The official start to marathon weekend - the expo!

Today marks the official start of the Walt Disney World Marathon weekend with the opening of the race expo!  Every race weekend starts with excitement and that only is amplified by attending the race expo where you'll pick up your bib and race packet.  We look forward to these events because we often bump into friends, are able to peruse great running gear and get to kick off our race weekends!  For this year's marathon weekend, we have a pretty lengthy agenda so we plan to spend a good deal of time there today.  We'll be perusing lots of the booths, checking out new products, maybe snagging a few samples and whatnot.  

Here's what is on our to do list:
- Pick up race bibs
- Pick up race packets (shirts, gEAR check bags, etc.)
- Pick up race packet for a friend
- Pick up race retreat wristbands
- Check out the runDisney merchandise
- See the latest and greatest runDisney New Balance shoes in person
- Check out the deals at the MarathonFoto booth
- Pick up a new silver headband at the Sparkly Soul Booth (mine is MIA)
- Visit the lovely girls of Sparkle Athletic
- Pick up free art card at Lasting Commemorative (get the voucher here)
- Check out the Speaker Series - there are a few Dopey-centric posts
- Pick up Pam's Dooney & Bourke bag
