How is it that it is already December? Going back to work after a few days off for Thanksgiving Break was exhausting. My kids were still in vacation zone and let me just say that no on was in the mood to work.
This week’s Tuesday Topic: Holiday gifts for runners. You can write about this topic or feel free to post any running related blog post. Remember to Link-up with Kim and Zenaida! Visit at least two of the other linked posts – the more the merrier! Remember to come back for later linkers!

A few things that I like are:
⇒ Balega Socks – I love SmartWool but now am loving Balega socks. My favorite are the ultralight/ultraglide socks. They’re thin but yet cushioned enough to provide enough support.
⇒ Road ID – I never take mine off. Yes, I even shower with it. 🙂 Mine has two of my sisters’ contact information in case of an emergency.
⇒ Gift cards – I get my running shoes from Running Warehouse or Zappos. I love that they offer FREE shipping. If for some reason you change your mind, you can also send them back for free. I run in Brooks shoes and have the Launch, Ghost, and Levitate.
⇒ Garmin watch – So many great ones out there now. I love mine. I have a 225 and have had it for 4 years. Mine is simple and I use it to track my shoes mileage, pace, distance, and time.
⇒ Black Diamond Storm Headlamp – I run in the morning and it is very dark outside. My headlamp is perfect for those mornings.
⇒ Oiselle Lightning Layer – This is one of my favorite Oiselle items. I can wear it over another top or a sports bra. With the vest and the headlamp, for sure you will be seen!
⇒ Koala Clip – It is a pouch that holds your phone, keys, ID, etc. It has a magnetic clip that you clip inside your sports bra. The Koala Clip does not chafe nor does it bounce.
⇒ BibBoards – They’re bib fasteners. The nice thing about these is that you don’t need safety pins hence no holes in your race shirt. There are so many different and fun designs to pick from.
Do you own any of the items I listed above? It not, which one would you like to try?
