By Lena Hollmann
As I write this, I am putting away my Halloween decorations and starting to focus on Christmas. And Thanksgiving of course - although the only things I look forward to then are a jam packed race and a sumptuous meal. For me, Christmas is the big one! Because then I get a chance to put presents under the tree, for friends and for myself.

In this column I will suggest some running related gifts that you may want to give or receive during the upcoming holiday season. I will look at four price ranges: Under $20, $20 - $100, $100 - $1,000, and over $1,000. I will give general recommendations only, and will not endorse any specific brands. (Although I do mention a couple of products by name). And I will give you my favorite in each price range.

The award was presented by David Samuel, former southern region director and Arkansas state rep, who said:

"Charley and Lou directed the first ten Arkansas Traveler 100-Milers along with numerous Arkansas Ultra Running Association (AURA) trail runs through the years. Besides being very active in the early years with the Little Rock Roadrunners Club, they were also responsible for the organization of the AURA. Both were recently inducted into the AURA Hall of Fame — and into the Arkansas Roadrunners Hall of Fame many years ago.

"I could spend 10 minutes listing the many running accomplishments by Lou Peyton.
