I had signed up for this race at last year's expo (I went to the expo even though I wasn't running the race last year to meet friends) because of the great expo price. And guess what, I signed up already for 2017 once again because of this special! I was a bit hesitant about this race as it wasn't the traditional DC race course that I was used to going through the monuments and Haynes Point. I also saw the elevation profile at mile six and thought, "That a hill!". I was also a bit hesitate with parking and getting to the race because this race had a different start and finish line. I had to park close to the finish line but metro to the start line.
I went to the expo on Thursday at the DC Armory.
I was glad that I chose to drive there because I pre-purchased the parking for race day and it was in Lot 6 which is where I had to park for the expo. Because of this discovery, I re-evaluated my plans for race day to allow for more time to get to the metro for the start line. The expo was smaller this year but I had more fun!
I did a Toyota challenge and drove a new Rav4, met with the Balega rep, Dan (being a Balega Impi Ambassador this was exciting for me) and see the new socks which I love, saw some friends and just enjoyed myself.

I spent so much time at the expo and had a blast! Personally, I think that the RNR expos are some of the best running expos. Anyone else feel this way? :) Of course, great swag too!
I came home feeling excited about this race! Til next time and remember, my journey continues...If you can dream it, you can do it as Walt Disney said!
