My two favorite things–Running and Bargain Shopping
Although I wasn’t sure that my legs were recovered from my half marathon on Thursday, I decided to meet my FB friend Judy for a run.
We have been meeting in the Crossings, the same place and at the same time. This was to be the last time for a while since I will be going back to work. Each time the weather has been colder.
But nevertheless, it is always enjoyable to run with someone else. We chat abut running and racing and have basically the same philosophy on both.
The only problem with this run was that neither of us had a working watch or phone app. So I am guessing that it was more or less 4 1/2 miles since it seemed longer than our previous runs…but who knows?
After the run, I stopped at Starbucks to refuel. I got some Blueberry oatmeal which gave me 4 bonus stars.(I now have enough to free lunch item this week 🙂 )
Then I stopped at FleetFeet. I love my Mizuno Wave Rider 18s so I had ordered them in a different color.
Guess what? I had a $25 off coupon? So I bought some of my favorite GU flavors (which were buy 10, get 2 free.)
Next, I headed to Joann Fabrics where I had 40% off coupon on one item and then 15% off the whole order. I bought a shelf that I plan to make into a medal hanger and some other stuff.
I resisted going to Target that was in the same plaza since I can’t get out of the store for less than $200. Instead I went to Marshalls.
The best deal of the day was on socks. I get blisters and I was tempted to buy Feetures socks at FleetFeet but didn’t want to spend $15 on a pair of socks (when I don’t really need any socks.)
When I left, it was snowing.That was perfect. I left without being tempted to do more shopping.
I was so happy that I got my run in. Tomorrow it is supposed to rain and colder temps are forecasted for the week.
Happy Running! Do you shop for bargains?
