“Giving a gift is a universal way to show interest, appreciation, and gratitude, as well as strengthen bonds with others.”
I’ve talked about my preference for giving experiences over gifts, but the truth is we also NEED things as runners and sometimes it’s nice to get them from someone else as a sign that they support our lunacy. YakTrax ($16.80) – We don’t earn our title of being “crazy runners” by avoiding the weather, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be a little safer too. YakTrax fit easily over existing shoes to provide some traction in the winter weather.
Low cut compression socks ($6.99) – You’ve seen plenty of runners in colorful knee high compression socks, but sometimes all we need is something to hug our tired feet. I’ve fallen in love with low cut compression socks to wear during runs and with regular shoes.
SaltStick Electrolyte Capsules ($19.95) – It doesn’t make my must have list every year for no reason! Cramps are the foe of every runner and I’ve seen these help many keep them at bay.
Throw Away Gloves ($9 for 6) – I know you are think, what the h$%*, but every runner has found themselves on a cold starting line wishing they had a pair of gloves…but not an expensive pair they’d need to hold on to for the duration of the race. Nope just a cheap pair they can toss when they warm up.
Runner Ornament ($13.98) – Of course you can decorate the tree with medals, but the rest of the family might prefer to continue seeing ornaments. These are super cute and come in male, female, blonde, brunette, African American.
Running Temporary Tattoo ($10) – Race day can always use a little extra a motivation and being able to put our names on our face or arm or wear 26.2 for the rest of the weekend is a great way to celebrate.
Forward is a Pace ($24.29)- Of course I have to do a shameless plug for these new shirts cause they are both hilarious and cute. Use code RUNTOTHEFINISH to get 10% any shirt which makes it the price listed.
