Love the Runner You're With

Sorry about the cheesy title of the post, but I thought it was sort of clever!

Now let's be honest here, I really don't like Valentine's Day that much even after being with Mike. It is just another commercial holiday (really how many of the holidays AREN'T commercialized?), and shouldn't you celebrate your love for someone all the time rather than just one day?

With that said, I thought it would be fun to showcase a few running-related Valentine's Day gifts if you are still searching (or your significant other is) for that perfect gift for the runner in your life.


Oiselle Start Line V-Neck Tee - This shirt showcases each start line, ranging from the 5K distance to an ultra, that the runner in your life has, or will have, tackled.

Saucony Mirage 3s - Who wouldn't want new shoes? And with the upgrade to this fabulous shoe (I might be a little biased) the Mirage 3s would be a perfect addition to your runner's shoe rotation.

Team Sparkle Running Skirts - These skirts are perfect for relays and theme races, plus they come in pink AND red!

Aspaeris Pivot Shorts - These shorts will make any female runner in your life very happy and with the addition of Gen2 shorts they come in a new bright color: pink!

Oiselle Rundies - Instead of lingerie, how about buying your runner some underwear that is running themed? With seven different pairs, she'll never forget what is on her training plan for the day.

PRO Compression Socks - After, and during, those long runs any runner would love to slip on a pair of compression socks. PRO Compression comes in fun bright colors, including marathon pink.

Saucony Kinvara 3s - These shoes are perfect for speed work or those fast 5K races your runner has on his or her schedule this year.

Oiselle Big Run Tee - Who wouldn't want to have this shirt? Your runner can proudly wear a shirt that proclaims her love for the sport of running, and she'll love you that much more for getting it for her.

LiveME LoveME T-shirt - This isn't really running related, but you can wear LiveME's shirts while running. It would make a great shirt for any race that you run in the wonderful state of Maine!

What running-related item would you want to get for Valentine's Day?

  5. If my husband was REALLY going to get me what I wanted, there would be a Garmin 910xt in the box with a big bow - that he'd slide across the table on a dinner date (something we never seem to get around to doing). But I'd be pretty stoked with nearly anything from your picture (except shoes - must buy those myself). From your list, I'd probably pick the compression socks or the shorts.

  6. A race registration is a gift that keeps on giving.

  7. A conversation we recently had:
    Joe," I will never be that guy that buys flowers. It's such a waste of money."
    Me," We've been together 12+ years...I already know this about you. A dozen beautifully arranged running socks would be nice though."

    You're welcome. HA!
