It’s Black Friday, and we are here again to runfess and lay it all out there.
Let’s join up with Marcia’s Healthy Slice for a shop-til-you-drop edition of Runfessions!
That I’ve never been into Black Friday. I usually don’t shop very often, and the idea of chasing after random sales with thousands of other people just doesn’t feel like my jam. Now, I do admit that it sounds like it could be fun to be out all night after Thanksgiving, and wrapping up with a big breakfast, but obviously this is not the year to try. I’ll be sticking to online shopping for the next week.
That even with that admission, I’ve been shopping quite a bit this week. Now that most of our furniture is here, I’m going crazy getting accent pieces and replacing older elements in our home. I just found some cute things for our new coffee table, and I finally replaced all our prep bowls, measuring cups, and spoons. Regrets? Not a one.
That Delilah gave us quite the scare this week. Mr PugRunner was delirious with worry, and I was incredibly nervous about the prognosis. We are VERY lucky that she has improved so well, and the vet sees no reason that she won’t continue on this path. Huge sigh of relief, and lots of cuddles for this beautiful baby.
That it sucked not running an in-person Turkey Trot this year. The one closest to my house was canceled entirely, and the next closest one was supposed to have about 2000 people, which felt like way too many. My friend J and I went out for five miles on our own this morning, and it was a fantastic run, but not quite the same.
That I am READY for the holiday season! I missed out on so much last year with my leg, and now I am ready to up for all of it. I put together a countdown for our family, and I am so looking forward to crossing things off the list. It’s a mix of kindness elements, and fun things for us, so I feel we are getting some balance in the month ahead.
Black Friday runfessions are in the bag. What are you runfessing this Black Friday?
I love your turkey tank! You are way more in the holiday mood than I am. Maybe I’m just too tired from Thanksgiving baking, cooking, and eating. I used to like Black Friday shopping when my kids were younger and it was something to do, but I never was looking for a specific deal.

I have never done Black Free day. I’m working anyway.
Glad Delian is feeling better.
All our Turkey trots were cancelled. I really missed them. But ran the course with others. It was fun but not the same.

I runfess that my virtual TT just wasn’t the same. I’ve managed to make all of my other virtual races special but I just couldn’t get into the spirit with this one. Oh well.

I’ve never been into Black Friday shopping either – the thought of those crazy crowds was always a turnoff to me.
Happy to hear Delilah is doing better!
And, I love your holiday countdown – great mix of fun and giving back!
Awww…so glad your cute little pug is better. It is so worrisome when they are not feeling well! You are up to 5 miles already! that is so cool. Your recovery is amazing. I love your Advent calendar. I should do something like that to help get me in the holiday spirit!
Your living room looks beautiful! The accent pieces are the fun part. So glad sweet Delilah made a solid rebound. Poor sweetie. I runfess I took down Halloween but it’s not yet properly put away. I’ve still got fall stuff up and I can’t bring myself to fully embrace Christmas yet. Who am I??
These are great ideas! Thank you so much for sharing.
And these are all great tips, I like it!
Hope you can make the best of the holiday this year!
