Runners are a special breed- they communicate exclusively in mile splits and race PR's, hoard running shoes and electrolyte gels like nobody's business, and run countless miles to the point of exhaustion simply because they find it fun. While buying gifts for runners can be a daunting task (because how does one get inside the mind of a person who willingly wakes up at 5 AM to run in the freezing cold?!) we decided to make this holiday season a little easier for you by compiling a list of the top ten products that every runner NEEDS in their life. From fun running socks and shirts to impressive medal displays and recovery footwear, you seriously can't go wrong with any item from this list. Happy running, and happy shopping!
