Thought I would share with you my exciting trip to the Expo for the Inaugural Portland Rock n' Roll Half Marathon that is this Sunday!
I live a little less than an hour south of Portland, so I am not staying in Portland for the race but will drive up with my mom in the morning on Sunday.
I like doing that a LOT better because I LOVE sleeping in my own bed!
The Expo was a lot of fun.
Being unemployed and on a limited budget I wasn't able to buy things that I wanted to get, like super awesome shirts, headbands, hats, etc.
However, there were tons of free samples and I still got my super awesome swag bag with my Brooks technical race t-shirt :)
So I can't complain!
Anyway, here are some pictures I took to share! :)
At the entrance to the Expo
Two time Olympian runner, Kara Goucher, was giving an interview while I was there! How exciting! She is definitely a running celebrity and a shining example for women runners and women athletes! If I could even have half of her talent I would be doing well!
The front of my race shirt. It is actually REALLY cute and I LOVE the color. Very exciting for a race shirt. Something I will actually want to wear!
My race bib. I'm in the 19th corral and there are 23 corrals. Yes, I am a slow runner.
And here is what I will be running for on Sunday... the BEAUTIFUL race bling! Can't wait to earn mine!!
