I love looking at other bloggers’ Holiday wish lists, so I decided to share mine with you!
Maybe it will give you some ideas for gift giving for your healthy living/run-obsessed friends – or for you to ask for! In my fam, if you don’t provide a list of present options for people to get you, you’re in big trouble.
Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS Watch
Ok, so I didn’t quite ask for this specifically, because it has the price tag is a little steep at $130, but this would be my dream watch. My stopwatch unfortunately
died in Brazil due to a tragic nail polish explosion.
According to amazon.com, this new Garmin Forerunner has:
- High sensitivity GPS receiver
- Records position, speed/pace, distance and calories
- Easy-to-use, button operated
- Virtual Pacer compares current pace to target
- Auto Lap and pause.
Perhaps this one shall have to wait until my birthday. 🙂
- BIC Bands
I am one of those people that has to have everything feeling PERFECT during a run. If my shoelaces aren’t tied at the right level of tightness I have to stop and re-tie. I know, I’m slightly cray cray, but please tell me you do this too!
Anyway, I’m the same way about my hair during a run. It MUST be out of my face. My friend Mal got me a BIC Band for my birthday last year, and now I can’t run without one! They stay in place so you don’t have to be constantly messing with your ponytail like I am forever messing with my running wedgies. Sorry in advance to anyone ever running behind me on a treadmill.
Not only are BIC Bands cute and relatively inexpensive, a portion of funds are donated to charity.
Speaking of running wedgies these are apparently the solution to them.
- Oiselle Roga Shorts
Many runners swear by them – the only problem is that they’re about the same price as my monthly electric bill. I guess lights and heat are more important in my life than not having running wedgies (right now.)
- Magazine subscription to Runner’s World
- Foam Roller
I have grown tired of using the one at the gym, especially after sweaty people. Gross. I would also like to foam roll with a glass of wine in hand for the entirety of every Real Housewives episode.
- Chia Seeds
Let’s cut to the chase: chia seeds are damn expensive. Instead of buying a packet of chia seeds from Whole Foods that will last you 10 overnight oat jars for $12.99, order them in bulk here like my Mom does.
What is on YOUR healthy living Holiday wish list?

and just what causes a (tragic) nail polish explosion?
It exploded in my suitcase! Luckily it was in a travel bag.
