Seattle Rock 'n' Roll Race Expo

Day one in Seattle was a fun time! The morning started off with a visit from Kristin, who hand-delivered my Oiselle Team Ambassador welcome kit to the hotel. It was fantastic to meet her in person and to chat for a few minutes. So happy I was in Seattle at the right time to meet up! 

Oiselle goodies, including a new color of my fave Distance Short & the racing singlet!

Next we headed out for brunch and the race expo. We took the monorail from Seattle Center to downtown - the first ever commercial monorail. Pretty cool.

Monorail time, reminded me of Disney World...

We arrived at the expo around 1 pm and it wasn't crowded yet at all. We grabbed the race swag and took our time walking around. 

Nice shirt design, but really large bibs

We found a friendly mirror in the Brooks apparel section.

Good mirror. Can I take you home?

I managed to shop a lot more than usual at this expo, not sure how that happened. New SweatyBands (buy 3 get a Run Seattle band free!), CEP Compression Socks, and Nuun + Nuun water bottle. Good stuff.


I headed to the blogger meet up at 3 pm, where I had the opportunity to meet bloggers I follow (like Maureen of Buttoning my Jeans) and to find new ones. It's so awesome to meet new people and to find new inspiration, I absolutely loved it.

Nice looking group of bloggers, huh?

Now, time to rest and eat good carb heavy food for dinner. See you post-marathon!
