Holiday Gift Guide: For the New Runner

For that friend who's been saying for months that she's going to start running, the student who just joined the track team on a whim, or your newly-committed-to-fitness relative who only has that one ancient pair of cotton sweatpants: help them start out on the right foot (pun intended) with some basics every runner should have.
