2014 Runners Gift Guide

gift guide 2014

My list for runners follows what I give my kids:? something you want, something you need, something you wear and something to read.

1.? Want: Tutus by Shelly Rio Boutique on Etsy.

So many of my readers are of the runDisney variety (holla, Princess runners!) and it’s getting to be that time of year to think costumes.? Walt Disney World Marathon is up next, followed quickly by Star Wars and the Princess Half Marathon weekends.?? You know who you are and if you are looking for a great tutu, PLEASE check out Shelly!

She’s offering my readers a 15% discount code as well: use NOGUILT as checkout to take advantage of a little savings.

Thor rundisney

What I loved:

The feel.? I couldn’t believe how soft these tutus were!? Completely surprised since I was most worried about scratching up my arms.? NOPE.? Ran a 5K with absolutely no problems.? The tutu also stayed put and didn’t budge.? I didn’t even really notice it was there.

Shelly sent me some in child’s sizes too.? Both Claire and #OhLucy got their own sweet tutus!? She can make them in any size- just contact her through her etsy store.

Stay tuned for more information and a giveaway coming this week.

2.? NEED:? NoxGear Tracer360

The sun in Arizona can be brutal.? I’m sure you can substitute the name of any state but I’m not kidding, there is something especially tough about the desert sun.? I try to avoid it when I train as much as possible.

That usually means running early in the morning for me.? In the dark.? Spooky.? And not real safe.

NoxGear sent me a Tracer 360 to review for the Gift Guide.

Noxgear 3

I do not know why I ever though running without this was a good idea.

SAFETY, people!

What I love:

You don’t even notice you are wearing it.? It’s lightweight, uncomplicated, and clearly visible in the dark.? You have multiple settings you can use and the vest sill last for up to 40 hours on a set of 3 AA batteries.

You can also get a discount until December 15th on this product using code NOGUILT at

3.? WEAR:? Janji Running Apparel

Janji sent me a great shirt for inclusion in the guide.? This one is in support of Peru.

I covered their mission before (be sure to read this post for more info on Janji). I still love this company and the gear.

My son does too!? He snagged this one as soon as he saw it.

He loves the softness and says it’s perfect for his baseball workouts.

What I love:

The mission.? It’s amazing what a small company can do for others.? Runners have big hearts and Janji seems to have the biggest!

4.? READ:? Audible Books

I’m cheating a bit here.? I honestly don’t read a lot of books, but I listen to them on Audible constantly.

It counts, right?


I’m not affiliated with Audible in any way, just a passionate user of the product.

I download books to my phone and on those really long training runs where I find myself miles from home and frankly BORED out of my mind, I’ll switch to a book.? They are also great for long car rides or when you need a distraction for a marathon house cleaning session.

What I love:

I never get bored.? With countless options and growing every day, I’m able to find something to keep my mind occupied.? Audible also offers surprise sales that always seem to come at the right time for me!

You can get your library started at

As much as I've tried, I am NOT a runner but this stuff still looks cool! And I'm totally an Audiobook person. Some books are better LISTENED to than read!


Wednesday 26th of November 2014

I'm not a runner either- I just play one on the internet. ;) Audible just rocks.


Tuesday 25th of November 2014

I love your Thor costume and love the tutu! I am thinking about a tutu for Star Wars and am going to check out Shelly Rio on etsy. Thanks for the suggestion.


Tuesday 25th of November 2014

Shelly has some additional Star Wars options coming this week! Be sure to contact her if there's something specific you are looking for. She's great to work with!

I need ot get off my duffer and subscribe to Audible. And I need that NoxGear. I must look into it!


Tuesday 25th of November 2014

Both are big pluses in my life. Love how light and bright the NoxGear is for running or walking.

I'm in love with all of these! You know I love my Janji tank I got when you did your review last time. I literally run in it at least once a week. And I drive to work at 6am (before dawn) and I get home after 6pm (after dark this time of year), so I really appreciate the runners in my neighborhood who wear the NoxGear. I've even seen a few people walking their dogs who have them on and it's so much more visible than just regular reflective gear. I cancelled my audible subscription after about four years as a budget cutting measure and I think I'm about to resubscribe because I adore my audiobooks! Great list!!

Since I don't buy books- or pay overdue library fees (ahem)- I figure it's a wash. LOL You could also ask for someone to buy you a few credits for Christmas!
