Black Friday Run

Hugh came up with a funny idea and my wife and I made the route for it.  Wanna get some miles in before you battle the crowds?  How about a Black Friday run?

Unsupported and with my usual level of disorganization, I came up with the following:

Beat the crowds (most of them) and laugh/shake your head at the super consumers who are camped out or already in line by starting at 6am.

Where: Panera AT THE MALL

The route/scenario (per my wife):

Start on Black Friday early with a gift for your friend in mind and head to the mall to get it. 

Run through the mall (around the parking lot) but don’t find the gift. 

Go to the surrounding stores (through the parking lots of Dicks Sporting Goods, et al.) and, with no success there, head to WalMart (Ash>>Fairview).

Realize you will never be able to even get a parking spot at WalMart, give up and decide to go downtown (Fairview>>Chapel Hill>>Twin Lakes>>Trail>>Providence). 

Find what you are looking for downtown but refuse to pay downtown prices, give up again and go back to the mall (Stewart>>Westwood>>Broadway>>Clinkscales>>Ash>> parking lots>>Panera).

Buy the default Mizzou Sweatshirt you should have gotten them in the first place, and finally reward yourself with coffee and something decadent at Panera.

The route came out to be about 11 miles and I don’t plan on running it fast so if you are in town and want some miles, we’ll see you at 6am in front of Panera’s in the mall!

Happy Holidays!!
