Ready to Run - ORF Expo

I had a great time at the Oakland Running Festival Expo today. I haven't been to one since the little one for Malibu last November, and I have missed the excitement and energy of so many runners in one place. Even better, we had a 'Tweet Up' so I met quite a few Twitter peeps. It was so nice to put a face with a name (Twitter handle?) and to meet people in the area. I found fun new people to follow too; Twitter is great for running motivation and community.

And, a special thanks to Brian (@PavementRunner) - I won the entry to Oakland from his blog giveaway and he organized the Tweet Up.

As for the expo, it was a good size and organized well. No long lines to wait in when I was there, cute long sleeve tech shirts for the half, and little shops to buy running stuff. I came home with a cute pair of Sock Guy socks with cats on them. Yeah, I'm a dork. They also let you exchange shirts for a different size if needed, a nice bonus and not too common from my experience. I went up a size because it fit a little small. Here is the shirt and colorful bib (love it!) And those two little tabs on the bottom right of the bib in the photo? Those are beer tickets. Oh yeah.

Tonight, we're going out for pasta with friends and turning in early for a good night's sleep. I can't wait for tomorrow!
