I am here! Actually I have been here for a few hours. So excited....
I checked out the expo this am where I got my bib and race tee! Nice race tee!
Had a great lunch at PF Chang's and now resting at the hotel. I know I live in Long Beach but I am making a weekend to me for this race. The expo had lots of great things for runners, bikers, and anyone who is active. I am still looking into getting compression stockings for my marathon in January. Tried some coconut water today and I can say that it is not really my cup of tea. Kinda nasty actually. Also, I started to realize that I will need to get some "cold" running gear for January. It is in Florida, and I know it does not get freezing cold, but at 530am....it will be uncomfortably cold for me in my current running gear.
I was fortunate to get a hotel that is right down the street from the race start/finish. In a bit I am going to forage for dinner. More to post latter.
