Cap City Fitness Expo & Pre-Race Fuel

Happy Race Day! I ran the Cap City Quarter Marathon this morning. It was 6.55 miles, which was the perfect distance, but more on the race later!

Racing makes me so happy...

I went to the race expo downtown Friday after work. Everything moved pretty smoothly. The expo wasn't as spread out as the Rock N Roll expo, so it was a little crowded, but the more the merrier…

My friend was racing with me, so I wandered around for awhile waiting for her to get off of work. While walking, I ran into one of my best friends…Brooks…

Brooks girl for life

And then made a little impulse purchase. I've been so hesitant to leave the Pure Flow 2's behind, but the Pure Flow 3's felt perfect on my feet - I had to have them, and they were on sale! I can't wait to run in these...

Why can't I quit you?!

After the Expo, we met our friends for dinner at Spagio in Grandview, and the food was amazing. I ordered the salmon with asparagus and it came wrapped in some sort of wonton paper. It was such a great pre-race meal!

And of course, you cannot go to a restaurant in Grandview without stopping at Jenis. It's proven that you run faster if you eat ice cream the night before. Look it up...

Who is racing this weekend? 

What was your last impulse purchase? 

Best pre-race meal?
