The packet pick-up was a health expo so it was mostly spas and people who wanted to resurface my face. Not great. We got there at three which is when I thought it was supposed to start but it didn't start until four. So I was ready to be all this place was unorganized blah blah blah but no I am just special and can't read. They were actually really accommodating considering I showed up an hour early. They found my number, shirt and race packet all while still trying to set up. I on the other hand stood there probably looking confused as to why everything was such a mess. Ugh I hate when I bring the dumb to a situation. So the volunteers were great at the expo. Since I am not into having my face shot at with laser beams or hearing about vitamins really the expo was kind of a bust for me but it was an event to bring awareness to skin cancer so just fine for the theme of the race.

|Race Packet stuff: mostly flyers but did score chap stick, band aids, lotion and an awesome long sleeve bamboo tech shirt|
After swinging by Comfort Inn to check in
(not bad for $79 dollars a night and only a 5 minute drive to the start) we went on the hunt for dinner and found
After D and I headed back to the hotel but got side tracked at Dairy Queen (or at least I did). I ended up with a microscopic caramel crunch blizzard and D got some chocolaty peanut buttery deliciousness. He shared since mine was gone in about five seconds and I kept staring at him real hard as he tried to eat his. A keeper this one.
|No the blizzard is not bigger than it appears|
