A lot of expos' race merchandise areas end up looking like a bargain basement sale, with stuff just thrown everywhere. The official merchandise area was very spacious and organized (by style, gender, race distance, etc) - I am sure this changed later on in the expo though. From shirts, to jackets, to hats, and even magnets and pint glasses, there was something for everyone running this weekend. There was gear for all of the race distances from 5K to the marathon which is always nice to see.
Of course we had to stop by and visit our favorite ladies at Sparkle Athletic - they are always a joy to chat with. We also picked up some goodies from PRO Compression and a few other vendors along the way.
