Today was race expo day. None of my recent races had expos so I was looking forward to this one. We arrived at Lambeau Field around 2:30ish and went to the Club level where they had packet pick-up. I was shocked to see how many more half marathoners there are than full marathoners. Inside the bag was my bib, shirt, a Boston bracelet, and ticket to the spaghetti dinner. If the dinner cost less than $17 I probably would have wanted to go to that with the husband. $17 is way too much money for pasta! Sheesh. We all know I’m a cheapskate, right?
After picking up my bib it was time to walk through the expo. There were tons of clothing and shoe booths and booths for different races in the general area. I was happy to get a couple of discount codes for different races coming up in the next few months. One of the races is a fall race that I have been considering so that was nice.
We drove around a bit on our way from Green Bay to my in-laws. I got to see the sights in Manitowoc. Exciting stuff.
Our first stop was at Beerstens Confectionary in Manitowoc. Nothing says pre-race fuel like an ice cream sundae. It was delicious!
I thought the menu was cute. They had a lot of different specialty sundaes. Mine had tons of almonds in it. I think they served food as well but my eyes locked in on the sundaes and never looked away.
Afterwards we kept driving and saw a cow. I love cows.
To round out the evening we had a delicious carborific meal of lasagna (made all fancy like outside in a dutch oven, woah!), garlic bread, and salad.
I’m carbed up and hydrated. Time to get my bag ready for the morning and attempt to get some rest.
