Friday morning I went to the gym solo because Jason
I think I only briefly mentioned I'd even be doing this race. I registered the day before it sold out because I needed something to get me to start running and I thought the jacket would be really cool.
Friday after work Meghan, my crazy runner friend, and I made the trek out to the National Harbor to pick up our packets. It was super out of the way and the hours of the expo were not great, but we made good time and it was well organized. We even had enough time left at the National Harbor to check out the Peeps Store!
I didn't even know Peeps came in flavors other than regular sugar! They also come in other shapes, like Christmas trees and hearts!
We also saw their giant Christmas tree. I don't think it had enough lights.
I'd never been to the National Harbor before and was pleasantly surprised. It's actually a new area and is very cute. It's like small piece of city with lots of different shops and restaraunts.
Seemed like a good place for a race! If you haven't checked out the links from yesterday's post you can see that there were "some issues" with the race itself. More on that later!
