Good gift for triathlon and marathon runners:

I have a good friend who got really into triathlons and marathons in the past year. I'm going to miss his bday celebration this year, so I wanted to get him something he'd appreciate.

Suggestions?

A nice razor and shaving cream. Triathlon people have to shave their legs.

Or a nice running shorts.

Gift card to a Tri/Outdoors store

Seriously, I don't really want anyone buying my training gear.

gift card is safe, something cool like a running/activity gadget or a running watch (example: )

or even a solid pair of running headphones / in ear if he doesn't have good ones

Dicks sporting goods.

Or an Amazon/ebay gift card so he has more options if he wants to. If I were you, I would mail a card with a check $50. Call it a day.

Running warehouse gift card. That's a great place to buy.

Clothes, shoes, accessories.

The problem with getting him gear/clothing is that fit is soooo important. I think a gift card is best in the situation, or like said before, a card with a check.
