Calling all runners! We love to geek out on running gear and find products that help us move with greater ease. Read below to learn more about our favorite running-related gifts this holiday season.


Brooks Ghost Running Shoes


Ghost 14

The Brooks Ghost line is much beloved for a reason. The new 14s are extra soft with 100% DNA LOFT cushioning. Our go-to sneakers for a smooth, pain-free run. Plus, the Ghost 14s are a carbon neutral shoe!

Garmin Forerunner Watch



The Garmin Forerunner is easy to use, simple to set up, and takes all the guesswork out of training. The GPS smartwatch helps you keep track of your distance, speed, pace, and even heart rate on walks and runs. We love the new Forerunner 55, but all Forerunner models are fantastic.

Trigger Point Ranbow foam roller

Recovery Tool

Grid Foam Roller

Hurts so good! A foam roller is an essential part of any recovery routine. Post-workout, we pop a CBD gummy and roll out sore muscles. The TriggerPoint Grid Foam Roller is extremely durable and has a smaller size option for those looking to bring it on the go. Your body will thank you for committing to foam rolling post-workout, we promise.

Available from $30.00
Purple Oiselle long sleeve athletic shirt


Long Sleeve

Lightweight, soft, and comfortable clothing is key to a happy workout. We love to support Oiselle--a brand by and for women athletes. Their long-sleeve T shirts are a great baselayer for winter runs, and come in a slew of fun colors.

Houdini Jacket

Here in the PNW, winter running necessitates having a solid packable layer for a variety of wet, cold or unseasonably warm weather conditions.

It’s made with 100% recycled nylon and is Fair Trade Certified™ sewn, plus as always, 1% of all Patagonia’s sales go to preservation and restoration of the natural environment!).
