Christmas Shopping for Runners

Having trouble finding the PERFECT gift for your runner spouse, sibling, or BFF? Look no further!!! These are my MUST have items to be looking and feeling great on race day.

1. Sparkle skirt.

It is true. I have been known to rock a many sparkle skirts in my day. They are fairly inexpensive ($25) and so darn cute. I get complements from spectators EVERY race I wear my sparkle skirts to!

2. Run Pretty Far arm sleeves

I have worn these babies to several races. I get so dang hot when I run, but ESPECIALLY in Sea town, it can be super chilly at the start. That is where arm sleeves are perfection. You can easily roll them down or slide them off. At RNR Seattle this year, I took these off at mile 3 and tied them to my fuel belt. It was AWESOME!

3. Sweat Pink Tank

I am obsessed with this tank. I wear it all over the place. It is comfy and well, let’s face it… Seriously cute!!!

4. Handheld water bottle.

I carry my handheld water bottle on all my shorter runs. Anything 6 miles or less is perfection. It easily holds my car keys, ID, sport beans, etc. Plus, it is pink. I bought mine from Sports Authority. It is IronGirl brand and I love it!

5. SpiBelt.

It is no secret that I love my SpiBelt. Since getting it for Ragnar, I have worn it on training runs and to races. I am super paranoid about safety, so it holds my phone, ID, money, keys, etc. it is amazing what you can fit in this thing. The one I have is yellow, but I really want to get a black and pink one too!!

6. Awesome spandex shorts.

Let’s face it. Every runner needs awesome spandex shorts. Like, NEEDS them. I got mine at Target!

7. NUUN!!!

Oh, how I love me some Nuun. I absolutely swear by this stuff. It provides my body all the goodies I need and leaves out all that sugary crap that I don’t. My favorite favors are LemonLime, Pink Lemonade, and Tri-Berry! It’s a GREAT stocking stuffer! Also recommended, “Lemon Tea” in a Nuun sports bottle. πŸ˜‰

8. Aspaeris Pivot Compression Shorts

These bad boys are nicknamed “magic pants” for a good reason. I am telling you… They work WONDERS. I was sooo skeptical of the whole compression thing until I tried these for myself. I wore them after the RNR Seattle AND during the Ragnar relay. I had next to ZERO muscle soreness the next day, which is SO not like me. I am ALWAYS sore after big races. I am SO sold on these bad boys.

9. Zensah Compression socks

I have both Zensah compression sleeves and compression socks. I love them both so dearly. I will even wear them under my work clothes the day after a long run. No one at work will even know AND your legs will be thanking you later.

10. Last but not least, Sweat Pink shoe laces.

Oh, how I love my Sweat Pink shoe laces. These are a major statement piece. They are guaranteed to make those boring running shoes go from drab to fab in an instant! And they are CHEAP! Can’t beat em!!

Now, hurry and go shop!! Time is running out to have these packages delivered to your door!!!

Note: I was not asked to write about any of these products. These are truly my favorite go-to running items and I love them all.
