Chicago RnR Expo = Good Deals and Epic Tatas

Good morning!

I'm finally far enough out of the post-race haze of exhaustion to write about the race. 

Early on Saturday morning, my mom and I drove to Chicago, picking up Rachel along the way.  We stopped at an amazing Jewish deli in Skokie for lunch... does it get any better than a giant corned beef sandwich with extra mustard for pre-race food? 

We headed to McCormick Place for the expo, and it did not disappoint.  For those of you who haven't done a Rock 'n Roll race... it's worth it just to see what a circus the expo is.  I am usually not an expo person, but we still ended up browsing around for a few hours scoring some great deals.

We posed for some goofy pictures:

Me and Rachel, trying to be confident.

Rachel tripping the fast lady runner.

And then we saw her.

Check out the sweater puppets on this broad.

 Seriously, who is sitting in some factory, making mannequins, and saying to himself, "You know what would really sell more clothes?  Extra huge boobies with two inch nipples." 

Rachel and I were giggling like elementary school girls for a good fifteen minutes after we spied her.

Mentally, I was feeling so nervous it was making me nauseous. 

We stopped at the PF Chang's booth for a fortune cookie... and mine was pretty appropriate.

For those of you with crappy eyesight like myself, it says "We're so busy watching out for what's just ahead of us that we don't take time to enjoy where we are."
 It was actually around this time that I began feel little twinges of confidence amidst the sea of anxiety I felt like I was going to freaking drown in.

We had some dinner at Giordano's pizza, and were all in bed by nine...

Tomorrow, I'll tell you all about the big day... on my big day!  (It's my birthday tomorrow, and Rachel's birthday today!!)
