Through the Thanksgiving season, I’ve created posts about tips for preparation and the most recent posted yesterday of how to avoid the excessive holiday weight gain. However, we have a ‘holiday,’ not particularly posted on your calendar. Black Friday.
Before you leave your homes in Encinitas to hunt for the best deals that stores have to offer for your holiday shopping, San Diego’s original Running + Walking Connection, Movin Shoes with the help of San Diego Running Meet up Group are hosting a group run.
To kick off the Black Friday and Small business Saturday events and to burn off some of those pounds you picked up the day before, the store with three San Diego-Based locations, is hosting an event called the Black Friday Trot off Your Turkey Run.
The Turkey Run, hosted by Movin Shoes Run and Event Manager Mick Gieskes, is being held from the three locations of the retail shoe shop: Encinitas, San Diego and La Mesa. Each location will host a five and a 10K following Thanksgiving that Friday, or what Movin Shoes likes to entitle the holiday ‘’National Eat to Failure Day.’
All of the locations will begin at their respective Movin Shoes locations at 9 am. The Encinitas run will begin at the Movin Shoes location at 897 S. Coast Highway 101.
Run variant one, which is the five K (or three miles), will depart from the store and run along the coast to the famous Cardiff Kook statue. Run Variant two (the 10K or 6.2 miles) will run past the Cardiff Kook statue to Solana Beach. At the sign for Solana Beach, participants will turn around and return to the store.
The deals for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday are not yet posted. However if you RSVP on the Movin Shoes Facebook page, you will know sooner than later of the upcoming deals. The deals are not quite finalized yet.
See you at the Kook!
