The expo was nothing to write home about and in fact, was slightly disappointing. Of course, the last expo I went to was the best of the best, the Boston Marathon expo. At Columbus, there were probably close to 100 booths set up but there were no free samples of anything....no cliff bars, no cereal, no gu, no nothing. Most of the booths were selling clothes or promoting other races. Despite my disappointment, it didn't stop me from spending some money.

Purchase #1: Run Columbus t-shirt
Purchase #2: Run Cbus technical shirt
Purchase #3: 26.2 Pint Glass...I'm wearing the "free" race shirt....and by free I mean it cost $65 since that was the race registration fee
Once Todd & I got back from the expo, I made a pasta dinner and we watched the Spirit of the Marathon to get me pumped up for the race. Of course, I fell asleep about halfway through.
