I am taking a lighter note with my post today! I always find it amusing that people get so wrapped up (pun intended) in the Black Friday shopping frenzy. I realized that runners really have a few advantages, that they might not even be aware of, over non running shoppers. It’s almost not even fair!
We know how to pace ourselves. Black Friday shopping is a marathon not a sprint.
We are used to setting our alarms really early to get to races. Getting ourselves to a store is no sweat.
We know how to carb up for the big event–Thankfully the big meal the day before is perfect.
