We’ve got just what they’re looking for!

Written by: Linzay Logan

With 25 days left until Christmas, crunch time is here for buying gifts for everyone on your list. Runners are usually easy to buy for. We like anything and everything to do with running. A new pair of running shoes, running shorts, running socks or running watch are sure to be crowd pleasers. But what about the runner that already has the latest running watch and has more running shoes, socks and shorts than they know what to do with? These personalized, crafty running gifts might be exactly what you’ve been looking for.

The Tiffany and Co. necklace handed out in lieu of medals at the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco might be the most wanted piece of jewelry for female runners, but for those not interested in the unforgiving hills of the city by the bay, running jewelry is just as good. Many companies make necklaces and bracelets for runners and triathletes with encouraging quotes and cute engravings. We also love the Endure Shop’s cufflinks and triathlon ornament by Milestone Jewelry.

Personalized Training Plan

Find out your runner’s running goals and preferred training method and a running coach can develop an individualized training plan. Depending on the coach, the plan can cost any where from $50 to $500.
