but the Flip Belt is by far the most versatile one Ive tried and had success with. I HATE the flopping around that other belts can produce, so when I tried the flip belt and it DID NOT flap around or weigh me down, I knew it was the belt for me!  It hold my phone comfortably and allows the headphones to hang out so I can still use them.  It also hold my fuel (I am usually a shot Blok girl), a piece of gum, and my ROAD ID.                         Screen Shot 2015-05-15 at 9.39.14 AM
