the terrible and wonderful reasons why I run long distancesThe Terrible and Wonderful Reasons Why I Run Long Distances, $11

Whether it’s your best friend who doesn’t understand why you run 15 miles every other Saturday—or your best friend who’s running her tenth marathon this spring—this new book by Matthew Inman, AKA The Oatmeal, is filled with comics and stories about running, including one cartoonist’s reasons for jogging across mountains until his toenails fall off.

Help a fitness-fiend in your life join the fitness tracker craze. Jawbone’s latest activity tracker follows your steps, calories, and how much you sleep, and is super reasonably priced.

dagne-dover-tote-gifts-fitness-holiday-giftDagne Dover Tote, $265

This bag is a boutique fitness lover’s dream (and the answer to my toting wishes). It has a water bottle compartment inside (which could double as a juice holder?), a laptop pouch (for a 15″ computer), and still has room for sneakers. It totally solves that I’m-carrying-three-bags-with-me-again feeling. Oh, and, it’s totally chic, too.
