Black Diamond Spot 325 Headlamp

$40 $20 50% off

Black Diamond’s Spot 325 has all of the traits that made the original Spot so popular (red night vision, multiple power settings, IPX8 waterproof rating) but in a smaller package that weighs just three ounces. It’s not rechargeable (it requires 3 AAA batteries, which come included), but its 325 lumens at the highest setting are plenty bright for early morning trail runs and evening sends.

Smartwool Merino 150 Beanie

$22 $15 from Backcountry 31% off

Running in a thick hat is a recipe for overheating at mile two. Opt for this lightweight merino blend that keeps your head and ears warm, but doesn’t trap excessive heat. Thanks to the flat seams and low profile, you can also wear this beanie under helmets while climbing or biking for extra warmth.

Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow. Cookbook

$19 from Amazon

Shalane Flanagan paid special attention to her diet when she was training for the 2017 New York City Marathon—a race she won. Later, she worked with chef Elyse Kopecky to transcribe her nutritional know-how and favorite recipes into this cookbook designed for runners. The authors focus on simple meals and snacks that are nutritionally dense but quick to prepare, so runners can fuel on the go.

BioLite 200 Headlamp

$45

There are more powerful headlamps out there, but it’s the ultralight design of the 200 that makes it especially intriguing for runners. BioLite ditched its external battery design for a more streamlined design where the light and battery are combined in the front panel, and the brand did it without sacrificing weight (it’s just 1.75 ounces.) or comfort—the 200 offers a truly no-bounce run.
