Ways to Save on Time and Healthcare Costs for Running at Walgreens Healthcare Clinic

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser. 
I am not someone who frequents the Doctor. In fact, 2 years ago, I switched from a PPO healthcare account to a high deductible HSA account due to my infrequent doctor visits. Over the past few months, I have found myself spending more time on my health due to the amount of running I've done. 2 full marathons, 3 half marathons, a 10K and 5K within a short month and a half window is a lot on your body. Thankfully for me, I live in an area where Walgreens Healthcare Clinics are available.
post Dopey Challenge, I ran 48.6 miles over 4 days and have had multiple health issues since
The Walgreens Healthcare Clinic Tampa is located very conveniently to my house. Convenience is the key word here and much needed in a bind. Walk-Ins are welcome & appointments are available Open 7 Days & Weeknights. They accept most insurance and have a board-certified family nurse practitioner on site. My favorite convenience is that it's Walgreens so you have an on-site pharmacy. The #HealthcareClinic is a one stop shop which is very important to me.

Walgreens is also an awesome place to stock up on many pre-race and post race needs. A few staples which I make sure are on hand for a race are:

Walgreens Healthcare Clinic is a time and money saver for anyone seeking healthcare. I can personally attest that they saved me greatly after my NYC injury.

I was compensated for this post through my partnership with #CollectiveBias but as always, all opinions are my own.


  1. I love KT tape and biofreeze. Two of my staples!

  2. These races all sound like so much fun! So nice that you can pop into a Walgreens quickly if an injury occurs on the weekend! #client
