#OptOutside with Black Girls RUN! on Black Friday

By: Toni Carey (@toni_carey/@blackgirlsrun)

If you haven't heard already, REI is shaking things up again with its #OptOutside campaign, and is closing all of its 149 stores and paying all 12,000+ employees to take the day off, because Thanksgiving is a time to reconnect with the people you love, in the places you love!

We could not be more on board with REI's decision. This Black Friday (November 25), our wallets are taking a rest day and we will be outside enjoying nature and enjoying life. 

We're encouraging you to shake things up a bit and pass on the Black Friday chaos and head outside with your friends and family, for a walk, run, or simply a breath of fresh air. 

Share how you will #OptOutside on Black Friday here. Find the coolest places to run in your area here! Don't forget to share your photos on Black Friday using hashtag #OptOutside #blackgirlsrun

This is awesome. I will #OptOutside with #blackgirlsrun. Thanksgiving is a time for family not to be shopping for family. Time is priceless! You can’t put a price tag on family time. Nowadays our world is so rushed. People do not take time for the simple things. Thanksgiving is time to simply be with family. I love that REI will not be open and I love that BGR is doing this campaign.
