Holiday Gift Guide for Runners

On the top of my wish list this Christmas is running gear. I just cannot get enough of it, and admittedly always want to look cute when I'm out for a run. There's something about feeling confident in the clothing that you are wearing when you workout that makes you push yourself that much harder.

Here are my top 5 fitness gifts for women who run, featuring Under Armour!

The UA Run Wind Turtleneck has a laminated chest to protect you from the elements for those cold weather runners
Protect your ears against the wind and cold with the UA Mystique Knit Headband (available in 3 colors!)

Keep her comfy with the UA Icon Pant, featuring a hidden drawcord to turn these pants into capris!

Get her excited about running in the spring with the UA HeatGear Sonic See It Through Tank
You can never go wrong with a new pair of running shoes, like the awesome UA Micro G Toxic Six running shoes!

A runner needs three things...tops, bottoms and shoes. Keep her stylish through her running routines with these awesome picks from Under Armour! I bet you'll find yourself under the mistletoe if you do!

Textured Leggings for Women from Under Armour

When choosing my running outfits, I have a pair of simple black leggings that are my go-to running pants. I love the coverage that they give, that my legs aren't chaffing together, and that they are slimming.

But...they're simple. There's no flash, no pizazz and one thing that I am learning is that I like to look cute when I lace up my shoes and head out for a run. {Hello....I match my top with my socks, and my running bra...loser! haha}

So when I saw that Under Armour had a campaign for their leggings, I knew I had to take a gander.

Texture...something that is very important in my artistic life, and I love it when it is used appropriately in clothing. UA has two beautiful textures for their leggings: Herringbone and Snake Skin. Can you imagine just how awesome you would look and feel when running in these stylish leggings?? Incredible!

And since we are going into the colder months, Cold Gear is on my top of my list. I LOVE the Cold Gear Cozy Tights! Designed with extra layers to keep you warm, these leggings are fantastic for runners who like to be outdoors.

And can we talk about color options for a minute? UA has you covered no matter your color preference. The Cold Gear Cozy Tights come in the black/blue combo shown above, but also come in black/silver, black/hot pink, black/light pink, and black/purple!

On the top of my list are definitely the UA CozyLux Snakeskin leggings. I absolutely love the texture and they fit my ecclectic style really well.

8 Fall Essential Women's Fitness Wear Items

One challenge that I am facing right now is how to dress for the cooler weather. I really love running in the evenings, but once the sun is tucked away for the evening, it certainly gets chilly!

Thank goodness that UA has handpicked 8 essential fitness wear items for women to help you transition your outdoor workouts for cooler weather.

The pairings that UA has picked are fantastic. From the Flow Tank for your hot yoga class to the 1/4 Zip for runners who need an awesome layering piece, UA has selected 8 essential items to carry you through the fall season.

My favourite selection is the Icon Pant. These versatile woven pants are proven to perform, and can go from morning run to a trip to the grocery store with their hidden cinch to turn them into crop pants! How clever!

I actually love the entire running outfit, with the UA Still Gotta Have It Bra in hyper green, and Cotton Charged Storm Marble hoodie in tusk. Everything flows really nicely with the entire outfit, and it is perfect for a runner who doesn't want to give in to the cooler weather just yet!
