The runDisney merchandise booth was not crowded at all, nor was the checkout area. After choosing a few items, I got in line and waited less than 10 minutes to purchase my race souvenirs. As always, there was a huge assortment of goodies including headbands, cups, shirts, jackets, pins, magnets, Vinylmation and of course the ever popular "I Did It" shirts.
|I always buy the "I Did It" shirt. Someday I will make a quilt with them!|
While shopping in the runDisney booth, one of our readers stopped me to say hi. Emily was running the half marathon and we chatted for a few minutes about race strategy and then parted ways.
|Emily, ready for her first half marathon!|
|Don't you think Christine would look cute in this shirt!|
This shirt was very tempting to buy for Christine, but I refrained....I knew she would never wear it and I am practical like that! Don't worry though, I found something she will really like at another booth! I spent a little more time wandering around the Expo checking out a few of my favorite booths and making several purchases. Those included Sparkle Skirts, runDisney, and Sparkle Athletic, where I chatted with the lovely Kelly and bought a skirt for my running coach. Of course I could not miss seeing the medals at the runDisney booth! They had some fun new buttons that they were giving away that could be personalized. I chose to have Glass Slipper Challenge written on my button.You can see it above in the photo with my Expo loot! Jeff Galloway was also there and I chatted with him for a few minutes and of course had the obligatory photo taken. He is always so smiley and happy!
Little did I know then that I would be spending alot of time with Jeff and his lovely wife Barbara on Sunday morning while running the Princess Half Marathon! After picking up my art card from Lasting Commemoratives, I left the Expo to grab a bus back to the resort. All in all, it had been a very pleasant two hours and I was ready for lunch, my room to be ready and a shake out run!
