These are available in various colors, but you simply cannot beat the comfort and quality of these socks. It is worth every penny not to bleed through your shoes during a race.

What an interesting coincidence that both running shoe and cell phone designs have swung from small and minimalist to maximalist. Now that phones are large again, Dad will need a new armband holder.

I am fascinated with the sleek design of this personal safety device. I see this a a great tool for anyone, and particularly someone who travels alot who wishes to get out and go for a run in unknown places. Ladies, while you are at it, order one for yourself. And your sister. And your daughter.

How about a subscription to Running Times magazine? A little light reading with beautiful photos, this one is a crowd pleaser for runners who take the road(s) less traveled.

Hal Koerner’s Field Guide to Ultrarunning: Training for an Ultramarathon, from 50K to 100 Miles and Beyond

Hal has a few notable buckles on his ultramarathon running belt, namely Hard Rock 100 and a few Western States titles…. No big deal. I had the pleasure of meeting Hal when my  little guy flirted with his two year old daughter on the swing set in our local park (have I mentioned that I live in an elite running mecca down here in Southern Oregon?). In addition to being an incredible athlete, he is simply a nice guy. His guide offers first hand insight into winning tips for ultrarunning.

Petzl TIKKINA 60 lumens, Green

A great headlamp is motivation to get one’s behind out of bed when it is dark out, and they are  must for all of the fun overnight relay races coming up this summer.

Look for an upcoming list of gifts for the Gluten Free Dad as well!

Take care, and make your day great!
