Can you believe it’s that time of year already?? Santa has asked for my list and I wanted to share some of it with you in case you need ideas for your runner loved ones (or ideas for yourself). I am not going to repeat last years list here (lululemon, zensah, allied medal hanger, joyful bath co) and here (things I have but recommend garmin, stick, Runners World,etc ) but check them out for additional ideas.
You would think I would have everything I could possibly want for running, right? No way Jose. While most of my list to Santa is for my house (sigh, part of being a grown up) I have a few extras that I would like for running.
110% Play Harder: You all know that I love to take ice baths and I try and ice regularly. But I am a girl on the go and this seems like a great solution to my non-stop life. They are a bit pricey and I am not sure what length I would want. The full tights are awesome but at $250 a pop that doesn’t seem reasonable. The knickers are $150 and the shorts $110. Again, not cheap, but compression and ice at the same time. Sweet.
RunningSkirts.com: My newest love of the year. So many patterns, so many choices. Their arm warmers are quite fabulous too. I prefer the athletic skirt with the compression shorts in them (sadly, no matter how small I am, my thighs will always touch). I think the white paisley or black paisley is super cute and so is the super star. After much debate, I believe a size 3…hint, hint Santa.
Erica Sara Designs: I am not one to wear a lot of jewelry. I own a few classic pieces that I wear often. But I would like a necklace from Erica Sara. She makes awesome race bling and it’s custom made for you. I would love to have a necklace with Wineglass Marathon and RNR Savannah on them-this year was my PR year and a great year in running and it would be cool to see a necklace with both race details on it. Maybe the disc with one race on each side? And with the “because I can” long charm? If you ran NY or are planning to-she has great bling for that as well.
I think that a few stocking stuffer ideas would be GU’s (really want to try peanut butter but always use lemon-lime), NUUN (fruit punch, grape), and Sweatybands. I love all three of these things.
Again, my list from last year has great selections-you can never go wrong with Lululemon or a gift card to your local running store but I think these are some great additions to the 2011 list.
What are you asking Santa for this year? Did I miss any of your must haves?
