Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics.This week’s Tuesday Topic: Holiday Gifts for Runners! You can write about this or any running related blog post. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
While I love a lot of the “bigger” brands for running items – Under Armour, Nike, Old Navy, Brooks – for this blog post I wanted to feature holiday gifts for runners that are available from small businesses. It’s always important to support your local/small businesses, but it’s even more important this year!
This company provides custom maps for your races. It’s a really nice way to commemorate a race (including virtual ones) – a first marathon, a PR, etc. You can personalize the map by including your name, bib number, date, year and finish time. I have Run Ink custom maps for all of my marathons and I love them! The website also sells holiday ornaments, mugs, posters and stickers.
This is one of my favorite companies if you’re looking for inspirational messages while out on a run, or while doing a workout. Their motivate wraps are perfect for providing an extra push to run harder or finish strong.
If you don’t want to run with a running belt or with your phone in your hand, the koala clip is the perfect option. You can clip it to the back of your sports bra and the cover keeps your phone protected from sweat. I haven’t personally tried out this item yet but I know many runners that have and all the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive.
York Sign Shop
I first found out about York Sign Shop at a race expo when I purchased a “World’s Okayest Runner” shirt from their booth (I thought the shirt was so funny). They sell numerous items including shirts, holiday ornaments, trophy shelves and bib/medal holders.
Tell me: What are your favorite holiday gifts for runners? Do you have a favorite local/small business?
