In April, Becky and I attended Girls' Night Out at our local Road Runner Sports (Alpharetta, GA). We had a great time hanging out with the Road Runner Sports team, meeting other local runners, and of course checking out the latest running gear. OH! The best part is that these events are FREE! Of course when we found out that another Girls' Night Out event was happening in July, we knew we had to go!
Girls' Night Out started at 6:00 so I hit the trail by my office to log a few miles before meeting Becky at Avalon. We got there a little early so we grabbed a quick snack and headed over to Road Runner Sports.
We were greeted by Sarah and welcomed with some light snacks and beverages. We each received a raffle ticket coming and a bonus ticket for preregistering for the event online. You also received bonus tickets for doing different things in the store such as getting stretched, trying on Moving Comfort bras, or trying on Brooks running shoes. There were also extra discounts on purchases for Road Runner Sports VIP members.
There were several "smaller" raffle drawings throughout the evening including a foam roller, CEP compression sleeves, and Balega socks. Becky scored some compression sleeves, Jen won a session with Active Stretch, and I won the grand prize of the evening of a Moving Comfort Bra and pair of Brooks running shoes.
There was a little lighter crowd this time at Girls' Night Out than there was in April. The weather forecast was very sketchy for the evening including some potentially severe weather coming through and a lot of people are taking end of summer vacations right now which probably contributed to the crowd this evening. Regardless, Road Runner Sports Alpharetta made sure that everyone had a great time. Our host, Sarah, was fabulous and made sure we were all staying active and had us doing squats and other exercises while she drew raffle winners - of course Becky and I had to plank.
