Black Friday 2015 – Relaxing Running Deals
The chaos and crazy of Black Friday 2015 is nearly upon us! Standing in line for discounts on everything from electronics to evening wear has become a big part of many American families Thanksgiving tradition.
I have only participated in the nightmare that is Black Friday once, which was plenty. We woke up around 2 am to stand outside a Best Buy, only to realize the thing we had sacrificed a relaxing morning for was gone. Instead, we settled for something that was purchased purely out of principal.
My idea of a relaxing Thanksgiving weekend involves a nice Turkey Trot in the morning, followed by heaps and mounds of delicious Thanksgiving delicacies, a nap, a movie, an early bedtime, then leisurely strolling around my local running store on Black Friday in search of deals without a big crowd.
For the past two years, I’ve rounded up the deals and dealings going on at the local running stores around Minnesota this Black Friday 2015. There’s a little something for everyone. If you don’t see your local running store below, check this list of Minnesota running stores and contact them to see what they have going on.

Stop by for the weekly Flapjack Friday run, shower, then come back when the doors of Mill City Running open at 10 am. If you spend $100, receive a $20 gift certificate. If you spend $200, you’ll get a $50 gift certificate.Their loyalty program also applies ($25 store credit for every $200 spent on regular priced items), so that’s some serious savings!
