LV Half Marathon Expo

by - Saturday, April 26, 2008

Well folks tomorrow's race day, which of course means today was expo day.

My mom and I got to the expo fairly early. Picked up my bib and chip. I'm number 3132. Sounds lucky to me.

We picked up lots of free schwag. I love race stuff. Instead of getting shirts, the race directs were giving out sweet windbreak zip ups. They's nice.

I also got asjusted by a chiropracter, which was an interesting experience. I got my feet analyzed to look at where I balance and hold my weight. Learned some interesting stuff there.

And then we went to the Stick table where the guy rolled out my muscles and it was super cool. My mom snapped a not so great pic, but I don't have my camera cord here so all pics will have to wait until I return home on Wed. so I can upload them.

Anyway, speaking of the Stick. I bought one. A lot of you all seem to love them and so I convinced my mom to get one for me. Hehe I love my mom a lot!

In other pre-race news, my family and I are going to one of my favorite Italian places tonight so I can do some carb-loading.

This is a race you can run with your iPod which I'm pretty stoked about because a lot of other races don't let you.

The course is pretty flat for the first half and then there are about four or five hills in the second half. I'm feeling fairly confident in my abilities, but I'm a lot nervous about the injuries mentioned in the last post causing problems.

I hate the day before a race. I twitz out with nervousness.

Well that's all I've got for now. I won't have a post-race update probably until about Tuesday because I am going straight from the race in Allentown to a work conference in Baltimore that doesn't end until Tuesday, and sadly I don't think I'll have a computer/chance to get online until late Tuesday when I get back.

So wish me lots of luck. And of course good luck to anyone else who is racing this weekend!
