Why I #OptOutside

In my opinion nothing beats being outside in the fall.  Each year the earth puts on a magnificent display of color, thrusting crimsons, bronzes, ambers, and butterscotch palettes into our views.  The air is fresh and crisp and sunny days are welcomed with sunlit kisses to warm your face.  Fall is a time for hats and mittens and comfy breathable clothing.  I enjoy Thanksgiving in typical American fashion, by stuffing myself with all the delectable delights that my family prepares.  I relish in it. 

In fact, I even have turkey sweat pants for those moments of indulgence, but Black Friday is my day to return to my normal self.  Black Friday’s run is the day to ponder the day before and be grateful for the ability to even run.  Black Friday is not meant for being stuffed into stores on my day off.  I use the day to reenergize myself by OPT-ing OUT of the craziness of the crowded shopping centers.  I run off a few more calories, if for nothing else than to make some more room for one more slice of sweet potato pie.  My name is Lalicia Roman and I am a member of Black Girls Run! #OptOutside #sponsored
