My sister ended up going earlier with my dad to register for the 5K after they took a spinning class at the hotel’s gym this morning. Looks like we’ll both be running tomorrow!
When Ryan and I arrived around 11 a.m., the expo was hoppin’! We made sure to walk around all of the booths and check out the goodies.
I really, really wanted to buy a sparkly pink race skirt for tomorrow but immediately decided against it when I saw that the skirts were $62. I hope the sparkles have real crystals in them for that price!
I didn’t buy anything other than some Gu Chomps (my race day fuel of choice), but had a great time talking with some of the vendors.
I tried out The Stick, a neat massage stick, on my calves and that baby felt great! I can see why they’re popular with runners because the pressure from the stick felt great on my muscles.
Once we picked up my bib and race shirt, we headed home for lunch.
I made myself a roast beef sandwich with apple slices and an unpictured cup of rice pudding on the side.
Oatmeal bread is so darn delicious!
After hanging out with my family for a bit, my sister suggested hitting up Revolve, a local thrift store, and Starbucks as an afternoon activity. We bribed Ryan into coming with us with the promise of a Frappuccino.
Revolve had some amazing ‘80s clothes that made me wish I had an ‘80s-theme party on my radar.
Only $15 for that gorgeous little number. I was so tempted to buy it for a future ‘80s soiree, but decided against it since I still have this little baby in my closet…
After thrift store shopping (I got a dress for $8!), we drove to Starbucks to take advantage of their buy-one-get-one-free holiday beverages (2 – 5 p.m. through tomorrow!).
I ordered a peppermint mocha latte and loved every sip.
I think Ryan was quite a fan of his Frappuccino… and the whipped cream.
There we go…
Now we’re back at the house debating dinner plans. To go out or stay in? That is the question!
