Out of tradition I decided to travel into San Francisco for the Nike Women’s (Half) Marathon (NWM) this Friday. Granted, now that I only live 50 miles away it seems a little early, but allowed me to catch up with my “original” Austin Team in Training team.
As tradition dictates we started with lunch at Lori’s Diner, then headed to the Expo (as always overcrowded and just a marketing gig) and then on to the Nike store. Since I already overloaded on race swag last weekend at the early race packet pick-up, it was a short affair today.
Some coffee with the team and reminiscing over past NWM races and the afternoon concluded with a last bit of retail therapy at Macy’s. By the way if you read this and still want race swag, go to Macy’s: same stuff and you can use the 10%-off coupon in your race bag. And the lines are WAY shorter. 🙂
A dinner tradition tonight somewhere (I didn’t remember that we had a dinner tradition) and maybe sleep in my new Nike running shirt?
