Gifts for the Winter Runner
Just because the nights are getting longer and days are getting colder doesn’t mean you have to stop running. In fact there are many runners who will stop at just about nothing to make sure they get their workout in. Some might spend more time on a treadmill at the gym, but they really would rather be outside pounding the pavement or hitting the trail. The staff at Trailblazer Branford have some gift ideas to help the runner in your life get through the winter.
Brooks Pulse Lite II Glove – The Brooks Pulse Lite II is a lightweight, breathable glove that can be used alone on the nicer days or used as a glove liner in more extreme conditions. An added bonus is that these gloves are touch screen compatible so you can use your smartphone to get that amazing sunrise.
Running Pants – While there are plenty of spandex options out there you can also find some looser fitting running pants. Brooks has a few styles including a thermal running pant and the Marmot Surge Pants are also quiet popular.
