Gifts for a triathlete who seems to have everything?

A triathlete friend of mine has been serving, for free, as my running coach for a while, and it's time to say thank you—with presents. But what?

She's a hardcore triathlete who, as far as I can tell, has all the serious sports-related goodies she needs (see: an elite coach, a tricked out Garmin + accessories, a Road ID, appropriate attire, special water bottle cage systems, etc.). What exciting, special, would-love-to-have-but-wouldn't-buy-for-yourself kinds of things could I get her to say thanks for sticking with me through these first few slow, plodding months of running?
Possibly relevant: she's a data-driven, tech-savvy, math geek/foodie who has given me lots of presents, encouragement, advice, tough love, and hugs at the finish line over the past few months. Ordinarily I'd get take her out for drinks and call it a day, but if there's something more specifically sports-related I can do, I'd love to go in that direction.
No strict price limit; more interested in the full range of possibilities than in sticking to a specific budget.
