If the runner on your gift list loves listening to music on the run, he or she will love this itsy-bitsy iPod shuffle. Although it's only slightly bigger than a quarter, the iPod shuffle has enough storage space for 240 songs (for the 1G Shuffle) or 500 songs (2G Shuffle). It also features a clip on the back, so you can wear it anywhere and not have to worry about holding it in your hand or carrying it in an armband or running belt. Available in fun colors, it's perfect for runners who need a little motivational music.
If you have a long-distance runner on your shopping list, they're running long enough that they need to hydrate on the run. Since finding fluids on the run isn't always easy, many long distance runners use hydration carriers to have their fluids close at hand. Many of the hydration carriers also include pouches that runners can use to carry their food and other long run supplies.
The SPIbelt may look small, but this sleek belt expands and can securely hold an iPod, Blackberry, cell phone, keys, up to five energy gel packs, and other small personal items. The SPIbelt does not bounce, ride or shift while running or doing other activities. It's a must-have for long-distance runners.

Cold Weather Running Clothes
Many runners run outside all winter long, so they need running clothes that are made for cold-weather running. Look for windproof and waterproof jackets, running shirts and pants made from synthetic fabrics such as polypropylene, running gloves, mittens, and hats designed for runners. Avoid buying clothes made from cotton because they'll stay wet with sweat and chill the runner.
