    • Ok thanks (TYPO)! Mostly I just want to get running again! In a few days I’m going to do a jumping test to see if I pass (like what I did in PT to get ‘cleared’ for running). If all goes well, then I’ll start walk/run program by christmas!

    • Thanks! And glad your first issue came! I got mine about a week ago, but haven’t had time to devour it yet (been too busy with end of semester student stuff), but can’t wait to read it starting Tuesday!

      • I have not started reading yet either. I have to get better about balancing blogging so I can read more. Before I became a blogger I read every night before bed. Now I just read on weekends. This weekend it will get devoured for sure.

  1. Ummmmmm, I would like one of each, please! No need to gift wrap, I’m not particular. 🙂 Loved reading this list, Nicole, and thanks for supplying the coupon codes. I had no idea that Pro Compression is making tights; looks like I need to start saving. I love Pro Compression and I’ve been wanting full leg compression gear for after my long runs during marathon training. Merry Christmas, Nicole!

    • Thanks! Hopefully people have used the codes, handy to send the list to someone if a reader wants a particular item and the purchaser can save a little $$! And as for Pro Compression tights, that is exactly why I want them too 🙂

  2. Your products are really looking beautiful this will be helpful when we will spend our holidays. As we know fitness is the most important thing for us. We can do exercise during holidays by using your products. Thanks for sharing here.

    • Well I have about half of the items listed already (I should have said gift guide since it would work for many other ppl too), but as for WANT items, I did get an amazon gift card and bought myself THE STICK! And my mom gave me enough money to buy myself Pro Compression tights when they come out! 🙂 Thanks for asking! What about you?

      • Super jealous you got The Stick! I think I’ve killed my current foam roller so I totally should have put that on my list. I think my favorite present is registration for my third marathon – EEP! So happy that you’re going to be getting the tights, I know they’re going to be super fabulous!!
