adidas Women's Sequencials Climaheat Long Tight

The best winter running gear is light weight, non bulky, not at all restrictive, and warm! For me, any temps under freezing call for the Climaheat gear. These tights move with you, and help keep the muscles performing no matter the chill!


A great stocking stuffer, useful velcro tabs to hold your shoelaces in place while running. We all work way too hard to not control everything we can come race day. Don’t let loose laces keep you from meeting your goals in 2017! (Tons of colors, designs, and an option for custom logos!)

Powerbar Products

Fuel your way to success in 2017! Try the new powerbar protein bars, or fruit gels, or stick with your favorite traditional peanut butter energy bar. No matter your preference, Powerbar has you covered.


The best cross training tool on the market! You can train like me and incorporate the elliptiGO into your weekly routine.

Iron Doggy Hands Free Dog Leashes

If your pup wants to be like Strider, get an Iron Doggy leash! Hands free leash so you can run with your pal.

adidas Excalate Sunglasses

Besides my running shoes, my top accessory I can’t run without is my Adidas sunglasses! There is a lot happening with the new line, and 2017 is going to be an exciting year for those who love shades.

adidas Energy Boost 3

New shoes for a New Year! Every training run I do is in these guys! If you’re a neutral foot, give the Energy Boost a try.

Believe I Am Training Journals

Every year, I ask my mother-in-law for this training log as my Christmas gift. I then use it every single day until the next Christmas comes along. Recording your training allows you to track progress and builds confidence.

Run Fast Eat Slow Cookbook

This also found it’s way onto my Christmas list. We all try to set the goal of eating healthier next year.. Actually make it happen with these great recipes.

The Gift of Coaching

Give the gift of personal coaching! Let your love one know you support their goals for 2017 with coaching services provided by yours truly (shameless plug for Get Running)
