Friday afternoon, we drive out to the States and get there in time to hit the expo and check stuff out. I was looking for shoes, compression capris, and dual layer socks. I left with Toms. Go figure! I picked up my race kits for both races, headed to the hotel to check in and change and head right back. I was dreading it because I didn't know anyone else who was doing it. That was short-lived. I pulled in, wandered towards the start line and instantly found a group of about 10 people from my local run club. I was so happy to see them!!! I instantly felt better. We knocked out the 5 km which was super slow going because the majority of people were walkers and there was about 10,000. Wowsers. That would be medal #1.
