Let's talk about the Expo deals. First - I have to say this is one of my favorite race shirts ever. I put last year's on only to take it off and NEVER WEAR IT as it is extremely uncomfortable. It went right into a bag of unworn race shirts I am saving to give my class when I have enough for all of them. But this year's woman's shirt - great colors and great fit!
I got two more official shirts. One is a hoodie and the other is my new favorite color - orange - to go with my newest shoes! They were both youth sized and very good prices!
If you bought VCM merchandise you got sweaty bands free! They retail for about $15 so that was an excellent benefit! I got a button too which I get every year pretty much. I should organize these in one place.
Today I got a bib belt mostly for my triathlon but I may try it tomorrow. I got a couple gus too. Who knows why?
Okay I guess I should think about goals. Last year I was really disappointed with my time as it was a lot slower than the year before. This year I think I would be okay with that time! I am running later - lots of waiting around, some walking to get to the midway point, heat perhaps certainly somewhat more although it is not looking too bad. Last year my time was 2:09:10. My most recent half was more than 2 minutes slower than this. Last year my Maple Half and VCM had similar times. We'll see. I am guessing I will be 2:10 to 2:12. Of course I hope to have fun and look forward to running with my children. I hope to see people I know as I am running. One of my students is working in the food tent and I want to see her when I am done with a smile on my face!
I hope another year to see some of you here!
