Mother’s Day Gifts For Your Sporty Mom

Thank you to Road Runner Sports for sponsoring this giveaway! This post may contain affiliate links.

I have the hardest time shopping for my mom. Although having an amazing daughter like me is probably a gift in itself, this Mother’s Day I want to get her something that she’ll actually use. In the last couple of years, she’s become a regular at the gym, she even practices yoga now! So this Mother’s Day, I’ll be heading to Road Runner Sports to pick her up something she can take with her on her workouts.

Here are some of my gift picks for the sporty mom, including my all time favorite sports bra.

Don’t Quit That Running Resolution Just Yet!

Spring is here! Hopefully while you were Spring Cleaning you didn’t throw out that running or walking resolution you made back in January. I’ve been crazy slammed with work lately so I find myself trying to talk myself out of hitting the trails more and more. My only saving grace is my four-legged accountability partner who will tear up my house if he doesn’t get his daily dose of cardio in! Still, I want to stay motivated and nothing helps me do that more than…new gear!

Recently, the team at Road Runner Sports invited me in to join their Running Buddies Team. As a member of the team, I got to head into my local store and try their Shoe Dog fitting service. I’ve been a long time customer of Road Runner Sports, but I’ve never had a professional fitting before. I was so impressed with how technical the whole process was. After analyzing my arch, pressure points and running style a Road Runner Sports team member molded custom insoles to my feet and helped me find the perfect pair of shoes.

The custom insoles are amazing! I was always under the impression that only people with extremely prominent arches or flat feet would benefit from a custom insole. My personality might be a little bit out there, but my feet are quite normal. After getting a few runs in with my new custom insoles, I can’t believe how much of a difference I feel.

Road Runner Shoe Dog

Over the years, I’ve known a ton of people who abandoned running, hiking and even a regular walking routine because they were convinced that they just weren’t built for that kind of activity. Lingering joint pain, blisters, whatever the problem, it’s easy to get discouraged and want to quit. The truth is, most of the time it’s not you that’s the problem, it’s an equipment issue. I highly recommend that everyone invest the time and get properly fitted for shoes. Having the right equipment is a total game changer.

You can find a list of local stores or shop online here. Happy trails!
