Today, I am going to the runDisney Tower of Terror 10 Miler Race Expo! Hooray!
I love race expos. Which seems funny, coming from a girl who loathes shopping. I hate going to the mall, but could spend hours perusing the offerings at an expo.
But somehow, race expos are different. I love going into a giant room filled with vendors selling running gear, advertising their races, and handing out delicious free samples. I love to walk up and down every aisle and see what there is to see. I have discovered some awesome companies and some awesome races while browsing race expos.
(Of course, runDisney expos are extra fun because of all of the race merchandise. Same goes for races like the Rock and Roll series and Marine Corps.)
The place is also filled with excited and nervous runners, which makes for a fun atmosphere. And sometimes there are speakers to watch, famous runners to meet, and fun to be had. All in all, a good time.
Race expos are dangerous for my wallet, that’s for sure. But who knows what I might find? I will be sure to report back.
