While visions of sugar plums dance in the heads of some, runners are a different bunch. Our dreams are more likely to include visions of shoes, spandex, GU and PRs.
In case you need a last-minute gift for a runner on your list, here are a few ideas for items that are sure to make the holiday even brighter.
Saucony Endorphin Racer - These shoes are built for speed. Super lightweight, they easily go from the track to the roads. Plus, the color is fantastic. When it comes to racing, I truly believe the brighter the shoes, the faster you run ;)
Rock 'n' Roll TourPass - Know a runner who likes to run all the races and earn all the bling? A Rock 'n' Roll TourPass is the perfect gift! There are two types: TourPass 3-Pack is good for three Rock 'n' Roll races in 2017. TourPass Global is good for an unlimited number of Rock 'n' Roll race in 2017. Both offer participant perks beyond what is normally offered at the races.
Lululemon Rest Less 1/4 Zip - I absolutely love the subtle print on this 1/4 zip - it looks like one you'd find on a cute winter sweater. It's a perfect piece for layering - add a tank or long sleeve top underneath and/or a jacket on top - and you're ready for pretty much any type of weather winter throws your way.
Legend Compression Sleeves - These sleeves are so versatile - you can wear them during workouts and races or slip them on after to help your legs recover faster. They're also great to wear when traveling. I especially love compression sleeves because you can wear them with whatever type of running socks you prefer. So there's never a concern about them getting in the way of wearing your favorite racing flats!
Roll Recovery R8 - I bought one of these a few years ago at a race expo and it works magic - truly wonderful for getting rid of all the kinks and tight spots. Plus, it's super portable and easy to take with you to the office, gym or to a race!
Momentum Jewelry Motivate Wrap - I have several of these wraps and they are the best for providing a little reminder to keep at it even when the going gets tough. There are many motivating phrases to choose from or you can create a wrap with your recipient's favorite race mantra!
I hope you're all enjoying the holiday season and everything it has to offer!
My question for you: What's on your wish list?
