Baby It’s Cold Outside and a Runner’s Holiday Gift Guide.

7 miles this morning to the tune of some nice chilly temps…I think 40 degree weather is my absolute favorite. It’s just cold enough but not too icy. Running perfection.


Today I’ve got a holiday gift guide for that runner girl or guy in your life…or hey, for yourself! It’s nice to reward yourself every now and again.

Running tights. My favorite tights are the ones with the pockets because you can put your keys or your GU in there and you’re good to go. It’s a win win.

Garmin or Fitbit. Stay motivated with a watch that tracks your distance and calories burned. I am a data nerd and it sure does make a difference having that info right at your fingertips. Check them out here and here.

Compression sleeves and socks. These for me are the icing on the cake when it comes to recovery. They help improve circulation and are even great on the run as well as afterwards.

My favorites! Pro Compression

Handheld water bottle. I love the Camelbaks because they have pockets where again you can stash your stuff in. As you can tell I’m a huge fan of pockets and zippers. All about convenience.

Running gloves. I don’t know about you but these babies are uber important when it comes to running in cold weather. And gloves that are touch screen compatible…even better.

  1. I need those leggings asap!!!! I totally agree with the weather… Anything is better than running in 100* temps. What are your favorite running shoes as far as lasting longer before they start hurting your feet?

      1. YES! They’re the best for sure 🙂 You should be changing out your running shoes every 500 miles or so but again that varies from person to person. I just keep a few pairs around and train and run in maybe 2-3 pairs at a time.
