  1. Recently found your podcast, and I’ve really enjoyed listening to them for the past few months. Just a word of advice about the pedicure suggestion as a gift for runners. I agree pedicures are great–just be sure not to have your calluses removed! Those calluses are hard earned and necessary, and running on soft feet after will hurt. Otherwise, awesome gift suggestions. Keep up the great work on the fun podcasts!

  2. Until you get a RoadID you can make a pet tag at a pet store and engrave it with your contact info and loop it through your shoelace. I think I paid under $5 for one and you don’t have to get a bone shape. 🙂 Happy New Year runnergirls.
