i’m so excited. and i just can’t hide it!

my marathon bib!

the M34 and M42 buses packed with people carrying clear UPS bags filled with goodies…yep, can only mean one thing, expo time is here!! I wanted to get it out of the way early, so I met up with my teammate TB earlier this afternoon and we hit the expo!

And guess who checked my registration card? Fellow blogger Brooklyn.

So, we got our bibs, goody bags-and our long-sleeve NYCM tech shirts!!! Yep, they’re going high class this year for the race souvenir. Really nice shirts too…

We then split up for a little bit do do some browsing/shopping and then met back up after a half hour. For me, this was the damage:
  • new pair of Mizuno Breath Thermo gloves to replace the ones I lost near the end of the winter. (And the guy at the Mizuno booth who rung me up said “Go Flyers!” to me though I didn’t even recognize him…he said that he’s seen me at races wearing my Flyer singlet and that “yeah, you’re well known.” I bet he’s a blog reader. teehee.)
  • a pair of $2 throwaway gloves for the startrunning diva shirt...not the one i got though
  • a pair of black Nike Tempo Track shorts that said “Run NYC” on them
  • a long-sleeve shirt that says “running diva” on it. (and TB got the same one and we’re planning on that being our post-marathon party attire!) c’mon, that’s soooo me…
  • a free LiveStrong bracelet “if I promise to wear it on Sunday.” I said I’d wear it while I’m passing Lance (is anyone else hoping he bonks? that’s the consensus I’m getting.)

a couple more amusing pieces of attire I spotted at the expo…

asics has a sense of humor...who knew

I think Asics had the right idea with this one…

marathongs!And from the same people who made the running diva shirt…I’d never wear this but it was just too funny to not get a picture of. Especially since I know this is a very common slip of the tongue πŸ™‚

So exciting to get all this stuff (the bib, chip, etc…) and actually be able to use it this year!!

Tonite is the Flyers pasta party…yay!!

And how great does Sunday’s weather forecast still look?? High of 52, sunny, low wind!! Looks like singlet weather to me, considering I felt warm in long sleeves during my 4 miles this morning and it was in the 40s!! (I will have makeshift arm warmers for the start though…)
