5k packet pickup and a 10k

Today I went to the “Expo” to pick up my race packet for tomorrow. I’m running a 5k associated with the Kansas City Marathon.

I gotta tell you, I was kinda disappointed…

I mean, they had all these different items for sale, all geared towards runners, but it just seemed like a bunch of overpriced junk. Some items I knew I could get cheaper online, others were simply OVERPRICED and I knew I could get them cheaper at Walmart, for heaven’s sake! I’m glad I got to see it, but overall I just don’t know why so many runners think Expos are big deal!

I drove past a few different points on my route, and discovered that the hill on that first mile isn’t as bad as I had feared. But it’s still a hill!

I’m still somewhat nervous still but feeling as good as I ever will, I guess. Tomorrow’s 5k will be tough, but I’m just praying for the best.

Oh- and I officially signed up for a 10k in November. Crazy!
