100 Gifts for Runners

From Fitness Monitoring Watches to Bass Pumping Headphones

— December 15, 2012 — Lifestyle
This list of Christmas gifts for runners includes a variety of items like fitness monitors, running shoes and headphones.

There really isn't that much you need to go running, but you want the best of the things you do need. A good pair of shoes is where it all starts when it comes to gifts for runners. Without a solid pair of running shoes, it doesn't matter how good your music selection or headphones are, because you won't be hearing anything but the pounding sound coming from your feet. A good running shoe is one that is light, but has sufficient cushion (especially if you're street running.)

Fitness monitors are becoming increasingly popular gifts for runners. It's not enough to put on your shoes and start jogging anymore, so these kind of devices help you track your progress and reach your goals.
