This week’s topic is: Runner’s Gift List
Here are my 5 recommendations:
- a Watch
If you are a runner, you know how important it is to track your distance and pace especially during a race and training for an important race. I couldn’t survive without one. I have the Garmin 205 which is rather large and I am not sure how long it will last. I would love to have a new one, Santa!
- Running Shoes
“I have too many pairs of running shoes,” said no runner ever! I love my Mizuno Wave Rider 18s that I have in black. It would be nice to get another pair ..in pink?
I have heard a lot about Hokas and how supportive they are. I would love to try them….
- a Running Skirt
I can’t believe that I ever ran in shorts. Skirts are so much more comfortable and they look so much better (especially if you don’t have a perfect body.) Those from Runningskirt.com are my favorite. I love their length and that they have 2 pockets. I have a few but not enough….
I don’t have any from SkirtSports but I think I would like them. They come in cool designs and I have heard that they are comfortable.
- Running Jewelry
Every girl likes bling! And how nice would a charm with a message or commemorating a race distance be…
Having the right socks are almost as important as the right shoes. The only time I don’t wear compression is when is very hot or with capris. I get blisters so I heard that Feetures are a great low sock to buy.
However, my favorite socks are compression ones from Pro Compression.
I wear their Marathon socks and I love them!!
Here are the key features of these socks:
If that’s not enough, here are some more reasons to buy them:
I have worn other compression socks but after I had serious ankle surgery, I was worried about be able to run again. I bought these socks because they boasted that they help reduce swelling and inflammation while providing critical support to muscles and tendons.
Well, I was able to run with no pain and minimal recovery time.
However, why I buy really them is that I NEVER HAVE TIRED LEGS! I have not had any calf issues, shin splints, PF, IT band problems, etc.
In fact after my last 10 mile race, I continued wearing them and walked around a sculpture garden for 5 hours!! Imagine that!
Most recently, I PRed in a pair at a 15K race.
So if you want to buy a pair, enter the code PINK2 at checkout for a 40% discount! (This code is valid thru Dec. 15.)
