Cyber Monday – Running And Race deals?

I don’t know about you, but I am not a big fan of malls.  I prefer, and try to complete all of my shopping for the holidays and otherwise, online.  Cyber Monday is often a great day to find deals and sales for everything from TV’s to tablets, socks to shoes.


I’ve looked online this morning now for over an hour.  What have I found?  Nothing!  A few things I’ve spotted for my sons, are not available in their sizes.  I think part of this problem is that a lot of online stores have been having these “Cyber Monday” deals now for a week or more.  I myself bought a pair of running shorts from Dick’s about a week ago at a very good price.  I had never tried this particular style of short before, so I only bought one pair and wanted to test it out. It worked great on two runs since being delivered last week.  I want more!  I go online to buy more, and they are only available in XL.  WTF?

I’ve been on the lookout, too, for online deals for race registrations today.  What have I come up with?  A big fat zero.  This is where I need your help.  Have you seen any good deals on races being offered at a discount today?  Please share!!!  How about great deals on running shoes and apparel?  If you’ve seen any can’t miss offerings please share.

Run your heart out! Today is our day!


Happy Running Day to all of my readers!  Did you get out there and run?  Let’s face it, you don’t have to express your love for running just today.  I am taking the day off today so that I can run tomorrow.  Still recovering from my lackluster Half marathon on Sunday.  Still nursing the hamstrings.  I have back to back races in three days, so I am trying to do what my body needs to be able to perform at my best this weekend.

I really just wanted to wish you all happy running.  It doesn’t matter if you run today or not, or take advantage of race discounts today or not.  The true spirit of runners doesn’t just happen on one specific day of the year, it happens every day.  As long as you run happy, and run with your heart, our sport will be long lived.


If nothing else, enjoy your running and run to inspire.
