I am now officially running the Cox Providence Marathon!
I went to the expo to switch from the half to the full and get my bib and guess what...I got a generic bib (Bay State Race Services)! They ran out of official marathon bibs. They only ordered 1500 and they have over 1800 marathoners. So for my first ever marathon I will be running with a no name bib! :( Maybe I will write the name of the race across the top. That's it, it is time to get creative!
I made it in and out of the expo and I only spent $3! I bought a magnet from Women Run. I thought they had a cool logo. The expo had a few interesting vendors and some charities, but for the most part it was a just a pickup for race bibs and T-shirts (which are unisex and huge). Get there early ladies, because you are going to want a smaller shirt than usual. I wear a women's medium race shirt and went with the unisex small. I put it on over my long sleeve and it seemed okay. We will see when I take it for a spin the first time.
See you on Sunday everyone! Race strong and have fun!
