Mother’s Day is only a few days away, but there is still plenty of time to give the mother runner in your life the perfect running related gift.
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for a Mother Runner
Rub Mom The Right Way
Chances are the Mother Runner in your life is running around trying to manage it all and everyone’s needs before her own. The weight of an entire household and tiny people (or big people if you have older children) on her shoulders is a lot to bare. Therefore, show Mom your gratitude by booking her a deep tissue massage to reduce cortisol levels, repair her muscles as well as clear her mind and rub away all that stress.
Since self-care is so important but often overlooked by Mom, pamper her with a pedicure. For the mom who can’t slip away for an hour massage, a pedicure is the next best thing. A deluxe pedicure will often include an exfoliating sugar scrub and a hot stone massage which is perfect for tight calves. As an added luxury, many salons will even offer a glass of wine while Mom decompresses.
Make Mom Run Around
Most runners have a list of races that they want to run. Chances are you already know your mother runner’s favorite races. So, surprise Mom by registering her for her favorite race.
If by the off chance the mother runner in your life doesn’t have a favorite race, register her for a new one, especially one that celebrates women, such as the ZOOMA Women’s Race Series, the ultimate women’s race – created for women by women.
The ZOOMA founders believe in supporting women and each other’s goals, dreams and aspirations and that belief is felt every step of the way – from training and challenges to ZOOMA race weekend and virtual races.
ZOOMA Women’s Race Series offers five races around the country: Great Lakes (WI), Cape Cod (MA), Amelia Island (FL), Texas Wine Country (TX), Texas Lost Pines (TX). Or, register Mom for a virtual ZOOMA race. Visit zoomarun.com/zooma-race-calendar to find a race, virtual race or challenge that best fits Mom’s calendar.
Keep Mom On Her Toes
For years, I have shared my love for The Walking Company and it’s ABEO shoes. Well, that love now now also includes the ABEO athletic shoes. These shoes are incredibly comfortable and supportive, offering technology comparable to that of many of mother runner favorite running shoes brands.
The ABEO Victory Athletic Shoe has an internal LaunchPad™ designed to provide energy return and comfort during high-impact activities and extended wear. The MaxLite2™ injected EVA midsole offers cushioning with more impact protection between the foot and surface. Ground Control™ wide track outsole provides maximum stability and optimized weight distribution. Plus, an ABEO 3D³ CORE Sport Orthotic is included for customized support.
All of this technology offers an incredible level of all-day support and comfort for walking, running or standing. Given that I have worn this shoe during many different activities from running to blueberry picking, this shoe is Run DMT mother runner approved.
For a more streamlined running shoe, the ABEO Diamond Athletic Shoe delivers gorgeous comfort and my particular favorite. This shoe features a unique responsive outsole designed to return energy, reduce impact on joints and absorb shock. The Diamond also includes the ABEO 3D³ CORE Sport Orthotic to deliver cushioning, durability and breathability for incredible comfort. All of that comfort and cushion makes my feet very happy on the trails and in the gym.
So, this Mother’s Day show Mom your love and support with a mother runner gift that restores and revitalizes her energy.
