Black Friday: The Runners Edition
My husband has this app on his phone that counts down to Black Friday. He’s had it on his phone for years. I remember him saying “239 days until Black Friday…” when we were very first married, so Black Friday has always been kind of a thing for us.
I’m not even a good Black Friday shopper… just ask my BFF who has told me where/when I need to get my deals this year because I don’t pay enough attention to really take advantage of the savings.
With that said… I think it’s time for me to change that.
Side note – Black Friday isn’t even really Black FRIDAY anymore, is it?
I mean the deals are all up and ready to go, amiright?! Now, I know it is still a teeeeny bit early for the actual sales to be going on, so I just wanted to do a quick roundup of what I am going to be on the lookout for.
Black Friday: Runners Stuff
You can’t have enough stuff.
One deal that I wanted to tell you guys about was the [amazon_textlink asin=’B01KPUHBK6′ text=’Garmin Forerunner 35′ template=’ProductLink’ store=’mynoguli-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’52f0a34f-ecc3-11e8-a370-0f718decc6a2′] on Amazon. It’s already on sale (here!) and it’s a great deal.
While I don’t wear this watch anymore I loved it when I did.
If you’ve been wanting to dive into the world of Garmin without spending a ton of money this is the watch to do that with!!
I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for shoe deals. I have got to diversify my running shoe portfolio, and a good deal on Black Friday will help me fill up the closet!
Black Friday: Actual Races
You read that right… I’m thinking about actual races! I know a few different race series had Black Friday sales last year, and I’ll be keeping my eye out for the same to happen this year. It’s the perfect time to fill up next year’s race schedule.
Could runDisney have a Black Friday deal? They did a few times before (I think Tinker Bell got a special Black Friday bib sale). So we’ll be on the lookout for that too!
Black Friday: Nothing to do with Running
So, let’s get real for just a minute. Technically I should be using Black Friday to start (or finish?) purchasing gifts for the OTHER people in my life. Christmas is, like, practically tomorrow.
I decided to round up a few of the best Black Friday deals I could find that have nothing to do with running – because if you’re anything like me – most of the people I am buying gifts for are holding up the signs and red vines while I run.
For my Kids: [amazon_textlink asin=’B01J90MSDS’ text=’Amazon Kindle’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’mynoguli-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’bead81e0-ecc3-11e8-9ceb-d5e2e32f9908′] (kid edition). We have two pink ones.
I’ll admit – the Kindle technology drives me crazy and when those things get glitchy I have no idea how to fix them. However, the fact that my kids have the ability to play any game or watch any show they want to watch without paying extra… pure gold!
For my Husband: SANDALS.
I can’t guarantee that they’ll offer something, but they have in the past. I’m keeping my eye out on Sandals to grab a deal so my husband and I can take a much-needed vacation next year. No links to share because I have no idea what the sale will be… but I’m holding my breath for a good one!
For my Family: [amazon_textlink asin=’B0792KTHKJ’ text=’Echo Dot’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’mynoguli-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’cfaf73cb-ecc3-11e8-82af-f34b62bbe406′] – we probably won’t be buying more of these because we have one in pretty much every room. So much so, that our daughters go “Alexa…” when they don’t have an answer to a problem. Also, whenever they want to listen to Taylor Swift singing Shake it Off… at least twenty seven times a day.
So, to sum it up… Black Friday is awesome and I’m sure they’ll have some great deals for runners.
But, runners, don’t forget about those poster-holders, too.
