Rundies are Oiselle’s day-of-the-week underwear. How cute are these?

$11.60 GU Energy Gel (8 gel packets)

Fuel is a must-have for those longer distances. GU Energy Gel is my go-to. Although these packets are tiny, they work magic and the cost of a few every long run or race really adds up. Recommended flavors: Vanilla Bean, Tri-Berry Chocolate Outrage

$99.00 FitBit One

The point of the Fitbit and other activity monitors is to point out to you what you are — or aren’t — doing. It’s harder to park in the closest spot to the store when you know you are passing up steps on your day’s count. Similarly, if you track your food intake with the device, it’s easier to turn down a second handful of M&Ms when you watch the calories tick up.

The One tracks steps, distance, stairs climbed and calories burned and syncs with bluetooth right to your phone and to your account on fitbit.com. Check out my review here.

So what did I leave off the list? Runners? What is on your wishlist?
