The expo was busy today. Shock. I was worried as I approached the building. There was a line a quarter mile long outside for people waiting to pick up their packets. We stood there a moment and then a volunteer made it known this was the half marathon line. Marathoners go on inside. Which I did and found there to be NO LINE at all so I picked up my stuff really quickly.
That left more time to shop. But I bought nothing. I like the ING orange and blue but they are not my color and, in Florida, I would be mistaken for a Gator fan.
I did stand on this sensor machine to find that I put more weight on my left foot than the right; and that there is too much pressure falling on a spot where it tends to get hurt - between my toes on the left side, in the meaty parts. I did not want to hear any more about that and walked away.
I spoke to Rachel from Nashville on the cell phone over the din of the expo. She and Brent were out in a mall taking in Atlanta. We agreed to not overwork ourselves by trying to meet up today. Maybe tomorrow somehow.
Dinner was at the house and it was good. I am stuffed. I am also more rested too. We have a plan for the cheer team to see me at miles 14 and 16.
Thanks for the good wishes. I picked up a 4:40 pace band. We'll see if that slows me down to start; which is what I need to do.
