2014 Holiday Fitness Wish List

It’s that time of the year when my mother asks for my Christmas wish list so I make a blog post with handy dandy links to the product pages for easy online shopping 🙂 Some of these things I already have as I’ve been truly blessed this year but hopefully this inspires you to maybe place them on your wish list this year!


Pro Compression Socks – these are instrumental in keeping me running (literally). I wore compression socks all summer for my races & I wear them at night while recovering. They decrease inflammation and keep me functioning. I’m putting the blue ones on my wish list!

Polar M400 – I’m testing out this device at the moment and if I love it I’ll be buying it for myself this Christmas!

2XU Compression Tights – If you’re looking for a pair of running tights these are my favourite and are actually made for women. Get them on your list for all your winter and spring training.

Mizuno Wave Rider 18 – I love cushioning shoes. After I finish healing my ankle I’m going to start attacking more road running and I’m going to need these bad boys to get me going. I’ve done one run in them so far and adore them. Get them on your list fast for winter training or spring runs!

Fluffed Up Pullover – I love my yellow Lululemon pullover jacket but it’s definitely getting a bit grimy from two seasons of running. Although not the best for visibility I love the new black fluffed-up version Lululemon has out this season!

Original Buff – I received my first buff this year at the 5 Peaks Race Series and then I picked up my own at the last X Man race of the year. A buff can be worn in so many different ways. I am going to wear mine as a neck warmer this winter & I’ve worn it as a headband a couple of times (below is my X Man one)! This is a great stocking stuffer!

Brisk Run Gloves – although I do wear these running these are actually my staple everyday gloves with the phone touch pads. No need to remove mittens on and off while updating social media.

Fitness & Obstacle Race Training

Roots Onesie – after a hard workout or run all I want to do is curl up on the couch. Who wouldn’t want to curl up in this onesie?!

Dirt in Your Skirt Spear Kit – if you’ve ever done a Spartan race you know the spear throw is a killer. Since I would really like to avoid doing burpees in 2015 I want to build a spear-throwing station. Maybe my condo will allow me a spot out back?

Titan Weighted Compression Shirt – ok so in my quest to become more hardcore I want to train with more weight. Although a weighted vest is great for some movements it’s not the best to run in. Cue hardcore music and feast your eyes upon the Titan weighted compression shirt. They only make men’s so I’m hoping the small would fit 🙂

Spartan Race Season Pass or X Man Season Pass – a season pass will allow me to do as many Eastern Canada Spartan races as possible and the X Man pass will allow me to do all three in Quebec next summer!

Pedicure Gift Certificate – let’s face it athletes don’t have the nicest feet and we rarely treat ourselves because we usually don’t know when is the best time for pretty feet based on all we do. But it’s nice to spoil ourselves once in a while.

New Addition: I almost forgot I’ve been crushing on the purse collection by 6 Pack Fitness. I must add the Renee Tote to my wish list! The purse looks better for me carting it to the office & it holds 4 containers vs. 3 in the original small version. They still don’t ship to Canada so I’ll have to patiently wait for this bad boy to arrive in our wonderful country.
