First up, the RaceLACE bracelet.
Description, according to Gone for a Run:
We all need a little motivation sometimes! Our RaceLACE Mantra bracelets have inspiring mantra’s engraved on the aluminum plate to give you the extra motivation you need to get out the door or to push through a tough run. Each bracelet is handmade with a unique adjustable design to comfortably fit any wrist! Choose your mantra and plate color.
Review, according to me:
I LOVE the idea, and I LOVE the aluminum plate. I chose “never never give up”, a mantra that means so much to me in my life, much more so than just in running. The bracelet however….eehhh. I would wear it to a race, no doubt. Even out for a run or to the gym, but not day to day, as it reminded me of those neon friendship bracelets that I wore a bajillion of in 3rd grade.
The RaceLACE mantra bracelet comes in your choice of three slider colors (pink, blue, or black), and five bracelet colors (pink, yellow, red, blue, white), and retails for $14.99 for one of the many pre fabricated designs/mantras. For $19.99 you can customize your mantra, OR turn your slider into an ID/safety bracelet!
Next up, the PonyUP ponytail performance hat.
What Gone for a Run has to say:
Pony Up Performance Beanie Hat. The ponytail opening is in the perfect spot for maximum comfort. Fold up the front panel for a great look and a super comfortable fit. RunTECHNOLOGY performance fabric keeps you warm and wicks away moisture keeping you comfortable. Pony Up hats are perfect for female athletes!

I really like this hat. My little cynical (but I love her to death) sister said something along the lines of “OMG don’t ever wear that hat outside of this house” or something to that effect. Clearly, she felt threatened by my stunning looks in this hat. Or maybe I just embarrassed her. But, it should be noted that she also said she would honestly disown me if I *ever* drive a minivan (I would totally drive a min-van if given the opportunity). Apparently she does not appreciate the awesomeness that is a hat with a hole for your pony tail!
I’m not sure about the rest of you but I have a ton of hair. Like a horse mane. Like, two weeks ago when we went on a tour of the new YMCA while it was under construction, my hard hat would NOT stay on my head because of my hair. So I FULLY appreciate a hat with a hole in it for my pony tail, because it means my hat will stay ON!
I also love that the bottom of the hat is folded up and over, so you can actually roll it down to FULLY cover your ears. The hole in the hat is high enough that it matches where I comfortably wear my ponytail. It’s soft, warm, stays put…and the available sayings are everywhere from motivating to hysterical.
The PonyUP hat is one size fits all, and retails for $17.99 for a plain hat in your choice of black, blue, or pink, or $21.99 for one of the hats with various sayings (over two pages worth to chose from!)
So check them out! I’d love to hear about your favorite item Goneforarun.com has to offer, and what you’d like to see Santa leave under your tree!
