Seriously, why does Running Warehouse have to do a 12 Days of Christmas?? Some of the deals have been too good to pass up, and I LOVE Running Warehouse. Who doesn’t love FREE two-day shipping? My hubs actually let me order a Brooks Running backpack the other day for an early Christmas gift (thanks honey!). He got it for $21.77 instead of $40!
I know that running is supposed to be a lower cost activity compared to some sports, but some times it doesn’t seem that way! Between new shoes every 350-500 miles, appropriate running gear for the season, GU, etc.; it seems to add up quickly!
But, you know what? I love running retail therapy! When my new shoes arrived last week—I was so excited and couldn’t wait to wear them running. It’s pretty much like that with every piece of running gear I get!
I guess it could be worse. I could have an unhealthy addiction or an insatiable need to purchase $500 pairs of shoes or handbags. I will probably buy myself a few more running Christmas gifts this year.
On a running related note, I am back at it after the back spasms of the weekend! I went to the chiropractor on Tuesday, and he said it was fine to run. He gave me some good stretching and strengthening exercises to do. It was so great to sweat again after an unexpected four days off!
Have you bought yourself any running-related Christmas gifts? If so, what did you buy?
