Keepsake Gifts for Marathon Runners & Triathletes

Posted by

Last year, my husband ran in the Chicago Marathon. It was the first race he'd ever participated in. He's glad he did it but has no desire to complete a full marathon ever again. This year he's training for the Oakland Triathlon instead.

Until the marathon last year, I didn't realize the amount of intense training that athletes go through to prepare for race day.

Which is why, when October finally rolled around and race day arrived, I decided he needed more than the sense of accomplishment and cool race medal to commemorate the day. I surprised him with a keepsake gift and it meant SO much to him.

As he trains for the upcoming triathlon, I'm thinking about what will show him how much I admire his discipline and dedication. Below, I'm sharing some unique keepsake gift ideas for runners and athletes who have completed a full or half marathon or a triathlon.
