Packet pick up was located at Fleet Feet Sports' home in the Roosevelt Collection shopping center, and they definitely used the prime location to set the stage for a very nice little Fitness Meets Fashion outdoor market. They had a couple sponsors present, a couple athletic clothing vendors, even a balloon-tying clown on stilts! I finally got to pick up some Fellow Flowers gear - I've been dying to get my hands on a Fierce dark pink flower shirt, and I was also able to grab one of my favorite inspirational quotes on a big magnet.
They lucked out with weather as beautiful as the view!
What's that in the corner? A second race bib?! But for who...
So I guess the next step is to reserve me some parking (using SpotHero, of course) and eat me some carbs tomorrow! With packet in hand, it already feels like race day - I'm so excited!
***UPDATE: I found out after the race that the tank top, originally advertised as a UPF material, was switched in the final days before the race. This explains why it seemed lower quality to me - it actually was lower quality than advertised. Also, there were supposed to be slightly different designs for the two race distances, but they were condensed into one. I didn't pay for it (this was a free entry for me) but it's a shame they couldn't provide what was advertised.***
