You might have seen a lot of these pictures in previous posts but here is a lot. Just so you can feel like you were there…
The Expo on the first day… before the 50K runners and friends came to visit, so quier and nice…
Ryan Hall just happened to walk past me. What a coincidence!!!
I know you can’t tell but these stiff guys where running. CONSTANTLY.
PLEASE please please read the sign…
Pete Jacobs, as told by the sign and my delirious husband…
Ryan Hall going over the course…
All my pants are tear-away pants!!! Yours aren’t?
Pete Jacobs, Ironman Extraordinaire –and Juan, Husband/Ironman Extraordinaire
the line was INSANE
you HAVE to do these shots, or they don’t give you your bib… sure.
I shouldn’t have done that
With added security comes… crazy lines… but they went by fast I heard..?
You could end up putting on 10 pounds by the time you leave the expo if you’re not careful…
Or you could end up carrying 10 pounds in your bag from the free stuff (PLUS THE SHOPPING!!!)
free gloves (which I wore Sunday morning) plus my masterpiece.
Coolest pup ever loving the free greek yogurt. It was delish (the yogurt, I don’t eat dogs for now)
Matt Long signing his books!
Bart doing his thing 😉
Bart said “My girlfriend got married on me”. He was my boyfriend earlier this year. And I said he wasn’t fast enough… Apparently, he said that has always been his problem… YEAH RIGHT BART!
PS: I love you! Both!
Gene, from Charity Miles, with an osom poster everyone signed! If you haven’t checked Charity Miles, do it now! http://www.charitymiles.org/
So… that’s most of it… fun right? The expo is worth a trip for everyone! Did you like it? Was it too busy? Overwhelming? you walked in and out? Would love to get there someday?
I got to see SO many friends (thanks to all who came to say hello at our Autism Speaks booth!!!!) that I had a great time! Now… onto the race report…. 😉
—-Comment happily: you won’t be asked to create an account!
I love it!!!! I’d wait in line for Ryan Hall too!!!…. & to sit in those chairs with the boots/leg covers… Ahhhhh!!!!!
it’s like a 5 hour party, with food and non-alcoholic drinks!
The Recovery Pump thing I couldn’t stop laughing. It looked ridiculous. The throwaway pants?? I mean there’s nothing people won’t sell (and apparently suckers won’t buy) at expos! I don’t know who this Pete guy thinks he is but I know he can’t compete with Juan:) haha
I didn’t even see those things.. they’re funny looking, gotta look into it. Seriously some of the stuff they is a bit ridiculous. And how many headbands and compression gear booths do we need?? ah??? Yes, Pete is cute but no competition there….
Cheeky Runner!!!! Next time you see her, tell her to BLOG MORE! Does she have a different blog site than Runner’s World?
not another blog… she’s just too busy running a gazillion miles a week… 😉 Love her!
