The Expo and Pro Friends

 

We kicked off the weekend a little early yesterday with a fun Vega hydrator mocktail and an afternoon swim session.

Somehow I convinced the men that it was a good idea to go to the expo together so I didn’t have to go today when it was crowded.

Showing up to a race expo on a Friday night about 15 minutes before it closes is pretty smart. It wasn’t crowded at all.

Funny though I still managed to get side tracked.

I found some cool new shades by Oculus who makes the other sunglasses I race in.

They had a pretty nice selection.

They also had some really cute shoe charms.

The boys were quick to spot the HALO booth

and all the cool mannequin heads.

2014-08-15 18.55.37

We helped close down the expo there.

Thanks America’s Finest City Half Marathon for the cool bag.

2014-08-15 18.59.35

Thank you Judah for helping Mommy carry it.

2014-08-15 19.01.34

Thank you San Diego for being so beautiful.

2014-08-15 19.02.41

And thank you NuttZo for the to go packets.

2014-08-15 19.00.26

We got them for the shake out run this morning, but they came in very handy last night in the car as a snack.

2014-08-15 19.19.55

Yep. They’re good just from the packet.

Here’s a random cool cloud to show you from the way home.

2014-08-15 19.34.32

Oh and here’s our new pet that Joaquin caught. His name is “Sizzy” or “Thizzy”. I’m not sure, but whatever it is I don’t pronounce it correctly when I say it.

Taught boot camp this morning. Went from boot camp to Target in my cool new socks.

2014-08-16 09.25.28

Yes, that’s still an old race tag on my shoe. I don’t know why I leave them on there.

Had a quick chia shot in the car

2014-08-16 09.31.41-1

and then met up with all these cool kids for our little Pro Compression shake out run.

It was a bit toasty out there, but that didn’t seem to stop anyone.

2014-08-16 10.10.49

Heck yes that’s Sarah. She’s the Pro queen.

Even Amy convinced her hubby to come out and run a short 5K with us and Tracy came out with her 6 week old.

After the run we got to chat a bit. It’s always so darn fun meeting people in real life after you’ve known each other for such a long time through the blog world.

Pro Compression hooked us up with some fun prizes to give away at the end.

I present to you the winners.

2014-08-16 10.50.36

Even the Silent Assassin came out.

2014-08-16 10.59.05

He brought me some special chilies to plant.

2014-08-16 11.31.24

I’m so excited!

A lot of people brought old shoes to donate. A local friend’s 11 year old daughter is running her own community service event and collecting shoes for the homeless around the world. Isn’t that so cool?

2014-08-16 10.59.22

These good people. Always ready to help others out.

2014-08-16 10.59.35

It was a great morning.

I’ll be seeing this girl in Kauai in just two short weeks.

2014-08-16 11.00.21

My friend Leslie is a trail running rockstar and she was the one who warned me about the race last weekend. We met for the first time today and she promised she’d teach me a trick or two about the trails.

2014-08-16 11.16.55

These two cute local mamas, Kendyl and Alicia are some cool Instagram friends.

2014-08-16 11.26.42

And, THIS is why I’m on lunch picture taking probation.

2014-08-16 13.16.11

Yeah, it took me forever to put this awesome salad beast together and when I thought I’s take a picture of my masterpiece this happened.

Lovely.

 

Have a great rest of your weekend!

    I have to admit, when I saw your lunch fail picture on Instagram it made me laugh pretty hard! The things we do to get a good food pic. :) When you’re in Kauai you have to go eat at Hamura Saimin! It’s this tiny hole in the wall restaurant, but such a fun local experience and delicious!
