Last week on Friday I went to the expo to pick up my bib for the Chicago Marathon. I bought more stuff than I should have. But it is OK because most of the stuff I needed anyway. 🙂
I love the stairs right before going into the expo.
Come on in! I do not know who the people are in the right photo. I just wanted to take it because it shows the World Marathon Majors: Chicago, Boston, Tokyo, Berlin, New York City, and London.
I’ve run the Little Rock Half Marathon and would love to run the marathon just for the medal. Look at the size of it!!
I saw Joan Benoit Samuelson.
I’ve heard great things about Gasparilla which has races of various race distances–13.1, 15k, 8k, and 5k. For those that like a challenge, there are 3 that include running the 15k on Saturday and 8k on Sunday (Michelob Ultra Lime Cactus Challenge); running the 15k & 5k on Saturday and the half marathon on Sunday (Michelob Ultra Amber Challenge); or running the 15k & 5k on Saturday and the half marathon and 5k on Sunday (Michelob Ultra Challenge).
I love the color of the Newton Kismet. I also tried on the Fate (not pictured) and I think those are the ones I will get to train for my half marathon in February.
Just felt like taking pictures of these because I really like them and got me pumped up for the race on Sunday.
I thought this was cute too.
None other than Hal Higdon and Bart Yasso.
Everything that I bought.
Love the shirt color. For sure I will be keeping this one.
What is the most you’ve spent at a race expo? Are you currently training for a race?
I bought a couple shirts at the expo! Hal wasn’t there when I was, otherwise I would have stopped to say hey!
I bought 4. I think it is time for me to throw away my stinky ones and donate the ones I don’t like/wear anymore. So now that marathon training is over, let’s plan to meet for dinner/drinks.
It was an awesome expo…I picked up a race visor, hat, and another long sleeve shirt – we had fun checking out the various race booths as well…that Little Rock bling was insane!!
Glad you liked it too. I usually do not buy too much stuff it this time could not help myself. 😀
I usually try to run through the expo, since I pay for 3/4 hour of street parking and don’t have much extra time. But this year I did end up buying a Nike Chicago Marathon running cap and still made it back to the car with 5 minutes to spare!
Nice! I love how you can validate your parking pass to only pay $10.
