When I first started running there were no quirky notebooks for runners…and anyway not sure why I would need one – or specially designed hangers for medals to hang from. No silver jewellery imprinted with race times or motivating quotes. No necklaces with charms attached stating how far I had run or wished to run – so I had a look around the wonderous, magical world of t’internet and came up with the following…
A notebook! Yes, dear reader, a notebook…with a difference. It has a label on the front stating that you run! Cost £10 + postage and you can buy this at: notonthehighstreet
Or if you prefer something a bit more motivating, there’s always the ‘Believe Journal’ – from Amazon here: Believe Journal cost is £13.99.
Next up are motivational tags – you can attach these to your laces. So when you reach that point in a race where you’re shuffling, thinking you’re about to die, staring at your feet – you’ll spot these strategically placed tags and you’ll be magically motivated to sprint to the finish! Oh yes.
These are sold on Etsy by: Emma – she does lots of other silver tag printing too. These cost £10 plus shipping.
And here we have a personalised Christmas ornament – okay, I suppose for the runner who has absolutely everything this might be a novelty. So I’ll include it in my list of quirkiness! Again, this can be found on Etsy (I like Etsy!) It is made and sold by: Doodlepopdesigns £10 + shipping.
Then there’s the race medal holders – I have several of these, all groaning with bling, hanging in my downstairs loo! And actually I love them. There are all sorts to choose from – one of mine says ‘Just One More Race’.
I love these arm warmers – printed with whatever logo/message you like and shipped from the US – £13.62 + p&p – maybe we should have some made up for Harri’s Running Team – they come in different colours and are sold by Running on the wall ….now, what could we have printed on them?
Of course there’s always a mug around at Christmas!
This one is is £6.99 +p&p and you can find it here at The Wall Sticker Comp
You can put all these gifts into a Christmas stocking designed especially for runners!
This can be bought from LorraineRDesigns and I think it’s really funky! £13.63 + shipping…odd price though!
