One of my favorite moments at the expo was meeting Jeff Galloway. He's so personable and fun. We had a little conversation about the marathon and he reminded to save my energy for the first half so I have enough left for the last half. This race was huge for me so I soaked up every word of advice he gave. This was his 22nd time to run it ya know! Not to mention I was going into this solo. Thinking about running this alone made me so nervous for some reason. Little did I know how amazing it would turn out to be!
We ended up making a couple of trips to the expo. We just couldn't get enough! I was able to get me a pair of the New Balance RunDisney shoes, which I'm so in love with! :) I also laid my eyes and hands on this year medal for the first time, and was able to see all the other race medals which just got me excited to run more Disney races. Just being at the expo was making me so excited. I knew the marathon was going to be much more than I had ever imagined.
