Rock -n- Roll Expo!
My sister and I decided to hit up the expo on Friday rather than today to try and avoid a massive amount of runners. We were so glad that we did because it was crazy downtown. Trying to find parking was very frustrating, and there was traffic and people everywhere. I can't even imagine what the expo was like today! Probably total chaos!
Here is the swag that we got:
Knowing I may not have a race shirt, I decided to take matters into my own hands and buy another shirt. I never do this because they're usually pretty pricey, but the shirt was actually reasonably priced and just too cute to pass up! Oh, and I got a GoBelt too (a spin off of the Spibelt). I won't be using it at the marathon, but I think it will be perfect for some of my mid length training runs where I need my cell phone, keys, gels, or when I do another 1/2 marathon. It's pretty neat because it has loops for gels and clips to attach a race number to. Yay for expo shopping! :)
I'm also excited because look what arrived in the mail yesterday?
I've been having a hard time with my earphones lately. So, I took advantage of the deal Yurbuds was offering during Kona and ordered a pair. They are really neat and fit my ears perfectly. They feel really comfortable in my ears, so I'm looking forward to using them in my race.
Oh, and a couple of you asked what I would be wearing so you could look for me on the course....thanks! I need all the encouragement I can get! Unfortunately, my outfit is going to be pretty boring. I'm totally going for comfort and what I know will not chafe me for this race! I'll be wearing my black visor, black Sugoi shorts, CEP compression socks, a blue short sleeve shirt, and my long sleeve blue shirt for the first part. I'll also have my Nathan waistpack on!
Alright, it's 12 hours to go time! Yikes!
I want to wish all of you racing tomorrow the best of luck! I can't wait to hear how your races went! :)
