Friday afternoon when I got off work I hopped on the metro and headed over to the race expo. I picked up my chip and bib and walked around to check out the different vendors.
I was happy to see the people from Elite Racing were there and offering a free registration into any of the Rock N’ Roll events. I entered the contest, although I’m sure I won’t win. But I did pick up the Virginia Beach race flyer to bring home to show the BF. I’ve been telling him how much fun that race is and I’m thisclose to having him convinced to do it! (Score one for me hah!)
I also stopped by the Active Release Therapy booth and let them work out a few last minute kinks in my legs. While I was waiting in line I was talking to this guy’s wife and found out he’s planning to do the IronMan in Kentucky. Craziness!
Saw Bart Yasso signing books, bought a Bondi Band because I’ve heard good things about them, bought the BF some running socks and then was just about to leave when I realized I’d forgotten to walk down one row. I figured I’d swing through right quick and see if there was anything interesting.
Boy am I glad I did because I got to meet Gracie from gracie’s gear!!! I was thoroughly kicking myself for forgetting my camera at this point. Check out FoodsThatFit, she was smart enough to remember her camera and snapped a cute picture of the two of them! Gracie and I got to chatting about bloggers and her gear and Gracie was awesome enough to give me one of her bras to test out and review! I am so excited and I can’t wait until my legs are ready to go so I can get out there and try it! Keep an eye out for that post coming in the next week or so.
When I got home BF and I headed to Italian Market for some carb-loading. I got penne in a light marinara with a side salad. It was delicious and carb-eriffic. We hit up Rita’s Italian Ice for dessert because it was Free Rita’s Day! I ate about three bites of my mango ice before I dropped it on the front steps and it spilled everywhere.
We had to make a pit stop at CVS to pick up some safety pins because my race packet didn’t have any in it. Glad I didn’t discover that on race morning.
When we got home, we went through race morning logistics one more time to ease my paranoia and nerves, I laid out my race outfit and then hit the hay.
Check back tomorrow for a race day recap!
