Congrats, Rachel! You will be receiving a copy of Clean Food, and Janet...you'll get a copy of Clean Start. I think this worked out perfectly based on your comments, dontcha think? The gods at Random.org must have been at your sides this weekend. Keep us all posted on your cooking! Until then, let's talk about race expos. Since the Shamrock Shuffle is held in Chicago, the race expo took place in a convention hall on Navy Pier. If you've ever been to Navy Pier, you know this place is a huge cluster of tourists.
Most major races hand out their packets (race numbers and time chips) at an expo, which is basically a miniature health and fitness fair. Think race sponsors, health and fitness related products, race gear...free stuff. Every booth there wants you to know and love them or their products, so they're all too willing to give you samples and other fun things like pens and stickers.
At this particular expo, the Clif samples were flowing free for all to munch on.
I didn't take as many pics as I had hoped to, mostly because I was too busy checking things out. It happens. Lots to look at. Particularly the heart rate monitors at the Polar table. I don't have one, but I want to get one. Any suggestions? I was looking at one of the basic models that comes with a chest strap. Love them or hate them? I value your opinion.
I also value my new wish bracelets.
I value her, too. More than my wish bracelets.
Race recap tomorrow!
Question: Do you have any crazy traditions that only your sibling or siblings would appreciate? And really, do give me your opinion on a good heart rate monitor if you have one. I'm seriously on the market for one!
