Marathon Expo - Packet Pickup


This evening my entire family went to Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex to pick up our race packets for Sunday's Marathon. Maddy and I were going to try to hook up, but we were in and out before she was able to get over there. I had some Genetics and other 7th grade science concepts to study with my older daughter for her big test tomorrow.

We were thinking Thursday would be the least crowded night (since folks from out of town were probably arriving on Friday). Still it was quite crowded as you can see from the picture!


We got right down to picking up our stuff, I bought a new fuel belt, the new Helium.

I also picked up a couple of shirts. I am especially a fan of the Life is Good brand.



I am starting to get excited. I am making my list and checking it twice!!

Oh - had a really relaxed 3 mile run today...3.05 miles in 32:26. I am so ready!

Good luck!

Crowded it was last night! Elbow to elbow.

I love my Helium Fuel Belt. I am going to leave it at home for the race. With 9 water stops for the half, it's doubtful I'll need it. I think you will really like it!

I ended up with 2 sticks of Body Glide and the cute Disney Branded Girly Shirt.

Hey, that marathon shirt design is nice! And I like Life is Good shirts too. No matter the weather on race day, relish the fact that you're in great shape and will be spending a wonderful day with your husband doing something very memorable.

I can feel the excitement! I'll be tracking you -- FYI!
