Friday after work I went to the Chicago Marathon expo.  I am no longer running the marathon so why did I go?  Just to check it out.


Interesting race Maraton Ciudad de Mexico.


This made me smile.  Such a huge bra.


Look at those tiny feet!


I want to be Mebnificent.  I tweeted this photo to Meb and he favorited it.

Of course I had a few beer samples and purchased a bottle opener.

Cool medal for The Gasparilla Distance Classic in February.  It is on my to do list.


I met Scott Jurek and he signed my bib.  I said so many nice things to him and he just smiled.  Such a humble guy.

And seriously the ugliest shirt ever!  I know I never keep any of my race shirts but don’t think I would have even thought of keeping it.


At the end of the expo I walked out with a pair of Superfeet insoles and two Sparkly Soul headbands. So proud of myself for not spending more money.  I thought it was a good expo but feel like compared to previous years it was much smaller.  Or maybe in previous years I’ve purchased more stuff and felt like there were so many vendors.  This time I quickly checked them out because there wasn’t anything that I needed.
