I think I am more exhausted after Christmas shopping than I was after my half marathon yesterday. Crowds of people, tons of walking, lifting bags and carrying them everywhere. I 100% believe christmas shopping is a workout. I am tired.
Conveniently when we were Christmas shopping I managed to scope out some road bikes at one of my favourite stores – Mountain Equipment Co-op. I am in serious need of a new bike and plan to do some road riding this summer so I am on the hunt for a new road bike that will make me ride super fast (obviously it’s the bike’s fault I cycle so slow).
Considering I was with my dad shopping, and we both have some serious hanger issues, we definitely packed fruit and veggies to snack on throughout the day. I also ate a FOOTLONG veggie sub in less than 3.54 minutes. I love Subway.
We stopped by Chapters to see Jay Onrait as I am a HUGE fan and he was doing a book signing there, but the line was infinitely long (only a slight exaggeration) so we decided to take some creeper pictures and continue on with our shopping. One day Onrait, I will meet you, one day.
I am either the worst Christmas shopper or the best… I somehow always manage to buy myself something. I tend to forget who I am shopping for. We stopped in at Running Room and I just had to check out their clearance runners. Whaddaya know… a pair of last season’s Brooks PureCadence shoes… in my size. HALF OFF. Fate.
I think I have a problem. It was less than a month ago that I bought my Brooks PureCadence2s. He he.
Even though we spent six hours accomplishing less than half of our shopping, it was a fun day and the Christmas music in all of the stores and the decorations in all of the malls were full of spirit! Oh and I got a bonus workout of walking, hauling, and lifting our shopping bags – excellent!
