Finish at the 50 5k tomorrow!

So, I know I should be asleep by now but just wanted to post a quick note...

We picked up our race bibs for the Harvard Pilgrim Finish at the 50 5k and Kids Fun Run happening tomorrow! The kids all get race bib #1, which is a nice touch and for us adults, we're in the 3,000 numbers so it should be a lot of fun running with a few thousand of our new friends!

The folks at Patriot Place really know how to take care of their runners and have a whole slew of deals that they offer for pre-race meals. We took them up on the offer of an Orecchiette Pasta with Spinach dish for just showing your race bib at the Twenty8 Restaurant at the Renaissance Hotel by Marriott at Patriot Place. It was SO delicious!

They also had a really neat pre-race expo that started yesterday (Wednesday, July 1) and lasts throughout the race day tomorrow, July 3. There were balloon artists, caricatures, face painting, photo booths, appearances by Slyde the Revolution Soccer mascot, and bounce houses from the Revolution! They have a lot for kids to do. We tried our hands at a bean bag toss from the 5Wits! folks and got these really cool Spy sunglasses which let you see behind you - those may come in handy tomorrow during the race, to see if anyone is trying to pass us! ;)

All in all, we had a great time and it was really easy picking up our race bib, t-shirt and some great food samples from Purity Organic beverages and the great folks at KIND Snacks. We're looking forward to running tomorrow and hopefully getting a personal record!

Even though online registration is closed, if you are still interested in running, you can register on-site!
