ROCK ‘N’ ROLL MARATHON and HALF MARATHON
EXPO – THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 2014
As soon as we arrived in Seattle on Thursday, we went straight over to the Pyramid Alehouse to enjoy our post flight meal. Once satisfied, we walked on over to the Expo to pick up our goods. First I had a little fun messing around…..
Then we went over for our very first Tweet-Up of the weekend with Ryan Anke@RyanAnke. It was so nice meeting him for the first time and I know it won’t be the last as we had a great time checking out the Expo together! Ryan also introduced us to @gametiime and @runwithwes. Was very nice meeting them as well. Thanks Ryan!
After we walked around for a while, I went over to play at The Brooks Run Happy Island. I have done over 15 RnR races so needless to say I’ve been to my fair share of their Expos but this one happened to be especially fun! I walked out of the Run Happy Island with all those great prizes you see pictured above and I had a good time winning them. I even rode the Giant Bucking Shoe! Have pictures but NOT posting them!
This is the area where we had our 2nd Tweet-Up of the day with Sharon@shanks324. It was great meeting up with her and hope to do it again soon! Sharon is also credited with giving us the suggestion to visit Snoqualmie Falls which we enjoyed on Sunday (more on this in my vacation portion of this post). Thanks Sharon!
I usually make a few purchases during these Expos and this one was no exception. Is this not the PERFECT run shirt for this RunninRocker or what?!?! InkNBurn
AND look at the cool bag, which is now my favorite backpack, that came with it….
Also had to pick up a couple boxes of my favorite protein bar powercrunch………..
Couldn’t leave without a stop at the Chocolate Milk booth…
After our fun time at the Expo we drove up to one of our favorite hotels right on the water in Mukilteo The Silver Cloud Inn. The views from our room are just crazy beautiful and the sunset out there is so late! This picture was taken from our window at 9:35 p.m. Breathtaking!
Friday we took the Ferry, which is right next to our hotel, over to Whidbey Island and spend the day there. More on this when I post our vacation portion of this trip. For now, I will try to stay on track with this Expo/Race section!
