As the holidays are almost upon us I wanted to share my 5 top gifts for runners. I personally own all of these items and absolutely love them. I think that any runner would be happy to receive one of these awesome items!
1. Flipbelt. This thing is a total savior for anyone that runs. It is super comfortable, holds everything (even my iPhone in the OtterBox case) and is extremely convenient.Every bit as flattering and contoured as the rest of today’s athletic wear, FlipBelt is designed to carry your on-the-go essentials without tying up your hands. Made of a moisture-wicking, spandex-lycra blend, FlipBelt slides right on and sits snug on your hip. No bulk. No bounce. FlipBelt is also machine washable and machine dryable.
They also come in a whole bunch of awesome colors! I have the black one as most of my pants are already super bright and patterned so I didn’t want to totally clash. And to keep items secure, all you have to do is flip the belt inward. Now, everything you need while exercising fits right around your waist.
Cool part is that I have a limited of number of 33% off discount codes to share with some lucky readers. If you would like to purchase this for a runner (or yourself) then just comment below letting me know and I will send you a personal code. There are only a couple of codes so if you are really interested please let me know as they are different for each person
PROCompression socks are equipped with true graduated compression, arch support, have a stabilization zone through sides to mid foot, a wide cuff for added comfort, is moisture wicking and will prevent blisters.
3. Apera Bags. I was introduced to this bag last year and absolutely fell in love with it. I use mine everyday and will be purchasing another one to use as a diaper bag when we have the next kiddo (better than any other diaper bag out there!).
Apera bags are designed to be healthier – with built-in antimicrobial product protection to inhibit the growth of bacterial odors, separation of your wet, sweaty gear from your dry stuff, and venting air to keep your bag dry and suppress odor. And believe me my bag has never smelled in any way. I recommend this bag to everyone!
4. Sweaty Bands. I live in these things! I could never wear the super cute headbands that everyone would get from Nike or Under Armour. I was always so jealous of the girls that seemed to have no problem with those dang things slipping off their heads in a matter of seconds. Maybe I had a funny shaped head?!?! But then came along sweaty bands!! These things never slip and I can’t workout or run without one on now. Plus they come in so many awesome colors and patterns, what’s not to love?!?!
5. Grid Roller. The one piece of equipment that I have a love/hate relationship with. It keeps my muscles happy and helps me to perform my best but man is it painful sometimes! I have had some of my best races when I use this roller on a regular basis and definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone!!
The GRID foam roller is designed with proprietary Distrodensity zones. This three dimensional surface has a variety of widths to replicate the feeling of a massage therapist’s hands. Use the GRID for a self-massage and roll through the tight muscles, knots and kinks that prevent feeling good and moving well. You might curse at it while using it but will thank it later!
