Disney Race Expos.....runner shopping heaven!

The race Expos for the Rundisney events are absolutely fabulous. Some runners will spend virtually no time at the Expo except to get their packet while others will spend quite a few hours listening to the guest speakers, checking out the numerous vendor booths and having something to eat or drink at the restaurant inside ESPN Wild World Of Sports.

In a prior post I admitted to my obsession with the wonderful runDisney apparel associated with the races. That being said, I do try to stick to a budget when shopping at the Expo. Most recently, I decided to award myself a certain amount of dollars each week depending on how well I do with my weekly workout/training schedule. Christine is doing something similar and pays herself for each workout.  This money will be saved for spending at the Expo when I always find numerous race related merchandise items I cannot live without!

There are ways to save on your purchases too. At the runDisney booth, I use my Chase Disney Visa card and receive 10 percent off my purchase of $75.00 or more. If you are going to the Expo for the first time, be sure to go with proper ID, signed waiver (they release these on the runDisney site a few weeks before the race) and you will sail through packet pickup and then be able to enjoy everything else associated with the Expo.

  2. I'm really pumped for the Wine and Dine expo since I've never done that race before. And I love to cook so I'm excited for there to be cooking/food-themed gear. Hope to see you there! :) - Christine
