Gift Guide - Runners

1. Gaiters ($20) – These survived a 100k easily – other brands didn’t. Fun designs and solids!

2. Electrolyte & Calorie Drink Mix ($11-$35)- Stomach-friendly calories and electrolytes for the long run, in one bottle.

3. Headlamp ($70) – I ran mine over with a car and and it still worked. Blindingly bright, optional top strap, blinking rear light, long-lasting rechargeable battery. {Review}

4. Body Disc ($87) – For the injury-prone to those who need high-mileage soft tissue maintenance. {Review}

5. Bun Toasters ($45) – Fact: Your butt gets cold when you run in wintry weather. A worthwhile investment! For the gentlmen: the wind boxer.

7. Mini Foam Roller ($25) – Just pack a lacrosse ball and you’re ready to jet-set.
