It’s been a pretty quiet week… Not a lot going on… I am thinking this is the calm before the storm. Halloween has past and now all is quiet for a few weeks then the Holiday’s arrive! Then the hustle and bustle begins!! Have you started working on your Christmas wish list? I have been thinking of all the running things I want to add to mine and thought I would share.
Here is my list of stocking stuffer ideas for the runner in your world:
Every runner could use a new pair of earbuds! Check out these yurbuds!
Sport Beans would be a great substitute to the candy that might find it's way into the stockings...
Another option is GU! Salted Caramel... Peppermint Stick... Yes please!
A runner can't have too many pairs of great running socks! Swift Wick are awesome! The Pursuit Zero are made from Merino Wool!
For the early morning runner (like me) or even a late afternoon/evening runner reflective armbands like these from Road Runner, LED wristband like SlapLit or flashing armbands like this LightGUIDE LED Armband would make a great stocking stuffer.
Pepper Spray... You never know when you might need it!
Zensah compression sleeves! Beware though that when you order one of these the quantity really is one... So... If you want one for both legs buy two :)
Running gloves that are touch screen compatible like these from Lululemon!
Actually anything from Lululemon ;)
KT Tape for any aches and pains that might slow you down!
The Grid Foam Roller, yes it is a little big for a stocking but you could place it beside the stocking...
The Grid 2.0 Foam Roller is much too big for the stocking, but maybe you could hang the stocking from it... Just a suggestion ;)
iTunes gift cards are always good! New songs are much needed to keep from getting bored by the same ole' songs
Sunscreen is a must!! Neutrogena Baby comes highly recommended by a dermatologic cosmetic surgeon I know who is also a fellow runner.
Brooks Seamless Arm Warmers are great if you are running when it's not quite cold enough for long sleeves but the chilly start warrants some extra coverage. These can come off and into a pocket quick mid stride!
Road ID, I hope I would never need this but I imagine it is invaluable in some situations.
If good ole' St. Nick is feeling splurgy here are a couple BIG ideas:
Spa or Massage Gift Card
Ok Ok the Garmin Forerunner 110 would suffice ;)
Actually the great thing about running is that it really is an inexpensive sport, the items above are just nice to have but totally optional! Really all you need is a pair of running shoes and the great outdoors :) All you need is Run!
