The wish lists were filled with stuff, but not a lot was running related. As far as running goes I usually buy what I need instantly.
“Luckily” my trusted ear buds started breaking down about a month ago, so I asked new ones, with improvements: remote control to play next song and volume control. I like random playlists provided by Google Music but sometimes they can give songs I really don’t want to hear during a run.
A lot of music joy coming in the future 😉
Second gift was something I could not yet bring myself to buying because it was too expensive: ideal for a want-list 😀
A soft flask. It’s the same fabric as a Camelbak and you can drink from it by pressing the bottle and biting the valve, so no tipping your head backwards.
It takes the form of your hand and in your backpack, which is much more comfortable than storing a hard PET bottle against your back.
Once it’s empty it practically takes no place to store it and it’s reusable, so the environment is happy as well.
I’ll enjoy this one.
What did you get for your Christmas? Running gear? Other handy stuff?
I got a new headtorch for Christmas. I’ve had an Alpkit Gamma for the last 3 or 4 years and although it’s fine when running in reasonably well-lit areas with other members of my running club, it’s useless when out in the woods on my own. I’ve planned two endurance races for 2015: Brutal 10 (a 12 hour, 10km pair relay from 9pm-9am) and Adidas Thunder Run (a 24 hour, 10km, 7 person relay), so I needed a good headtorch for running.
In the sales I bought myself a new pair of cycling shoes. I’ve got a tri pair, but they’re very cold in winter, so I’m hoping that these ones keep my feet a bit warmer!
I bought myself a visor, some running clothes, and new running shoes.
