The Philly HM was only part of my fun weekend. On Friday night, I hit up the expo in order to avoid the mad rush on Saturday. I also met Matt for happy hour and restrained myself by only having 2 1/2 beers. I made up for that yesterday.
Amanda and I happened to be at the expo at the same time, so we chatted for a bit. Amanda kicked ass yesterday in the half!
I know I complain a lot about shirt sizing but this is ridiculous. Normally, the Philly Marathon has great long-sleeve tech shirts. Witty sayings and the fit is perfect. I always look forward to adding another Philly Marathon shirt to my rotation. Not this year. The grey shirt is last year’s shirt (size small, Endurafit) and the black is this year’s shirt (also size small, also Endurafit). Not cool Philly, not cool.
On Saturday, I headed back to the expo for a blogger meet-up. It’s so great to finally meet some of these ladies in-person! From left to right: me, Abby, Amanda, Gina, Kari, Katie, Megan, and Gene.
As I was leaving I spotted Bart Yasso at the Runner’s World table and no one was talking to him so I ran over for a quick picture. I love Bart! And I was bummed that I didn’t have my copy of My Life on the Run for him to sign 🙁
That’s it folks! Race recap will be up tomorrow.
I need to give a huge shout out to Alyssa and Kara for running 50 miles on Saturday (or, in Alyssa’s case, 50+ miles). You ladies are so inspiring and I hope to follow in your footsteps soon!
