The hallway leading to the entrance was filled with inspirational quotes:
The signage directed us to look up our bib numbers and then head inside to pick up our bib and packet.
Not before posing for a quick photo with Jeanette though!
After we picked up all of the things we needed, we worked the room to decide on the things we wanted. As usual, a familiar gravitational force pulled Carly and I to one particular section of the room
Yep. Once again we were able to sniff out the wine at a race expo.
Carly filled out cards for a giveaway for us. One of the questions was “How often do you consume wine?”
Do we recommend wine? Why yes, yes we do.
We then tore into our race bags and launched into photo-shoot mode:
We were on our way out when a familiar face flagged us down – Tricia!
We were on a mission post-expo to find Carly a new pair of shoes, as one of hers decided to kick the bucket today:
RIP left flip-flop, Carly will miss you. We made a quick stop at the Round Rock Outlets, Target, and then headed home. It was time to see what was in our swag bags!
Not bad See Jane Run, not bad at all! Love the race shirt – I don’t think I’ve ever seen a purple one before.
The course, however, is less than desirable. It’s not in one of the nicest areas of Austin, and according to Tricia, it’s a pretty hilly course with plenty of speed bumps. Yes, speed bumps.
Oh, and the weather. Let’s talk about the freakin’ weather. Don’t get me wrong, Austin NEEDS the rain in the worst possible way. We haven’t had a good rain storm since back in May. But … it would be nice if it could hold off until at least noon. Or if the rain won’t go away, can we at least see a drop in humidity?
One thing is for sure – it is going to be an interesting race!
