Every athlete needs a good pair of running shoes. They're essential to train, to run and to get from point A to point B. Though there are so many options to choose from, a light weight breathable shoe is the way to go. Help the athlete in your life reach her goal with a new pair of running shoes.
Editor's Pick: Mizuno Wave Rider 15 Limited Edition, $114.99
If your loved one loves to be active—and stylish—then accessories are the way to go. One key component is safety. Forget the tacky ID tags—that was a thing of the past. Road ID
($19.99) offers stylish bracelets in different colors to fit your athlete's persona.
If you're looking for something more fun, yet practical, why not pick up some headbands. Running or working out with hair in your face is annoying—a sturdy headband keeps hair in its place, and your athlete can focus on her workout. Sweaty Bands ($6) offers cute styles and never slips.
Don't forget a good pair of sunglasses, too. Oakley's Drizzle
, ($130) are perfect for any time of year to keep the sun out of your athlete's eyes. They don't slip or fog up; which is perfect to keep your athlete focused on her training. Running gloves, socks, or hats are perfect for cold-weather running; and are key accessories to perfect a woman's workout attire.

($68) or SKINS A400 Women's Compression Long Tights
($150). Wearing the right attire will help improve your female athlete's performance and recover quickly.
