Nothing will make the runners in your life happier than some holiday-sponsored fuel for their runs. While they are busy exploring the world by foot, searching for the best viewpoints and finding the hidden gems within the cities, these five gifts will make their journeys all the more enjoyable.
Well, duh! Every runner needs a good pair of running shoes. I love Saucony running shoes. They are quality shoes that are supportive no matter the terrain - city or trails, these shoes got your back and your feet. Around the holidays, runners are usually in need of a new pair of shoes after all clocking their fall mileage in their last pair of sneaks.
2. Insulated Tights
When the temperatures are dropping, motivations to get outside and move also tend to drop. But not with nice, insulated tights that guarantee warmth.! Not only do they keep you snug, but these tights also have an extra storage pocket for keys or some cash for those that also end your run at a new coffee shop or bookstore that you have been wanting to check out!
A crucial winter item for not just the runners in your life, but also for anyone ready to brave the weather. They keep your hands warm and contain the touch-screen technology so your fingers never have to suffer when trying to change a song or send a message.
4. Quarter zip
The quarter zip-up sweatshirt is not just a necessity, but also a fan favorite. Under Armour’s pullover is insulated to prevent freezing sweat while also keeping runners warm.
Running is one of the best ways to travel - whether it's within the city you are living in or when you are out exploring the world. Last winter, I spent eight weeks traversing Europe and in order to really see its cities, I would lock my bag up at the train station and would run to all of the cities’ main sites. This winter, while exploring my new home in New York City, I plan on staying warm with everything above as I hit the streets for some exploring.
