Most of us have that one person we know who runs their behind like every day.
Every freaking day.
Every day they wake up early and go out and run.
They don’t function right unless they go out and run.
And you find them somewhat annoying cuz…
Well you’re jealous. They work that dang hard and find that running thing easy it seems.
Well at least that’s how I feel.
Jealous cuz I wish I was motivated enough to do what they did 😊
Nah but all joking aside if you have one of those running freak gals in your life and its holiday season or their birthday is coming around…
Buying them gifts that empower their runnin’ behinds isn’t that hard if you think about it.
Lemme give you some ideas on how to gift that runnin’ son of gun in your life

If you know one of those gals who can’t barely go a day without taking a run outside then this is a great gift for her.

Deep Tissue Foam Roller
If a gal is truly a fitness freak, she oughta be just as worried about recovery as she has to do with hittin’ it hardcore in the fitness center or otherwise. Foam rolling has ended up being rather of a pattern in recent years, and it’s for a great reason. It’s worth the time and effort if it helps your recovery and help you in injury avoidance too. She’ll value the truth you care ’bout her recovery proess, trust me. I suggest the TriggerPoint GRID Foam Roller cuz it features a lot of cool functions

This kind of gift further enhances their psycho running of course.
GU is taken in mid-run to supply fuel and should be consumed every 45-60 minutes.
If your runner goes on a great deal of long runs, that means they require a lot of fuel– help them out with a 24 pack of GU from Amazon.
Same concept as GU but a different texture (gummy).Gift a sampler pack, which is 8 Clif Blok bars, in 8 various tastes so your runner can discover the perfect one and not get bored!

Similar to the foam rollers, but more targeted, the muscle roller stick assists in muscle recovery and reduces muscle discomfort.
Runners like this tool cuz it’s super portable and extremely handy for recovery after runs.

Performance socks like Balega are made of wicking material that avoids foot blisters. These things are actually pretty darn neat.
A runner can never ever have too many socks (and these been available in SO numerous colors) so it’s truly among the absolute finest presents for runners ever. Plus they tend to go pretty cheap. So it’s a win win.
