Happy Friday! We officially have 10 days until Christmas – just TEN! We’re getting down to the wire! Here are five last minute gifts that any runner would love!
As runners we want to run #alltheraces, but we might not necessarily have money to do that! Any runner would appreciate this gift!
There are many different run clubs across the country and some of them require a yearly membership fee. For example, I have been member of New York Road Runners (NYRR) for the past few years. The yearly membership fee provides a lot of perks, including discounts on races.
Gift Certificate/Gift Card
I know that some people think gift cards are a very impersonal gift but I totally disagree! A gift card to a running store is an awesome gift! It’s hard to know every single item that a runner owns, so a gift card is a great way to give them money to get something that they really need or want.
I know that everything is digital now, but if you’re like me, you still love flipping through magazines. Sure, you can find most running articles online, but is there anything better than flipping through a running magazine on your rest day? Or while taking an Epsom salt bath? I think not!
Why not write out an IOU for the gift of your time? Many runners are parents and might find it difficult to squeeze in runs for their training. Donate your time to babysitting, or cooking a meal, or running errands. All these things can help give a runner more time in their day to fit in a workout, and it would be much appreciated! Not all gifts have to cost money 🙂
