Best Black Friday Deals for Runners 2020
We love Black Friday, but hopefully we don’t see frantic crowds fighting their way into Best Buy amidst a huge spike in the pandemic. So whether you miss fighting with strangers over a $60 flat-screen TV or not, we recommend shopping online this year. Thankfully, retailers have made an effort to ensure all the best deals are available online, from the safety of your own home. Check out our favorites here:
Garmin Vivoactive 4s
Garmin created the Vivoactive to compete with the Apple Watch, and in terms of overall fitness tracking functionality, it’s got the Apple Watch beat. Its features include compact built-in GPS, music storage, tons of preloaded workouts, smart notifications, contactless payment, and countless others.
Adidas Ultraboost 20
The Ultraboost has been an iconic Adidas sneaker since its release in 2015. Recently, the shoe has been heavily upgraded, including a more efficient foam and better heel support and stability. This shoe is comfortable and stylish, making it great for both everyday wear and training for your next race.
This is the perfect holiday gift for an athlete who complains of muscle pains. (Don’t we all?) Theragun is one of the best percussive massagers on the market. The massager kit includes 4 easy-to-clean attachments, a travel pouch, and connects to Bluetooth for data-driven custom wellness routines.
New Balance 680v6
The New Balance 680v6 is well known as a great affordable option for those who want a quality mid-range trainer. The shoe is well cushioned, and the responsive foam midsole combined with a relatively tough rubber outsole performed well for shock absorption. This is a great gift for someone hoping to try out running or comfortably grind out miles in a very affordable shoe.
Under Armour Heatgear Leggings
These leggings check all the boxes for a great bottom layer as the weather gets cold. They wick sweat effectively, feature anti-odor fabric, include 4-way stretch for a full range of motion, and are very durable.
Hyperice Vyper 2.0
Foam rollers are the classic recovery tool for runners. The Hyperice Vyper takes the concept of rolling to the next level with high intensity vibration. The vibration is shown to be twice as effective as normal foam rolling, reducing muscle soreness and increasing flexibility and circulation.
