Black Friday Race Recap (?)

I set a new shopping PR at yesterday's Back Friday "Marathon".

Time: 8 hours  Stores Visited: 3

Got a lot of good deals! Got a Dirt Devil Vacuum for just $28.  There was actually a smaller one for $9!  Also got a lot of winter clothes since I don't own much being that I just moved here from a tropical country.  Hooray for $8-$10 winter tops! 

Black Friday WAS NOT bad at all.  I thought I'd get pushed or crushed in the crowd...but there was NO CROWD at all at Target, Best Buy and Pier 1.  Maybe it's because of our location. *shrugs*  I guess that's a good thing. =)

Anyway, back to REAL running (and not running around stores)...  I wasn't able to do my tempo run yesterday because I was too tired from Black Friday. Boo!  Bad runner!  I'll just do it today.  It's just 5K anyway.'s 7 days until marathon day.  EEeeeeek!  Excitiiiiiing!

I had a lovely thanksgiving with my dad, step-mom, siblings and fur babies.  My dad did all the cooking (thank God!).  2 days after, I still feel like a stuffed turkey!

How was your thanksgiving?


30 days of Thanks (Day 27)

I am thankful for good customer service.  It is vital in every business.   I've had my fare share of bad ones!  Though I recall times that I received customer service that was extraordinary.   And it was greatly appreciated!



  1. So glad that you had a good Black Friday experience. I've never shopped on Black Friday but my sister does so she gets things for us and we just pay a personal shopper. Love it! :)

  2. JULIE --- LOVE the photo.

    8 hours = 3 stores, wowza!!

    I went to 6 in 5 hours. My best score . . . $420 heels for $38 [yay, yay, YAY!!] woops was I to be buying for others?! ;) ehhh, one sweet give for myself, is ok, right?!

  3. we are so close to race day! eeeeek :) but in a good way eeeeek hahah
