2007 PF Chang's Rock and Roll Marathon Health Expo

On Friday night Amy and I went to the Health Expo at the Convention Center in downtown Phoenix. It was well organized with virtually no lines to get my bib, t-shirt and goodie bag. Lots of vendors and stuff to buy. It was exciting because this is my first big race. It's billed as the World's largest Marathon and Half Marathon. They are expecting up to 39,000 runners in both races.

I, also got to meet Runnergirl (Jennifer) and MNfirefly (Denise). Amy and I met them at Seamus McCaffrey's Irish pub downtown. The four of us had a great time talking about running, blogging and life in general. I will have a picture of the three of us runners soon.





I'm 39364 in the race and will start in corral 19. Hopefully, I will get to the start line before the winner finishes. I plan to take my camera on the run, so expect some more photos. I consider this more of a tour, than a race.
