25 Gifts for Runners: Day 25

25 Dec

Merry Christmas!!!! I hope that everyone has had a wonderful month of December and that your holidays are spent with those that you love! And for those of you who love runners, today is the final installment of the 25 Gifts for Runners series I’ve been doing here at Marathon Beauty!

25. Entry to Your Runner’s Dream Race. Why not surprise the runner in your life with an entry to his or her dream race! Does she really want to run Big Sur? How about Chicago? While some of the most sought after are only done by lottery (Nike Women’s Marathon & New York), and you have to qualify for Boston, a runner would love it if you bought them an entry into Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles and then made a fun trip out of it!

25 Gifts for Runners: Day 24

24 Dec

We’re almost here! Second to last day!!

24. Pedicure Gift Card. After all of that running, your feet take quite a lot of wear and stop looking as cute as they once did before you took on this amazing though sometimes crazy hobby. An amazing gift to give a runner is a gift certificate for a pedicure. An hour spent rubbing, buffing, massaging and painting those tired feet will make the runner in your life so happy!

25 Gifts for Runners: Day 23

23 Dec

23. Rain Jacket/ Wind Breaker. There are a lot of options on this front, but one piece of gear that makes running in the winter possible is a great waterproof hooded jacket. I wear the old school LL Bean one, but here are a few more fashionable options!

25 Gifts for Runners: Day 22

22. Cute Lounge Wear. While the runner in your life knows what to wear at the gym, and likely has more technical shirts than her closet can hold, it is hard to find great looking lounge clothes. Below are some pieces that are lounge-worthy but not necessarily frumpy looking. P.S. I have no clue why the last picture is acting odd…

25 Gifts for Runners: Day 21

21 Dec

21. Compression Socks. These bad boys are another item I requested. Nothing like telling someone “I’d really like these $60 socks for Christmas, pretty please?” You may be accused of being a running dork, but at least your legs will feel some extra relief after that track session!

25 Gifts for Runners: Day 20

20 Dec

20. Handheld Water Bottle. Once I got one of these, I fell in love. During the hot summer months, I admit I didn’t really want to go out running with my fuel belt when I was only running four miles. To me that was a bit too much gear to have. But, this water bottle is the best as it stays strapped on your hand (so you don’t need to clench it), has finger grooves to help clench, and has a super handy pocket to stash gels. If your runner lives in a warm summer climate I suggest one of these lifesavers.

25 Gifts for Runners: Day 19

19 Dec

19.  Ear Warming Headband. This is another gift I specifically asked my brother to get me (it’s in his price range). While I love running in the winter, I hate cold ears because they always make me feel like I’m going to catch a cold soon. This will help my ears stay warm this winter!
