Sunday I'm running my third half marathon in the Nike Women Half Marathon in DC. Nike is great at creating hype and have been releasing details as needed. Like the Tiffany's necklace we get at the finish line? We won't know till we get there. Also they have been selling a lot of DC and race related swag. Included three special pairs of shoes. People are buying it up. I've restrained myself thus far.... Although the fact that we don't see our free t-shirt till we finish may be helping.
Today after work I headed to the packet pick up and "expotique" with two coworkers who are also running the race. There weren't any lines and we received our bib, pace bracelet, and other goodies in no time. The Expotique was fun we received cards with codes to try and win a free pair of shoes, they had a booth to make customized signs, hair styling booth, make up booth, sports bra fitting, gait analysis, nuun drinks, and luna bars.

Then we visited the WE RUN sign by the waterfront and walked up to the Nike Store in Georgetown.
Along the wall were the names of all the runners.
|can you find my name?|
|do you see it now?|
Inside the store was crazy. The line to check out was weaving all around the store. We just looped around, checked out the special merchandise and caught a short talk/interview with Olympian Sanya Richards-Ross.
