We partook in just about everything.....
My camera had issues that day :(
the Nissan Booth
Ready or not, here I come!!
One of the goodies inside our Packet...
And of course.... I bought the Jacket!!!
We walked around all morning, went and grabbed lunch, then it was time to go to work....
Bib distribution was awesome!!! We had low numbers. Me personally, 1100-1600, average qualifying time for these people were 2:45! I was blown away!!! I met people from all around the world. From Spain, Argentina, Sweden to Japan. It was amazing!!! Our job was to make sure we gave each person the correct bib and more importantly to welcome them to the city of Boston. Whenever possible, I would ask them about their trip and about their time in Boston. All were excited to be there especially those that were there for the first time. Almost everyone took pictures while picking up their packets. I must be in over a thousand people's Facebook :)
My three boxes
CMS hard at work....
Even got a visit from my good, friend Bill (Impossible is Nothing)
Bill always great to see you!!!!!
We worked from noon to about 6:30.... it was a long day. Don't forget I was there since 9am. I was beat. While most people drove into Boston, I on the other hand parked in Newton and took The T in. That was only because it only cost me $9 between parking and The T.... otherwise parking in Boston would have cost me $40!!... Money I saved and used in the expo :)
As tired as I was, I had a blast that day. The excitement of the marathon was in the air. You could feel it!
I remember the ride back to Newton on the T, Dreaming about race day. I was ready....
