I just asked this question on twitter, but it’s almost 5:00pm and I was wondering if it’s too early to be in pajamas on a Friday night. If it’s wrong, well, then I don’t want to be right. Ha ha.
So, I had an unfortunate incident of burning my zucchini pizzas last night. Yeah, weird huh?
They were still pretty tasty. Nothing wrong with a little crispy chicken on top. Ha.
So darn cute for Saint Patrick’s Day.
I wore last year’s Saint Patrick’s Day socks for the LA Marathon. They got me a PR back then so I might have to try it again this year. Ha.

No workout at all today. It was time for a break. It was also time to convince the family to tag along to the race packet pickup for the Women’s Running Half Marathon San Diego.
Random, but I never leave home without these two things in my purse.
Just thought I’d show you.
Funny how our family days always seem to start the same way. You know, like this.
Same Starbucks order pretty much every time- mocha for Daddy, Americano for Mommy, cold soy milk (no ice) for Judah and warm chocolate milk for Joaquin. Not the healthiest order, but we don’t do the family Starbucks thing that often so we go all out.
I like to make my coffee last as long as possible too. It survived the whole trip down to San Diego
and even into the expo.
The expo was relatively small, but it made it the pick up process really easy and they had some really great booths there.
How cute is this shirt by the way?
Oh Maui Jim sunglasses how I miss you.
Ha ha. Back on our honeymoon Andrew and I both got a pair of Maui Jims. We thought we were so cool. We laugh now as life has changed quite a bit and neither of us know what happened to our pricy sunglasses.
Passed by the GU booth. They have this whole GUmocracy vote with their new flavors.
I have yet to try them, but I think caramel macchiato might be the flavor for tomorrow. I can’t decide.
The race shirt and goody bag this year are super cute. Loving the V-neck.
Before I did too much chatting we got a quick picture with my main escorts. They’re pretty pumped they don’t have to go tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn with me.
I got super excited when I saw the Lorna Jane booth. Love, love, love all their stuff and this was the first time I ever saw them at a race expo.
The lovely Sarah showed me all the new fun clothes they have that just came out.
I came home with these two items.
It wasn’t until I got home that I noticed the cool twisting back on the tank.
These blue shorts were too snazzy to pass up.
Last year at this same expo I met Emily with Active Pacific sunglasses. I had to stop to tell her that the glasses I got last year from her are still my favorite racing and running glasses. They are the only ones that are light and stay put and don’t fog.
Seriously, love these glasses for such a great price.
They have a new pink color that just came out.
I came home with a pair for tomorrow’s race.
I had to stop at the Damsel in Defense booth.
Oh my goodness, the COOLEST self defense products.
I always tell myself I need to be more careful when running etc. and this booth had it all from pepper spray
to a keychain kubaton to even a little stun gun.
I came home with this small pepper spray.
I like that it can just clip on my belt and that it has 18% OC (That’s more than most pepper sprays) and that it leaves a UV ultraviolet dye on whomever you spray.
No one better try to mess with me now.
One last booth to visit was the Zooma Napa Valley Half Marathon and 10K.
Man I want to run this race. What a great reason to go to Napa, yes? Has anyone run it?
I took a little longer than I thought at the expo. Shocker. The men were very kind to entertain themselves for as long as they did. We had to find the ferry and some food fast.
So we did.
We ate at Candelas on the Bay in Coronado.
Andrew enjoyed a spicy Bloody Mary with his lunch. It was much needed after the long expo.
This was our view.
This was my paleo jicama burrito.
It was darn good, even though it sat on the table for a bit because right as it came out the boys conveniently had to use the facilities. Wasn’t that nice? They have some good timing. Maybe they were getting me back for taking so long at the expo.
it was a great day. I was thankful the race shirt was short sleeve too since it got a little toasty out and I needed a little wardrobe change for the way home.
And now, yes, I’m in my pajamas.
We’re going to have a little dinner and call it a night.
Have a great weekend!
Anyone racing this weekend?
What’s the coolest thing you’ve found at an expo?
Do you run with pepper spray? Or just carry it in your purse? Have you ever had to use it?
