Running Christmas Gifts (Read 943 times)

    Who all is getting running stuff for the holidays? I'm pretty set on all the big running stuff. I have newish shoes. I've had my Garmin 305 for at least a year. I'm really hoping someone will give me some socks. I love my Balega Hidden Comforts and I'm down to my last 2 pair. I don't know where I lose them.

      I usually get a gift card from the local sports store get my running stuff that way.
        I'm about 100% sure that there will be a Forerunner under the tree for me.......
          a pair of running shorts for me. i chose them yesterday Smile
            I think most of my stuff is running gear. Dh and I exchanged gifts last night. He got me Under Armor Frosty women running tights, UA hat and gloves, UA Balcalva, After run really cool U/A fleece pants, and a book called Running Tough. Really could of used some nice socks. But then again maybe my kids got me some Tongue

              Forerunner 305! I can't wait to open it. DH told me about it because he was afraid I would ask my mom for it and I would end up with two of them.

                        That's a great publication. I've only found it once in a book store. I think a subscription is in order. The stories are great.

                        All business

                          I got no running stuff for Christmas, even though i did ask for some....maybe my girlfriend is trying to tell me something? I wanted socks too. My friend Katie says they're a great gift to ask for, but no one wants to be the guy who got you socks.

                            I got 2 Under Armour shirts and an iPod Shuffle! Big grin The Under Armour shirts absolutely rule and I really like the shuffle as well. Since I don't like armbands or belt clips, the Shuffle is easier to run with than my bigger flash based player during fast runs where I don't want anything in my pockets or hands.

                                I got lots of gu's, shot blocks, body glide, a new winter running hat, and an Axe hygiene (shampoo, body wash, deodorant, and spray) set from my oldest daughter. Wonder if she was trying to tell me something? Confused
