Another gift guide and this time it’s all about the athletes or runners in your life!
This past year I became a runner again. I first took up running right after college while living in New York City and ran for about 10 years – 5ks, 10ks, and 3 marathons. And then I got married, had 3 babies and life sort of got in the way. one day last summer I went out for a run and remembered how much I loved running and after a few weeks I was back! This year I completed 2 marathons and have some big goals heading into 2019. I love the solitude of running, I love the challenge, I love the community and I love the strength I feel after finishing a long run or a hard speed workout.
I handpicked 10 gift ideas for that runner or fitness buff in your life – you may want a few as well. 🙂
I run with these every day and love them. They easily stay in my ears and I can get about 4 hours of running time on a fully charged airpods. If I am going out for a super long run I can easily carry the charging case and recharge them in just a few minutes during a run if needed.
I have been most curious about these and would love a pair! 🙂 They allow you to hear music without obstructing your ears and you can hear the sounds around you which is a great safety perk! They work with bone-conduction by sending sound waves through your cheekbones – it’s pretty mind-blowing how crystal clear the audio sounds without anything covering your ears.
Quick, healthy recipes for the Hangry Athlete. Everything I have made from this cookbook has been delicious and my whole family benefits! You can’t outrun or out exercise a bad diet so all athletes will love and appreciate this cookbook!
Foam rolling is important for runners and all athletes. It can help decrease recovery time, reduce injury and it’s like have a deep-tissue massage every day. Foam rolling is a runners necessity!! There is also a great mini roller for travel – also a great gift idea.
MavenThread multi use headbands are perfect for working out or wearing every day. They are soft, stretch and wick away the sweat. I love that they don’t hurt your head or stretch out and they keep my ears warm in the cooler weather. 🙂
A great gift for anyone but especially your fitness junkie! Just like the previous generation Apple Watch, Series 4 lets you leave your phone at home but still be connected to the outside world (if you opt for the GPS+Cellular version) among other great features.
FlipBelt will help make your life easier whether your running, walking, at the gym or even traveling. It has multiple pockets for your phone, credit card, money and gels. It lays flat against your waist and you don’t even realize you are wearing it. I ran all my long runs and marathons with this and it was perfect – it even fit my sunglasses.
This is a GREAT Sports Bra – no hooks or adjustable straps to worry about, but plenty of fun colors and patterns to enjoy. This affordable bra would make a fun gift and runs true to size.oiselle brand running clothes
Oiselle makes great workout clothes for women runners – soft fabric, great fit and so well made! A few of my favorites – these tights have reflective mesh at the bottom so great for running in the early morning or evening. A good long sleeve tee that wicks away sweat is a must when running in the chillier temps and these luxury track pants are great for post workout . . . a very cozy and fun gift!
Happy Shopping and share any great running or workout gear you love! 🙂
