I picked up my race packet yesterday, no big surprise that there wasn't a big expo or much swag, but I did get to meet Jeff Galloway! But the bad bad blogger girl that I am I did not get a picture of me with him. Someday I will learn to be a better blogger! I thought about going back later when I realized what I had done, but I had things I had to get done. No shirts at packet pickup instead you get it when you cross the finish line. Little mixed on that but it is what it is. I intend to finish and get the shirt!
We got a mp of the course, some Hammer Gel in Huckleberry flavor, some gloves, a bag with reflective stripes and our race number. But we did also get 20% off clothing purchases at the local running store. I may have invested in some cold weather running tights. It is too warm to wear them now but winter is coming!
They have record numbers at in the race this year. There are over 450 in the half marathon, last year there was 412ish. So that is awesome all the more people to aspire to pass, hopefully not be passed by :) I know 450 doesn't seem like a lot to some of you, but for races around here that is HUGE!

How do you feel about not getting your shirt until you get across the finish line?
