Holiday Picks for the Lady Runner/Athlete

It’s no secret that the holidays are bearing down on us. I am always on the hunt for the cool stocking stuffers and little gadgets that make my running life so much easier. Here’s what I came up with for the Lady Runners in your life.

Every girl with hair needs a good headband for her runs. Why not sparkle while you run? I love these Sparkly Soul headbands and the colors are so much fun!

I wanna be a Spiritual Gangster! These tank tops are just the cutest and so soft. I’d wear it with skinny jeans and flip flops, but I guess to a yoga class for some cross training is just as comfy.

Speaking of yoga, this is absolutely my favorite yoga mat EVER. It’s not cushy or soft, but that’s exactly what I like. When I’m practicing, I want to feel the floor beneath my feet. I balance so much better that way.

If you live in a cold, windy climate and your lady runner is an outdoorsy gal, she’ll definitely need a pair of these wind-resistant gloves. The woven ones just don’t compare when you’re out in the below zero temperatures that are bound to plague us from January thru March.

This is my favorite base-layer running shirt that I have ever owned. I have a hard time not buying more every single time lululemon comes out with a new color, but Paris Pink might my “signature color.” NEED. THIS. TOP.

My new favorite race accessory from the Philly Marathon, the SPIBelt. Tiny but flexible, waterproof and light. Bonus: You can pin your race bib to it so you don’t have to ruin your shirt or wonder what to do if you need to strip down a layer mid-race. Awesome!

I wear a few choice necklaces when I race. All of them are from Dogeared and are very meaningful to me. I especially love this sentiment, even if I d’y always feel this way.

Anyone who wants to buy these for me would be my bestest friend forever. Cozy, warm, slide ’em on over your shoes post-run if necessary. Perfect.

If you really want to WOW her, get her a pair of these Cascadia Trail Running Shoes from Brooks. They’re designed for the tough runs out in nature and ideal for the neutral footed lady runner in your life.

 

 

 

 

 

Now go out and run (just as soon as you finish holiday shopping)!

  1. That pink run top I could never do. Although, I have a grey version and wish I had 5 more – they really are the perfect thing. Basically, I love every single pick on this list!

  2. Thanks so much for including my jewelry! LOVING the new pink at Lulu… may need to buy myself a little gift 🙂 And I never leave for a run without a sparkly soul headband. Great list!
