I made the trek down to McCormick Place for the Shamrock Shuffle Health and Fitness Expo this morning. Having never gone to McCormick Place before, I had to look up how to get there on public transit. One train and one bus made for a long but pretty easy trip.
|There were only three other people on my bus heading to the expo this morning.|
|This place is huge!|
|Thank you, sign! I will go in that direction!|
|Packet Pick-Up! I found it!|
|So many booths, so little time.|
|I really like the shirt design and the super bright green color.|
I did a bit of shopping, buying a couple of headbands (my hair is too short to tie back and too short for bobby pins to stay put, but just long enough to get in my face when I run) and a new short sleeve running shirt (60% off = awesome).
Then, I hit up a bunch of booths for info about upcoming races, organizations, and, of course, some freebies. Everyone was there - representatives from CARA, CES, Athletico, and a bunch of various charity teams. I made sure to stop at the CES booth, which happened to be staffed by one of the awesome coaches for spring training out of Lincoln Square.
|Oh, CES, I think I love you. And your awesome coaches.|
|The most random freebie today had to be the box of Minute Rice. Thanks for the groceries, expo!|
|All the stuff I was given today, including my packet and shirt.|
