That’s why Stuffitts Shoe Savers are a perfect stocking stuffer for any athlete on your list. Stuffitts are a unique product designed to absorb […]

Holiday Gift Idea: Time

I spent the Thanksgiving holiday with my brother’s family, and since his wife caught the running bug a year ago, she seemed the perfect person to ask for gift ideas for women runners. As a newcomer to the sport, I figured there must be plenty of things that she wants or needs to enhance her […]

What better way to get in the holiday spirit than to give to those in need – and to do so with one of your runner gal pals. Make a commitment together to train and race for a cause. The opportunities for charitable fundraising coupled with running, walking or riding challenges are endless. If there’s […]

Maybe I’m thinking a bit too much about something I’d like to receive for a present – but why not create your own gift-of-the-month foot pampering package? Treat your running sister, best friend, mother, daughter or training partner to a monthly pedicure date – because what athlete does not need help taking care of her […]

Holiday Gift Idea: Runner Ornaments

I spent last weekend in Colorado, where we were hit with 6-8 inches of fresh fluffy snow.

I absolutely love Christmas tree ornaments, and I found these cute running themed decorations that would make a perfect […]

You can create your own tradition in the form of a family fitness challenge, and involve everyone in the fun. Plot out a custom race course. It can simply be a short […]
