The Runny Legs Christmas Wishlist

I shared the Bibrave stocking stuffer guide on Monday, and now I’m sharing my personal Christmas wishlist.

I have had a fabulous year, including marrying my soul mate and traveling all over the world and while I don’t need anything, there are always things that I would like to have.

First and foremost on my list?

The new Altra Olympus 2.0 in this super pretty pink/purple color.  I am really excited about these trail shoes.  Altra has made a lot of changes to this model, most importantly a significant drop in the weight of the shoes.  From 10.7 oz for the Olympus 1.5 to 9 oz for the 2.0.  They updated the upper so its softer & more flexible. With the addition of the Vibram outsole, more traction and less weight the Olympus is something I’m super excited to try.

Next up, I know I just got a Garmin Forerunner 225 but if budget was no issue or I won the lottery, I would love love love to have a Fenix 3.  I think it’s so pretty and can be worn not only as a running watch but also an everyday watch.

I love this fenix 3 sapphire in white.  It’s got a 1.2 inch sunlight readable color Chroma display with a high strength domed sapphire lens.  It has outdoor navigation features like a 3 axis compass, an altimeter and baromoter and TracBack feature. (I’m not sure what all that means but it sounds cool).

Really cool is that it has a GPS track log which allows you to create a “bread crumb trail” and mark different locations so your friends and family can follow you on line.  It has built in sensors to show you your heading, your current elevation and weather changes.

While I don’t need any of these cool features I just think this is such a cool watch.  But at $599 it’s a little more than my budget.

Next up…If you follow me on Instagram you know I love Lululemon and my favorite items are Speed Shorts and the whole Run Swiftly line (specifically the tanks and long sleeves).

I’m loving these purple & blue flowered shorts, this heathered berry long sleeve swiftly and this heathered slate swiftly tank is super cool looking.  But I love pretty much anything Lulu.  #luluaddict 😉

And now this is totally off the wall but I would love for Sean to get an entry into UTMB so we can go back to Europe and run the mountains again.  For the record, he has a ton of points so I’m sure if he wanted to he has enough points to register but it’s definitely not a on a whim trip.

I know we were talking about it and if only I had been able to finish the North Face Endurance Challenge in Utah, I would have had a qualifier for OCC race (55k) so we could both have had an chance to run.

After our trip to Avelengo in October, we are both itching to get back to the European mountains.  And one day we will :).

And last on my wishlist…a GoPro so we can video our adventures.  Which one? Ideally the Hero Black or Silver so we had the most features.  And both of those have a 12mp camera.  The higher the better, right?

Outside of the new Olympus, most of these items are a bit of a stretch but a girl can dream, right?

What’s on your Holiday Wishlist?
