Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and weekend with family and friends. I took nearly the whole week off from blogging. Between being sick the first part of the week and the kids home from school I decided a break was called for. Despite all the sickness in my house I did manage to get out for an easy run in the sunshine on my birthday.
I did zero shopping in the stores over the weekend except to get groceries, but I did some online shopping and spent some birthday money on a HUGE deal on some new running shoes. They were already 50% off and I scored another 30% off on a "Cyber Monday" Amazon deal even though it was Sunday. Now to figure out which pairs to get rid of so my house isn't taken over by running shoes.
Even though I have a lot of retired running shoes I have a hard time getting rid of them since they still have so much possible wear left in them. It is getting a little out of hand though. Part of my rationale for keeping them is that you never know when you need to get a pair muddy. Also wearing the worn out ones out to garden, do yard work etc saves my good ones.
Hoping to get out for a run this morning before the artic front blows a storm in, but I can hear it raining now and freezing cold rainy runs are not my thing. Snow yes, freezing rain...NO!
Sorry you weren't feeling well! Thank god for online shopping, right? I always used to pile up a million pairs of old running shoes but now the running store where I work donate them so I finally have a good reason to get rid of them. They were really taking over our bedroom!ReplyDelete
I didn't really blog or shop this weekend either and I feel pretty good about it :)ReplyDelete
Your weekend sounds much like mine--no blogging or social media and time outdoors. It was nice! And I have that same shoe problem, but finally donated about 40 prs. to Goodwill!ReplyDelete
I hear you on being sick-- ugh! I've been donating a lot of my shoes to this bin at CrossFit for the same reason-- plenty of wear left so I can't justify chucking them, but I sure don't need them!ReplyDelete
Well, it wasn't crowded at the grocery store on Friday so that was nice! I use my old running shoes for non-running stuff, too. Thanks for the info on the earbuds/band at my blog!ReplyDelete
My big Black Friday purchases were also running shoes ($36 Pure Flow 2's??!) and some work clothes... Womp.
I'm glad you're feeling better and got that sunny birthday run. We're bracing for the arctic front here, too--might be time to concede defeat and move onto the treadmill for a few runs.ReplyDelete
My old running shoes become yard work shoes. But then again, how many pairs of yard work shoes do I need? :)ReplyDelete
Glad you were able to get out for that run! I did most of my shopping online as well since they seemed to offer lots of good deals that were actually better than the Black Friday deals.ReplyDelete
