What NOT to give me for Christmas – A Runner’s List

Dr. Daily from Runner’s World has a great post about holiday gift buying for runners. Along with his good ideas, is a hilarious list of things runners would absolutely NOT want. Check it out.

“Long Run” Simulator Kit, $4

Dr. Daily says: “No time to get in your long run? No problem. Just vigorously apply these specially formulated sheets to underarms, nipples, and crotch area. Your friends will never know the difference.”


Yoda Mat, $50

Dr. Daily says: “Better than a yoga mat, and it’ll probably see a lot more use. Regret this purchase you will not.”


Sparklers, $38 per case (288 count)
Dr. Daily says: “Invaluable for running in the dark. That price is for a case of 288, or about enough for one 5-mile run.”

Quote of the day

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is today.”

~~Chinese Proverb

Even if you didn’t start your running 20 years ago, you can still start today.

And if you are a 20 year veteran, maybe you can water a nearby sapling.
