TGIF and a New Running Store!
There is a new running store opening in my area! It’s the Boulder Running Company and I couldn’t be more excited! This is a great store; I’ve popped into the Boulder location and was really impressed with it.
Now, I’m not a huge fan of shopping. I hate the mall; keep me far, far away from anywhere where there are just people casually strolling around with no where to be. When I go shopping, I have a purpose and that’s usually to get my shit and get the heck out of the store very quickly. I don’t mess around. I do however, enjoy going to running stores, maybe a little too much. My husband and I were reviewing our credit card statement recently and most of the charges were for either groceries or REI. He just looked at me incredulously, I’m sure thinking, how is it possible for one person to spend so much time and money at the REI? I pointed out all of the Home Depot charges and he seemed to understand. The sad thing is I can’t quite remember what I bought there. I know that I bought a new fuel belt for my 18 and 20 milers and a new Nike swimsuit, but I can’t remember the rest of the charges. (My birthday is on Monday and I’ve asked for a free for all at either the REI or the new Boulder Running Store.)
Does anyone else get all crazy at the local running stores? Or am I the only freak….ok, don’t answer that.
Anyway, I hope everyone has a great weekend. I’m planning on doing a run and maybe a bike ride this weekend. We are also going to go see the musical “Wicked”. I can’t wait!!
