When I got to the expo, I went straight back to the packet pick up. There was no line. Yeah! I grabbed my number, chip and ear warmers and was off to explore the expo. There were so many booths so I just wandered around. I didn't need anything specific but thought I might find something I wanted.
I got to chat with Carrie Tollefson for a little while. I was surprised that she remembered me from a couple weeks earlier. I was at the Mac track with a coworker filming some exercise progression videos for runners and she was there doing a workout. She remember seeing me there and asked about my work. She is really the nicest person. It was so fun chatting with her.
I continued to wander through the booths when I ran into a friend. He also happens to be the President of the Twin Cities in Motion. The organization that puts on the TC Marathon. I had to get a photo with him. I can't believe I forgot to get a photo with Carrie Tollefson. He wished me good luck in the marathon and was off to his marathon duties for the day.
I really liked the Twin Cities Marathon poster and debated on whether or not to buy one. In the ended, I decided not to buy it. I wasn't sure where I would put it.
I grabbed a photo at the Medtronic's booth. I am not sure why I didn't throw my hands in the air like I was winning and was crossing the tape first. I will do that next time. It is the only time I will cross any tape first.
The expo was fun. There was so much stuff to buy. I can't believe I left the expo with only my race packet.
Coming soon...the Twin Cities Marathon Recap.
