Today was the Chicago Marathon Expo. We had an easy time getting our packets and bags.
We found out that a “Spirit of the Marathon II” movie will be coming out in March 2013! We also went by the Disney Marathon Series Booth and got to see the 20th Anniversary Disney Marathon Medal that we will be getting in 2013! It is so heavy and beautiful! I has two spinners in it!
Plus we got to chat with the race director about the event and share our excitement to do the Goofy Challenge. Oh and I scored a princess crown they were giving out for registering.
But I have to say Drew did look prettier than me in the tiara.
And we got to see Deena Kastor! Deena was so kind and spent time talking to us. She even wrote Rob some words of encouragement to take our household record time in the marathon. Rob has yet to take it from me, but he will be able to easily.
I didn’t love the Nike gear this year so I didn’t buy anything. The colors and choices (no track jacket and the women’s running jacket doesn’t have the side pockets for gels like the men’s) just didn’t stand out to me. I did get a couple more sweatybands and I may be on their facebook page soon sporting a couple bands.
And we found our names on the wall.
It was a successful expo! The temps look mild for Sunday. Hopefully we have a great race day!
