walked to the trax station. trax to front runner. front runner to ogden. race expo. front runner back to SLC, trax again, walked home. 4 hours round-trip. 

1- i have said this before - i hate expos.

this one was the worst because a) i am working late tonight in SLC, so my only option was to make a big trip to ogden and back today. so inconvenient.b) i got there 5 minutes before it officially opened and there were already lines of people EVERYWHERE. c) i couldn't tell if i was at a race expo or a boutique/farmer's market---the booths were selling beads, stitched hand-purses, aroma therapy candles, and triathlon bikes. a frenzy!

2- banana count thus far: 2 1/2 yessssss......

3- shirt rating:  +2 from last year, but -1 because shirt lady was in a bad mood

Allie, you are so dang funny! I couldn't agree with you more about expos. Pretty sure they exhaust me thinking about them.

From sam on Fri, May 15, 2009 at 15:25:42 from

ooohh I like expos an excuse to buy stuff to do with running, but must admit that one sounds not so good....

and 4 hr round trip tiring.....

From paul on Fri, May 15, 2009 at 15:34:44 from

Long trip, but still beats driving. Good luck tomorrow. Our Logan farmer's market is tomorrow...perhaps I'll see if I can find some running stuff there. Does it work both ways?

My first expo was the SLC one last month. It was not what I expected it to be. Sounds like Ogden was even worse. At least they didn't have a contest for the city's largest vegetables. Sounds very much like a county fair.

Working late? how late? I thought you were staying in Ogden? Anyway, drive safe and see you at the finish line. Good luck speedy!!!

LOL yeah I like expos. They are the best. Ok some are great others are quite poor to what they should have at a race. Good luck tomorrow.

From josse on Fri, May 15, 2009 at 17:42:49 from

Good luck I am sooo excited for you. Have fun!!!

Sorry for the bad experience. I was fortunate to have a friend (not runner) pick my packet up for me.
