This weekend was quite eventful as it was my first ever Half Marathon, but that deserves its own post of course.
Friday my friend Kelly and I took L with us up to Milwaukee to pick up our race packets. It was a girls day! The packet pickup was at the Italian Center in Milwaukee and was well organized. This was the biggest race expo I had been to. We got our packets in seconds and walked around. I got a 13.1 race magnet and sunglasses and Kelly got a sweatshirt and sunglasses. L made me a running sign. I was going to buy the finishers shirt but we thought it would jinx us from finishing.
Once we were done we headed down to Panera and had lunch. I tried the steak power salad and it was excellent! L had the Turkey sandwich and liked it a lot. Once we were done we went to the outlet mall for a bit. The only thing I got was two new Coach purses:
I am currently using the shell purse and are loving it for summer! L was getting a bit stir crazy at the outlet mall so we did not stay long!
Saturday was the race, I'll blog about that in the next post. Sunday I was recovering. I took L to the pool for a bit, the water helped my legs feel so much better! Other than that we relaxed and recovered from the weekend.
