A few weeks ago I got an email from Road Runner Sports inviting me to a VIP event in the store. I thought it was a trick or something, so I ‘nored it.
Then, Skinny Runner formally asked me to be her date and NO ONE turns down a pretty blonde girl (even I know that) so I said yes. And today after work we headed to our local running shoe store for a rager.
SR brought a cake flavored jello shot for us to pre-game. <- The only part of this post that is not a joke. Apparently she heard I like to hit the bottle. Wonder what gave that away?
The line was out the door and the store was packed. New Balance, Adidas, Brooks, Reebok reps were there among other local vendors.
They had food and champagne – I am NOT fancy, but I LaLaLOVE champagne.
But, I didn’t care about the shoes or the booze (for once!).
I was so distracted by the #1 thing on my Christmas list…
I can explain…
Then, I felt the champagne going to my head (shoulda ate dinner before), and thought I saw a familiar face…
YES! Monica our team Captain / Bananica who drove our van for Reach The Beach in May was at the party. I <3 her.
Remember how I totally freaked out on my night leg and she saved my life?! God Bless her.
Question: Do you have a local running store?
What is your favorite shoe brand?
