Black Friday Virgin

November 27th, 2009 | Posted by Alison Spath in Breakfast

First the first time in my entire life, I got up early on the day after Thanksgiving to hit up a Black Friday sale. An email from the running store I shop at had some offers that were just too good to pass up.

Well what do you know, I just so happen to be in the market for new running sneakers. Sale sneaks? A group run? Free food? I’ll be there!

The store was packed at 7:30 when I got there and after a half hour trying on sale shoes and elbowing my way through the crowd to the sales line, I got through checkout just in time to leave with the running pack at 8:00.

First Black Friday Experience

I convinced my running friend Shawn to come out and run too, and it was right about this moment that he yelled from across the parking lot “Stop taking pictures and let’s GO!” OK, OK I’m coming!

Time to Run

We did 5 hilly miles through the neighborhood streets around the store and were back in 40 minutes to hit up the free food stash.

I let Shawn have my share of waffles and sausages and I snagged a banana.

To be enjoyed with the PB&J Larabar I’d brought along with me knowing I was going pass on the waffle breakfast offer. Damn straight I’m taking my $.20 banana though – thanks.

Sale shoes, free food and 5 miler? Black Friday isn’t so scary – piece of cake! fruit!
