Holiday Gifts for Runners


Since today is Tuesday, I’m linking up with Zenaida and Kim (Kooky Runner).

The Topic this week is: Holiday Gifts

When your spouse, family members or friends ask what you want for the holidays, here are a few things that you could tell them:

  • A Gift card for Running Shoes

Just because you are not racing doesn’t mean that new shoes won’t spice up your runs.

  • Sunglasses

If you’re like me, you always either lose them or break them.

Love Goodr glasses

  • Socks

Yes, I often lose one and only my good ones.

  • Entry fee to a big race  A Massage Gun

You don’t need a name brand (like Theragun).  There are many out there that are inexpensive.  I have one and it works great!

  • A new GPS Watch

  • A Cool Coffee Mug

  • A Running Book 

There are so many running-related books to choose from…. It’s impossible to have read them all.

  • Bluetooth Headphones

for listening to your favorite tunes or podcasts on the run.  I love my AfterShoks but there are many other brands as well.

  1. A gift card for the local running store!
    It was so funny: every time I changed jobs or something was celebrated, my colleagues always gave me gift cards of the local running store. I still haven’t used them all. 😄

  2. All the good stuff here 😉 We have a local shoe store, but they’ve always had limited running/fitness shoes and gear. I always but my SmartWool socks there…and just found out they now carry Brooks shoes, and my favorite model (the Adrenaline).Score!!!! I have several buffs (from races) that I’d just started using more last year, and now they’re all the rage. That’s definitely good timing!
