Sunday we went back soon after the 5K finished. First we ate, then we shopped. It was much better as far as the crowd but I still wasn't feeling it for the shopping. Maybe this was when I bought the sunscreen, not sure. Emily and The Rocketship headed back to the hotel so Emily wouldn't be on her feet too long. But Jameson and I did a bit more "looking" around. We hit up City Sports again. J had actually gotten running shoes there Saturday night. I went back to look at a running jacket I had seen on Saturday. They were handing out coupons at the Expo so I was all set with a discount. I had first seen this jacket in DC but talked myself out of it. It was the first thing I spied in the store on Sat. night when J got the shoes and Em picked up a Boston shirt. Still nothing for me. But on Sunday I was ready and thought it was time to get the jacket.
I made sure I got the hood in the picture
as my son thought the hood rocked. I love
the whole jacket.
Then we headed to Nike Town where J wanted to get some shoes. I had spotted some the night before but again talked myself out of them. Well, on Sunday the "Go ahead and get it Gods" were whispering in my ear. I had that post race adrenaline high plus the I'm on vacation mode of thinking and got not one but two pairs. I got the pair I had spied on Sat. night but then J showed me some he thought I would like. He was right! I love them! Maybe he can quit his day job and become my personal shopper. I seem to be going a little nuts buying sneakers these days. If I have to wear orthotics I am going to wear some fun shoes. That is how I look at it.
Perched on the dashboard on the way home. Love them!
Couldn't resist these either.
Before we headed out to eat Sunday night we hit the Expo up one more time. We remembered that last year there were good discounts on much of the Boston 2011 gear. We all scored. Here is the shirt I got.
One Busy May
I also need to edit my sidebar because I am now officially registered for the 2 person relay in the Vermont City Marathon. I didn't get picked in the lottery but I have scored a bit off the transfer board. I love love love this race and the thought of not being a part of it was making me very sad! I do NOT like to spectate this race anymore as I am eaten up with envy of all the runners.
May is going to be one busy month. I am already signed up for 4 races (two halves) and will probably do one more as it is in my town and that never happens. Then the one weekend I am not racing there is the Girls on the Run race which I want to help at or at least go see my girls and the other day that weekend is a walk for Juvenile Diabetes and one of my other students has asked me to be on his team. Holy Batman it is going to be a busy month!
