2016 Runner Gift Guide

  1. Running Shoes –  The Hubby recently bought a pair of Hokas for the first time and he absolutely loves them. He swears he’ll never go back to another shoe. He even has a few friends hooked on them. Me, I still love my New Balance running shoes and have several pairs in my closet. You can never have too many running shoes. Am I Right?
  2. Nathan Insulated Quick Shot –  This is my go to Saturday long run water bottle. I like that I don’t have to hold on to anything. I can still run with my hands open and the water bottle just sits on my hand. It’s the perfect amount of water for a long run just to have those little sips here and there.
  3. Sport Beans – These little Jelly Belly Sport Beans rock as my racing nutrition of choice for running. Easy to carry, easy to chew and work well.
  4. Nuun – My hydration of choice! I am a 2016 Nuun Ambassador afterall. But, even before that, Nuum was my electrolyte of choice. The tabs are easy to carry, the flavors taste good and I can add as much or as little to my water as I want.[Tweet “I’m Crusing My Goals with @poweredbybling and @JournalMenu #CrossYourFinishLines”]
  5. Journal Menu– I love my Journal Menu. I’ve always tracked my workouts, especially my strength training, in a notebook. When I found Journal Menu last year, I fell in love. I was able to design my own custom cover and pick the content pages inside. This really helped me track my workouts. I also love having the pace charts as a reference so I can set interval training workouts easily. I just ordered my 2017 Journal Menu to help me crush my 2017 goals. I can’t wait to share those with you guys in my 2017 goals post! Journal Menu is offering my readers a great discount again this year. Use Code BLINGPOWER for 15% off! They are also sponsoring the giveaway at the end of this post, so make sure to enter for your chance to win your own custom journal! #CrossYourFinishLines2016 Triathlete Gift Guide
  6. Bib Coaster –  This is a great novelty gift for the runner in your life. If you can snag one of their race bibs, you can make a great keepsake for them.
  7. Magazine Subscription – Women’s Running and Runners World are two great runner magazines. A yearly subscription to either or both makes a great gift.
  8. The Massager Stick – This is a mini version of the foam roller. It’s easy to travel with and for such a small footprint works wonders to work out those tough spots. The Hubby swears by his foam rolling regimen!
  9. Nathan Reflective vest – Reflective vests are extremely important whenever an athlete is in traffic.  This goes hand-in-hand with safety during night running.
  10. Custom USA Race Chart or Route Map – Do you have a runner in your life running all 50 states? Gift them a USA map to track their progress. If they’ve run a PR on a course, a custom route map makes a great gift.
  11. Under Armour Infrared Hood –  The Hubby and I both own one of these. If you or the runner in your life do any cold weather running, this Infrared Hood is a MUST HAVE! It keep the wind off your neck and your ears and face protected. I probably wouldn’t ever cold weather run if this hood didn’t exist.
  12. RoadID –  If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know safety in training is a top priority to me. I bought The Hubby, Mini Me and myself RoadIDs for Valentine’s Day when they first came on the market. This is a great safety gear item for any athlete. They are even starting to make tags that fit on some of the GPS and fitness tracker watches.

I hope this year’s gift guide has sparked some excitement for the perfect gift for the triathlete in your life. Don’t forget to enter for the chance to win a custom Journal Menu! Whether you’re gifting it or giving yourself an early gift, a Journal Menu will be a great place to track all your goals and workouts for 2017. I just recently looked back over my year and can’t believe the progress I made. Having all that information/data is awesome!
