Seattle is kind of a funny place to shop local. Amazon is right over there, Starbucks is down the street, and that little company Microsoft is on the other side of the lake. So, if you are looking to shop for a gift for your runner at a not-so-mega-corporate AND local for runners, may I suggest the following:

1. Super Jock and Jill. Friendly and great customer service.

2. Oiselle. Lovely clothes that will make you fast, or at least feel fast.

3. Dream Clinic. Everybody needs a massage and I have never had a bad one here.

4. Run Pretty Far. Fun and pretty clothes for your fun and pretty runner.

5. West Seattle Runner. Tim and Lori are awesome and West Seattle is the ultimate local.
