I swear if anyone else talked about shopping today my credit card was going to burst into flames.
In my wallet. Locked in my desk drawer. Key thrown out the window.
I’m the queen of oggling pretty things online until WOOPS trigger happy how’d that end up in my shopping cart?? And well I wouldn’t want to waste all that time I spent looking around, might as well just type in these few numbers – since I’ve got them memorized and all – and…
Welp, guess I’ll have to try and explain that charge to Brian in a few days.
But then a few days pass, maybe you forget all about it, and WHOOO HI UPS MAN! Presents at work!
(because obvs you have them delivered to work instead of home, just in case you need a sneak-in-the-back-door-when-husbands-in-the-shower-until-a-convenient-time-to-break-the-news closet delivery plan)
Don’t lie to me. YOU DO IT TOO!
But sometimes it’s nice to go into an actual store and touch stuff before you buy it. Try it on. Give a little shimmy in the 3-way dressing room mirror to see what your ass looks like in it.
(again, don’t lie!)
- side note – OC Retailers, why no Oiselle or Picky Bars? ANYWHERE! Can I have a talk with your buyers, please?? I’m gonna set up an expo booth on my porch and start dealing if y’all won’t…
Anyway, RoadRunner Sports is my go-to store around here. They keep a solid shoe inventory (including my beloved Brooks Launch), have all the fuel options I need (ahem, except picky), and their VIP program puts their prices below everyone else in town.
So when I’m looking to test run a new shoe, pick up a sports bra when I realize I haven’t done laundry in three weeks, or grab an emergency tube of lemon lime nuun for the weekend’s long run, RRS is it.
Those are empty. Nuun graveyard is out of control. Must restock.
Luckily next week I’ve got a pretty damn good reason to get into RoadRunner…
Umm yeah, I’ll see you, your cocktails, and your prizes in your little runner heaven store next Tuesday.
RRS puts on a good party – the Adventure Run with Sheila was a blast – and actually Margot, Rebecca and I went to this Girls’ Night Out event a few months ago. There was champagne, chocolate strawberries, and I won a $60 sports bra.
Yup. My kinda party.
And fly me out to come with you.
