Expo Fun

Not too much to say.  I have been in a funk but I am back!

Today, I took the family to the Expo for the Rock and Roll Half here in Providence.  This is not a race I am doing, because, originally, we were supposed to be away.  When that fell through, I took a look at some of the vendors and knew I had to be there.

Women Run, my favorite company were going to be there, as well as Running Skirts.  I wanted to shop without having to order online and most importantly, I wanted to meet the Women Run ladies.

If you do not know what Women Run are all about, then you need to check them out.  For starters, their manifesto says it all.  When I was just starting to run, I would read it and know I could do it.  Second, their products rock.  They feel good, look awesome, fit right and hold up.  What more do you want?

As far as Running Skirts, well they are awesome too.  I left with a great skirt that I had wanted after seeing it on line and plan to wear it at my next race.  (race TBA)  Every time I wear one of their skirts, I get complimented.  There is no reason you can't look cute while busting your butt and covered in sweat.
Too much?  No, I don't think so.
I also got some cool samples, and a Spibelt for $12, plus a couple shirts with sayings that I like.  Peace, Love, Run, what else is there, right?  Oh, and a 13.1 magnet for the car.  I won't put it on the car until after October 14th, but I like knowing it's here and waiting for me to show it off.

As an extra bonus, the excitement that surrounded us was incredible.  People were happy to be there and you could tell they couldn't wait to get to the start line.  I wish I could of bottled it!  This is a race on my bucket list, as well as R and R Philly.  Have you ever ran a Rock and Roll?  Is it as cool as I think it is?

As far as actually running, tomorrow I plan to get a few miles in.  The last time I ran was a week ago.  Sometimes you just need a break and I am refreshed and ready to go!  I don't think I messed with my training too much.  The Nike Women's Half is 56 days away.  I will be more than ready.

As long as my hip holds up, I am planning on 3 to 4 miles.  If my hip does not hold up, well then, I think it's time to see a doctor.

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend and your runs.

Run Strong, Think Big!


  1. Thinking of you- can't wait to hear all about it!

    1. Just got back. Felt really good while I was running. Hip is acting up a little now. Wish I knew why!
