More Fitness Expo!
I have to admit I love Fitness Expos. I have had a love for free things and gift bags ever since I was a little girl and my dad would take me to the auto show. Back then I would come home with pounds of worthless stuff but come home and relish all of my goodies.
Not much has changed and today I took an hour out of work to go down to 18th St. to the More Fitness Expo. This was smaller than the PF Chang’s Expo but still had some great freebies and shops to browse running gear. I thankfully got to buy my SPIBELT and my Gracie’s Gear tank that I had passed over back in January. They had some great sales and being the recessionista that I am I couldn’t pass over fun running stuff!!
The More Half-Marathon this year has some great sponsors that were giving out some fun stuff. I got Vanilla Silk Soymilk and Cookies, Aquaphor Samples from Eucerin and a cool wristlet from Aquaphor as well. Below there is a picture of all of my goodies. In my gift bag were two magazines, Fitness Magazine as well as More along with some almonds and more coupons!!!
Interestingly enough we also got passed some very important information about overheating and hydration for the race. I am starting now and having some salty food as well as lots of water. I am going to make myself some Gatorade to drink before the race as well as some electrolyte supplements. For the race itself I love Sport Beans which are these amazing energizing jellybeans. I am not going for a personal best at all because of this weather. It would be silly and I’m about 90% sure I’ll do the Brooklyn Half-Marathon in May so maybe then I will hit my stride with this distance.
Sunday I am going to show up, get it done, have a cocktail and see my friend John’s Broadway show in the evening! I can’t wait to run with all of these amazing women. Today I saw a group of friends that were all running the marathon which means they are all over 40 which just was shocking since they looked not a day over 30. They were so cute taking photos at the Expo and in the subway make me think of all of the amazing women in my life that inspire me.
Sunday Sunday Sunday!!!
