Does Dad like to run? Does he still wear the same shoes that you bought him two years ago? Is that a third toe you see poking through the upper? Is that stain on his shirt growing? Is there a hole in the liner of his shorts!?! If the answer is yes and you’re looking for a better Father’s Day gift than a cold, heartless toolkit, we’ve got you covered. Well, we’ve got Dad covered. You can thank us later. Below our very own Running Warehouse Dads share their go-to running essentials to help inspire your shopping.
Meet Erik, our lead buyer and an avid ultramarathoner. Erik juggles his job and long training runs while raising two adventurous daughters and keeping up with his equally adventurous wife. Since Erik is constantly pressed for time, he squeezes in his runs where he can, often early in the morning or late in the evening, he looks for safe and reflective running gear first.
