Happy Day After Thanksgiving!
I took a few days off to celebrate. And because I needed the break.
As a holiday week, things were pretty hectic. I ran a rainy Thanksgiving Day 5K with Tricia in the wee hours of the morning,
came home to host a lovely Thanksgiving feast with my parents,
and am cooking one more time for a Friendsgiving extravaganza.
More on that in the weekly wrap on Monday.
So here we are on Black Friday, as non Black Friday people. Neither one of us really enjoy shopping, and none of the things any of us really want for Christmas ever seem to make it to the Black Friday deep discount roster. While I am sure there is a certain thrill to staying up late or going out super early and scooping up doorbusters and the like, it’s not my kind of thrill. I could get behind the post-shopping breakfast, mind you, but other than that, I’m good in my jammies.
That doesn’t mean I’m not taking advantage of some great deals over the next few days. There are some great gifts to be purchased for the runner in your life. The
Aftershokz – $50 off Trekz Titanium Wireless Headphones. If you hadn’t made the leap yet, do it. You won’t be sorry, and at this price, what do you have to lose?
Armpocket – BOGO through Monday, November 27. Armpockets are the only way I carry my phone while running or working out. They are comfortable, constructed beautifully and incredibly durable.
Best Damn Race* – Use code RUNPUGS for $5 off or BLACKFRIDAY2017 for a percentage off any distance in any city. This race is for runners, by runners and consistently provides amazing races with great medals, rocking after parties and all the race fun you could want. I’m looking forward to the Jacksonville and Orlando events in 2018 and hope to see you there!
Eagle Creek – 20% off select travel gear, including some of the Pack-It Sport line!
Garmin – all kinds of discounts on almost every running and multisport wearable, including the Fenix.
Pro Compression – Get two pair of Marathon socks for $40. Graduated compression, awesome colors and patterns, and the perfect price! Stock up!
Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon* – So not an official Black Friday Deal, but code PUGS18 will save you 15% on this fabulous April half and 5K.
Raw Threads – I love these soft and clever shirts and tanks, and at 25% off through Cyber Monday, I know you will too!
Sweaty Bands – Code BLACKFRIDAY2017 will save you 30% off sitewide. You will also receive a free hair tie with purchases over $15.
Are you hitting the stores or the internet this Black Friday – Cyber Monday weekend?
As a runner, what’s your favorite gift to give? How about to receive?

I avoid the crowds and stick to the internet for online bargains. I spent the morning checking out multiple sites, and side-by-side on our laptops my son bought me a new Garmin watch and I bought him a Coach messenger bag. Great deals on both. I like fun little running gifts like socks or fun shoelaces, and would love the gift of a race entry for a small local 5K.

I’m not a fan of hitting the stores for Black Friday either. Thanks for sharing these discounts – I’m always happy to shop from my couch 🙂

I did get out and hit the stores, but not until mid-morning (Friday). My interest in waiting in line at midnight (or earlier) is long gone, but I do enjoy the excitement of finding the authentic good deal (because I know a lot of the “good deals” are just inflated prices that are then marked way down).

I worked today, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t take advantage of the sales! On line…
