First, I woke up this morning and pushed out a serious run...
See, what did I tell you? Smokin'... 2 whole miles in 25 minutes. I just need to run that 2 miles thirteen times on Sunday. And if I keep that pace, I won't beat the Subway guy's time... and that's just not acceptable. Yeah, see what you do on taper? Anyhow...
Nothin' to get your juices flowing like a big expo for your first marathon... well, until an 18-wheeler turns over on the only major highway between you and the site of the expo. All I have to say is thank God this happened today and not Sunday! It took more time, but we did get there... me, Robin, and Emily. First things first... no not our bibs... the bathroom, duh! OK, then off to get my bib...
Next stop was SportHooks! I couldn't wait to meet Marcey who sponsored a giveaway last month (you can read my full review HERE). Marcey was so sweet, and I loved being able to look and touch all the displays. Great quality. We, of course, had to document our meeting...
Crazy pretty and super nice... and want to hear the really crazy part? After standing on her feet for 2 days at the expo, she will run the actual marathon - her 64th! Wow!!!
And right as we needed to rush out the door to pick up kiddos from school, Jason from Life of an Aspiring Triathlete finally showed up, so I ran over to bib pick-up to meet him (very briefly... but we'll meet again at a bloggie dinner tomorrow). So here we are showing our pearly whites for the mandatory blogger self-photo:
