|It would have been kind of hard to miss this sign.|
Although I wasn't happy with having to wait so long for information about packet pick up (they only emailed Thursday, with pick up starting on Friday), I have to hand to Fleet Feet, packet pick up went very quickly and smoothly, as everything was clearly labeled and they kept the lines moving. I really only had to wait in line for maybe 5 minutes. All you needed was your bib number email and/or an id. For anyone who didn't get the email or may have lost the email, they had stations set up where you could look up your bib number.
There wasn't really anything to the packet, however. Inside I found my bib, 4 safety pins, the gear check bag, my shirt, and....nope, that's it. No freebies, no coupons, no course map or event information...just the absolute basics. I did pick up a Magnificent Mile Passport, but I don't think I'll be using it, as the discounts it offers are either not very good or for places that I'm not interested in going to.
|Everything in the packet.|
|The entire market. Sorry, but I wasn't impressed.|
I'm trying to stay positive. I'm hoping for the best tomorrow morning. I'll let you know how it goes.
