NYC : Sidelights

1. At the Expo

 It was crowded but not chaotic. I was able to get my bib, race kit and get my Dtagged checked in less than 15 minutes. 

Trying on shoes you only see in RW was pure bliss. Lots of freebies too.

Here are the stuff  in the goody bag and freebies from the Expo.

3. Continental Airlines International Friendship Run

This was the run scheduled the Saturday before the Marathon. All international runners have been invited. Dingdong, Vicky, Doray and I decided to join the fun and so did a few thousand international runners. Since it was Halloween, a few runners turned up in costume. 

This 4K run was fun and served as a good test run for us. We ran the part of the marathon route in Central Park.

  2. Look at that goodie bag! Nakakatuwa naman yang “Halloween run” nyo at mukhang di nilalamig ang mga tao dyan hehehe. I wonder how “Mr. Eiffel” was able to run? 🙂
    mr eiffel was strong talaga.

  3. Hi, Bards,

    It was great meeting you. I wrote a blog post about you and being a runner from the Philippines in the NYC Marathon. It can be found here.
