I 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. Why Runners make the best Black Friday Shoppers.
Runners know how to pace ourselves
Black Friday shopping seems to start earlier and earlier each year. It is definitely a marathon not a sprint. Pace yourself accordingly.
Runners are used to setting our alarms really early and getting it done
Runners are used to getting up early and getting it done. Getting ourselves to a store is no sweat.
Runners know how to carb up for the big event
Thankfully the big meal the day before is perfect. Runners are ready to take on shopping like we mean business.
Runners know the right shoes and the right clothes make all the difference in performance
While I now do all of my Black Friday shopping in my PJ’s on my computer, if I had to go to a store I would be dressed for success.
We’ve got the right gear
A race/fuel belt makes the perfect Black Friday accessory. It holds all your credit cards, cash, snacks and drinks.
All of those non runners have no idea who they are up against!!
Honestly, I am not a Black Friday shopper myself. I would rather stay home and shop in my PJ’s. How about you? Black Friday yes or no? What’s on your list? I am looking for some new running gloves and some hats.
