Today was packet pick up day; and Kelly and I endured torrential downpours to journey to On The Run on our lunch break.
Although we did have heavy rain, we did not have cows; and we were able to make it to our destination without any problems.
Our packet is pretty cool. It came with my bib with my name on it, a customized cap, a Brooks long-sleeved shirt, and Mardi Gras beads all in this really cute purple drawstring bag. Love it! Except....the shirt is florescent green! It is so bright! I can't imagine wearing it because I would look like a bright green tennis ball! See exhibit A below:
But the bibs are cute. Ours are purple and the full marathoners' bibs are green. I read that 80% of the 1500 runners are doing the half. Should make for a good, non-crowded run. I am just hoping that it doesn't rain, but if it does we've got a cool cap to use so the sweat-mixed rain doesn't get in my eyes.
