Are you running one? This year, I'm not. I'm traveling to Florida next week for the Panama City Beach Half Marathon, and I don't want to risk aggravating my PF or that Baker's cyst or who knows what else! I will run Thanksgiving morning, though. I normally run on Thursdays, plus I want to fire up the old calorie burner so I can eat all the food!
Thanksgiving also marks the start of the holiday shopping season. I've already seen Christmas decorations up around the 'hood and stores have had their holiday displays up since Halloween. But I just can't get excited about holiday shopping until the day after Thanksgiving!
In the spirit of the holiday season, and with Black Friday looming large, I wanted to share a few deals with you for the runner in your life! I've got a couple of discount codes and bargains. Enjoy!
Janji, a performance running apparel company, was founded to help bring clean water to impoverished countries. Purchase this Nyali tank and give one year of clean water to an individual in Kenya. Use the code Janji5off to save $5 on any purchase.
Runners love their fuel, and I've made no secret of my love for Tailwind Nutrition! This ultramarathoning fuel gives me wings to push through my long runs, my half marathons, and my full marathons. In the past, I could never stomach gels and I have wall-o-phobia, so when I found Tailwind I never looked back! Full disclosure: I am a Tailwind Trailblazer (kind of like an ambassador), but I would promote Tailwind even if I wasn't. My rugby playing son loves it too! While Tailwind doesn't offer discount codes, they are having a 20% off special Black Friday through Cyber Monday on the website and at certain retail outlets! Now's your chance to try it! And those stick packs make great stocking stuffers. Let me know if you have any questions...maybe I'll send you a sample or 2....
I've shared a few products from SLS3 here on the blog. I've trialed their compression socks (love them), the HiPZipp (got me through 2 marathons), the cutest ever bike shorts (pink flowers!), and my new love, their low compression socks. I'm excited to share a 50% off discount code on the entire website! Don't wait tho, the code CYBER50 is good only 11/24 through 11/28.
As I always say, it's never too late to jump into the Book Club! I would be remiss if I didn't mention some excellent book deals, perfect for the runner in your life (you!) Some of the books we've read for the Book Club are available for a bargain on Amazon.com. Do you have a Kindle reader? That's the way to go. You know the app is free, right?
Here's what I found:
Fast Girl by Suzy Favor Hamilton available for $1.99.
Boston Bound by Elisabeth Clor for $4.99.
Confessions of An Unlikely Runner by Dana Ayers for $2.99.
The Long Run by Mishka Shubaly for $1.99.
Tales From Another Mother Runner by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea for $6.49.
Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for all the runners who read my blog! Are you running a Turkey Trot this year? Any fun running bargains you want to share? Do you shop for your family this time of year? Or do you scoop up bargains for yourself?
I'm linking up a day late and a dollar short with Tuesdays on the Run: Marcia, Erica, and Patti! Also with DebRuns for Wednesday Word, which is grateful. And with Debbie, Lora, Rachel, and Susie for Coaches Corner!
