Sunday was my fourth running of the Long Branch Half Marathon, which was also my first ever half marathon!
A lot of my friends were running it, which made it extra special.
I went to the expo on Friday, since I had an unexpected day off. I was picking up my bib, as well as Eileen and Gigi's bibs. The process went smoothly and I walked the small expo. I was looking for purple compression socks but they only had a brand I have never heard of, so I moved on. Turns out, I didn't actually need them anyway.....
I hit all the booths and went to visit Geico, since they give out the best reusable shopping bags. They were giving people three spins on a slot machine. I waited forever for my turn. No one was winning. The prize was a tech shirt. If you won and wore the shirt for the race, you would get a free 15 minute massage at the finish. I had already picked my awesome flat mama so I wasn't interested in the massage, but who doesn't want a free tech shirt?
Finally my turn. Spin one. Fail. Spin two. Fail. Spin three. Winner! I collected my shirt but had to get it in men's medium. The women's large would have fit my size 2 daughter.
When I get to my car, I checked my phone and saw there was a comment on my flat mama.
