Cyber Monday is the best idea the internet has ever had. I would love to high five the genius who was like, "I think it would be a great idea to put the entire internet on sale." Right? 20 points to that person! I love Cyber Monday because running is a deceptively expensive sport. It's main draw for me was the fact that I didn't have to buy anything like a gym membership when I first started. I was a poor college grad who had nothing but 40 grand of debt. So a way to stay active for free sounded real nice. I had shoes and clothing, all I had to do was put one foot in front of the other. Then as I got into it I learned running in cotton leggings and shirts led to chafing and my junky shoes were a size and a half to small. So I started buying dry wicking running gear, sugary energy gels, and paying race entry fees and before I knew it I spent a trillion dollars on running. Two of my favorite words, behind cupcake and jokes, are coupon and sale. Cyber Monday is a runner's best friend.
