Hey everyone! I can NOT believe it is time for Christmas already! So much to do so little time! Do any of you participate in Black Friday? Not me. I have never done it and I never will. Watching the news about people fighting over things in stores is disgusting to me and has totally taken the real meaning of Christmas away. Seriously, what has become of our society?
I wanted to put together a list of some of my favorite items that would be great for any runner that is in your life. While I am an ambassador for several on the list, I was in no way asked to put them on here, I just truly love their products!
So here goes!
Nuun is my hydration of choice and in my opinion you can’t go wrong. It’s not super sweet like other electrolyte drinks out there and comes in a ton of flavors. It has less than 8 calories and a full electrolyte profile and no sugars or carbs. They even have 3 different kinds: All-day, Active and Energy (with caffeine). And they just came out with Nuun Plus that adds carbohydrates to help eliminate your need for gels!
Retails for $7 a bottle or you can buy in bulk on Amazon for slightly cheaper (affiliate link)
I have not stopped using The Runner’s World Meals on the Run cookbook (affiliate link) since it landed on my doorstep. So many great recipes you can make in under 30 minutes. Check out my full review HERE. I mean seriously amazing, I have not had a bad meal yet. And their first cookbook (affiliate link) is just as great!
Retails for around $20.
3. Race dots
Race dots are little magnets that hold your race bib in place.
I first met the owner at the MCM Expo a year ago and I got to try these out. I’ve worn them for every race ever since. I love them and I love that I don’t have to use safety pins on my nice shirts any more. You can check out my full review HERE.
A 4-pack retails for $19.99
4. Momentum Jewelry
I was a stranger to Momentum jewelry until about 3-4 months ago when I participated in an Instagram Challenge hosted by them. And then I actually won a wrap and wear it all of the time. Momentum jewelry sells Athletic & Inspired jewelry to help keep you motivated. They have everything from bracelets, necklaces, headbands, earrings and Foot Notes. The motivate wraps are my favorite as they are super soft, stretchy, and come in a wide variety of colors. Pick out your motto or phrase of choice and voila. They make for the perfect running accessory and a great reminder on why you should keep going and never give up!
Motivate wrap retails for $18.99. Leather and suede bands are also available for 27.99.
5. Feetures Socks
My favorite sock in the world. Period.Dot.
They have a lifetime guarantee so if at any time you feel like your socks aren’t living up to their standards, you can return them at any time. They come in three cushion levels: Ultra Light, Light and Heavy Cushion. And are also available in Merino wool and Graduated compression! I tried a LOT of socks before I finally landed on these and I will never go back. I have several friends that have blister problems and Feetures socks changed that for them and they can now run blister free!!
Retail for $14.99 a pair.
