The Trip and The Expo

Never having run a marathon before, I was a bit unsure what to expect from the Spirit Airline expo where I was heading once I got from NY to Myrtle Beach.  We left NYS about 7 pm on Thursday and headed south.  I drove for a while and then my 20 year old drove.  Thankfully, he could do that as I was really concerned about not getting a great night’s sleep the night before the night before the race.  The main goal for the trip down was to get past Washington, DC as I did not want to have to deal with commuter traffic on Friday morning.  I was thinking we would start looking for a place to stay after getting past DC.


Well, the best laid plans!  We drove until a rest area in North Carolina before stopping and slept in the car.  I got quite a bit of sleep but do not think that my son did.  I drove from that point into Myrtle Beach and we ended up there well before I had planned.  I hit the expo about 11 am but was there for over almost two hours.  We went to the Expo.  We walked up to the race start.  We had a little tailgate in the parking lot of egg salad sandwiches.


Below is a little photo slide show of the expo and it ends with my clothing laid out in the hotel room for Saturday’s start.
