Do you have a runner on your holiday gift list? MotherStucker (a runner herself) recommends “The Runner’s Choice” by Trusted Health Products – MotherLoad Holiday Giving Guide #10: The Runner’s Choice – November is National Running Safety Month and MotherStucker cares about the health and safety of the runners you love.
Runner’s Choice is for the discomfort of sore feet. As low as $16.64 per 60ml bottle (that lasts at least 6 months!), it is designed for people that are on their feet all day or for people who run 3 miles or more at a time. Made in the USA, The Runner’s Choice, is scientifically formulated with 100% natural botanical oils of almond, eucalyptus, eucalytol, wintergreen, peppermint, and spearmint. Unlike many commercial creams and lotions, the botanical oils in The Runner’s Choice are very easily received through the pores in the skin, with simple topical application, and no rubbing.
Order yours here – MotherLoad Holiday Giving Guide #10: The Runner’s Choice – Pass along the safety tips below to your jolly joggers this holiday season!
1. Carry a cell phone – It might feel a bit cumbersome to carry your phone on a run, but in the event you need it and there aren’t other people around it could be a lifesaver.
2. Let someone know where you are going – Before you take off on your run, let someone know where you are going and what time you plan on returning. Tell your husband, send a text to your teenager or send a quick email to a friend letting them know what route you are planning to take and how long you should be out.
3. Light up the night – Runners are hard to see at night and can be easily overlooked by a tired or distracted driver. Wearing reflective clothing and lights makes it much easier for drivers to spot you. Also, wearing a headlamp or carrying a flashlight can help you avoid potholes and other hazards in the road.
4. Listen up – Turn down the music, wear headphones in just one ear or, best yet, don’t listen to music at all. It’s important to hear what is going on around you, especially when it is dark and you can’t see your surroundings as well.
5. Power in numbers – Running with a friend or Fido is not only more fun, but also safer. If you don’t have runner friends or a dog ask a friend to bike along you while you run.
