Weekly December Running Gift-Away

December 3, 2013

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
~Mother Teresa

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is finding thoughtful and creative ways to make the people I love feel special. As I look back over 2013, I am so grateful to all of you who have come back to runladylike.com week after week to share your running/fitness journeys, to offer encouragement and support and to be such an inspiration to me.

To say thank you, I’m giving away some awesome running gifts every Tuesday during December. I’m hoping I can add to the presents under your tree (or menorah) and help you get ready for a successful 2014.

What holiday running gifts are at the top of your wish list? What is your favorite running or triathlon gadget/gear that you think others should add to their wish list?



Jojo, An indoor trainer is such a game changer for your cycling. I really like my CycleOps Jet Fluid Pro. It can get boring so I enjoy reading my Kindle on my aerobars or watching TV/movie.


I really want some compression socks! I’ve been running long distance for years but have never gotten a pair!


Looking forward to these giveaways, they sound great!

How fun and exciting 🙂

Rachel @ Undercover Diva: A Sitcom

I have compression socks, moisture wicking socks, and gift cards for running shoes on my Christmas list 🙂

I love my ArmPocket arm band and my Garmin as a runners must-have.


I love surprises! Your gift-away sounds fun!

My wish list: a bike (I’m hoping to start triathlon training), gloves with the device pads on fingertips (is there a fancy name for that?), race entries (running is getting expensive).

Compression socks, body glide, garmin (or other GPS device), shoes (that make you run happy ;))


Olivia, I can help you out with at least one of those through my gift-away! Stay tuned for next Tuesday’s treats!!!

Brandy Corrales

My Xmas list consists of new running shoes, a Garmin, compression socks, running clothes and race entries!!! Hope you have a great holiday!!!


Compression socks and sleeves, and smartwool socks are at the top of my list.


Woohoo! What a wonderful way to get the holidays started 🙂

Laura @losingrace

Running/Triathlon Christmas list has some warm running gloves, a new Garmin, aerobars, and warm running socks too!


I have at least one of those items on the swag list 🙂 Hint: Be sure to stop by next Tuesday, Dec. 10 🙂

I think everyone should have a GPS watch with a heart monitor. I love my Garmin Forerunner 110 🙂

As for what I’d like, how about all my race entry fees paid for 🙂


On the top of my list is the garmin 910! I am registered for my first half ironman in April so this would be put to good use!! 🙂


Britton, I LOVE my 910 and I know you will too. Excited for you to do your first half Ironman next year. Can’t wait to hear about how your training goes!

Tina G

how fun!! 🙂 i have a few lists started of what i would like. And since i am not sorking fulltime, really race entries are on it! haha.

Ashley @ BrocBlog

I got a garmin for my birthday in June, I never thought a running watch was very important but I am obsessed with it. I also think recovery tools like a foam roller go overlooked in gear shopping so those are always good presents!


I love my Garmin, I have recommended it to many people looking at watches for physical fitness training. Hoping for an indoor bike for Christmas!!


Can’t get enough gear! I was just looking at GPS watches this morning and hoping I was good enough for Santa to bring me one!

Katie Hughes

So much fun! I All I want for Christmas is some race entries and compression socks 🙂

Amber S.

This winter I’d like to get some good thermal running gloves (easier for holding onto my water bottle than the mittens I’m currently using), another thermal top, and more compression gear (can’t get enough). I’m needy this winter!


I’ve got a new handheld water bottle on my Christmas list! And running socks – so glam!


Nicole, I really like the Amphipod hand-held. I used Nathan for years but I like that with the Amphipod your bottle is on one side of the hand and your pocket/phone/gels are on the other to help with the weight balance. 🙂 I started using it in September and really like it. Happy Holidays!


So much fun!

I’ve been eyeing an Armpocket sport I-20 for a while…
