2. Born to Run, by Christopher McDougall

If there's one thing runners love more than lacing up their sneakers and hitting the road (and turf, grass or trail), it's learning about other runners and their personal experiences. One of the best gift ideas for runners is wrapping up Born to Run, a national best-selling book by Men's Health contributing editor Christopher McDougall. Diving into trail running, hidden running tribes and the forensics behind the human desire to run, it's a book runners won't be able to put down!
