Garmin Fenix 6S Sapphire.

Garmin Fenix 6S Sapphire

Dear Santa! What could be better than a watch that is gorgeous and provides every data point for your run. Garmin Fenix goes way beyond just measuring your miles with their multiple navigation systems. The Fenix 6S Sapphire has wrist based heart rate tracking, a pulse ox sensor and even advanced training features like pace pro, music storage and Garmin pay. Not to mention the sapphire adds durability of a scratch resistant lens. Not to mention, it seamlessly pairs with Garmin Connect via bluetooth.


Saucony Endorphin Pro 2.

Saucony Endorphin Pro 2

This shoe is fast and light! This is a powerhouse of a shoe and was built for race day. The new lacing system on the Pro truly gives you that locked-in feel thanks to the extra loophole that is placed in the middle of the shoe. This shoe has a lot to offer from a performance standpoint and Saucony nails it with their design and color combos.


Yeti Rambler 30oz Seafoam.


Nothing will keep your water cold or your hot tea hot longer than the Yeti Rambler. On winter days I will leave hot tea in my car to have when I get back from my long runs at the lake and the Rambler keeps my tea hot for hours. And on summer runs I keep ice water in my car. Even on 90* NC summer days the ice is still there after 2 hours! I don’t have the seafoam color and really hope that Santa thinks I’ve been good this year.


Brooks Carbonite Hoodie.

Omega- Brooks Carbonite Hoodie

I do a lot of night runs since it gets dark so early now and really should be as visible as possible. This hoodie marries fashion and function. And who couldn’t use more pockets on their runs?!


Balega Silver No Show Socks.

Omega- Balega Silver No Show Socks

This is the perfect stocking stuffer for me. I am a bit of a sock snob and will only wear Balega socks. I think the best thing I can say about them is that I have never had a blister while in these socks. Not to mention the “no-show” feature is my favorite design. I will only wear shorts to run in, so I always need the no-show socks
