Race Day Forcast:
The fun and somewhat ironic thing about this race is that it's so huge - it boasts being the largest 10K in the world - that you'll spend far more time at the Health and Fitness Expo than actually running the race itself.
Of the free items, I snagged some "Food Should Taste Good" brand chips, mini Larabars, a single-serving of Cascadian Farms granola, a free water bottle with the purchase of two tubes of Nuun ($10 = 24 drinks = $0.42/drink, which is pretty sweet, I think), and an insulated lunch bag that used to be a water bottle.
Other than the Nuun, I did spend money on just one more thing...
|Come to me, my pretties!|
Yes, I finally, finally, finally have my Wave Rider 15's!
I have been perpetually putting off the purchase (say that five times fast) until today, when I saw them on a sale table, practically lit from the heavens above, and possibly with a choir of angels hiding underneath the tablecloth beckoning to me. A vendor was selling used shoes - shoes that were worn once by the buyers and then returned because of ill fit or the wrong size. The only way you could tell these shoes had been worn at all was by seeing the evidence of a little dirt or grit from the pavement on the bottoms of the soles. And honestly, I feel awkward in sneakers when they're pristine, just-out-of-the-box white, so their "used" status would not bother me at all.
And they were $50.00.
That's right, $50.00!
I win at being a cheap-a$$ :-D
Which races do you think have the best expos?
Are you running the Peachtree or have you in the past? This is my second, and I hope to become a PTRR streaker.
Have you ever scored a wicked deal on running or fitness apparel? Where?
