Get your holiday shopping done early for your favorite Trail Runner by selecting one of these great gifts. These are all proven winners that will put on an ear to ear grin come Christmas morning!
1. Garmin 235 wrist-based Heart Rate GPS
This is a great mid-range running gps watch. The best part is there is no chest strap needed for the heart rate monitor. So it is super easy for monitoring your heart rate during your runs. Of course it has all the features you need such as lap times, pace and cadence. And you can down load to Strava!
2. Primal Blueprint: Mark Sisson
This is a brand new rewrite of Mark’s best selling 2009 edition of Primal Blueprint. I can’t recommend this book more highly. Most trail runners are fit but not healthy. The Primal Blueprint puts it all together, how to eat and train so you can enjoy the endurance lifestyle in a healthy, sustainable way.
3. Long Fuel Starter Kit: Hammer Nutrition
The starter kit is the bomb for proper fueling for ultra events. Make sure your ultra runner is prepared with gels, sport drinks, electrolytes, recovery drink and my favorite fuel, Perpetuem. You also get their fueling guide so your runner knows what to take when. Best of all, the kit price is discounted and if you use my referral code: 72672 You will receive an additional 15% off!
4. Tribute to the Trails 2017 Calendar
We all look forward every year for this fine collection of the best Glenn Tachiyama trail photos. Not only are the photos stunning and inspirational, all proceeds go to the Washington Trails Association to help preserve our playground. Best of all, each calendar has an entry to win a free race entry!
5. Run Gently Out There: John Morelock
This is a classic trail running read. John put together a collection of random thoughts and experiences while out on the trail. Unfortunately, John now has a serious medical condition and purchasing his wonderful book will help defray his medical expenses.
