When you’re shopping for a runner, what is a gift they are sure to love?
On the surface, that sounds like a pretty easy question.
As an example, runners need shoes, so a new pair of running shoes would make a great gift, right?
If you get the “right” shoes for the runner that you’re shopping for, then a new pair of shoes is an amazing gift! The problem is, there are roughly 4,723,289 different running shoes available and only 1 or 2 of those would be the “right” shoe.
As a runner, I can confidently say that if you got me a brand new pair of shoes that weren’t one or two specific styles of a particular brand I would NEVER wear them running.
As runners, we are peculiar like that.
And here’s the really bad news, we are peculiar about all of our gear that we use on a regular basis.
Clothes, gels, shoes, drinks…
There are, however, some gifts that work for most runners no matter what their particular peculiarities happen to be.
