Chapter 2 page 469–St. Louis RnR expo

Let me just say that I don’t have the photos from the other gals yet and they took WAY better pix than I so . . .  I’ll share those that I have and add the others in as I get them (might be several weeks – hee hee). 

Apparently not all RnR race expos are the same.  St. Louis was about 1/4 the size of Chicago’s – bummer!  Oh well, itt was still WAY better than the Columbus expo!!!!

Here are a few pix from our drive to St. Louis and at the expo (enjoy!):

Stopped for lunch at a Cheeseburger in Paradise (my inaugural visit)


L:  Outside of the restaurant; R:  The arch as we drove into STL

L:  Crossing the Mississippi River; R: “L” saying “Horray we made it to the expo” as indicated by the RnR logo sign above her hands.


L:  The Convention Center expo sign; R:  me getting giddy about which way to go for the expo and “C” taking a more conservative approach to pointing things out


L:  America’s Got Talent auditions were held in the same location on Saturday so the room was already set up (glad we missed all those crowds and neurotic parents); R:  “L” pointing to the restroom sign – gotta go!


L: moi playing the air guitar next to the RnR entrance; R:  the entrance sign


L:  “C” and I posing next to the banner like the chick on the banner; R:  one of MANY floor stickers (they were huge) showing support to the runners


L & R:  2 more examples of the supportive floor stickers – they were pretty cool looking!


L:  “C” and I posing next to a banner; R:  “THE GANG” (L to R):  MOA, moi, “C”, “L”, Jenn


Yurbuds booth – “I love Yurbuds!!!!” (same gal who was at the Chicago RnR expo – she remebered me and my blog – woot!



  1. You can never have too much air guitar. I'm still gobsmacked that you did two halves in two weeks ... just too amazing for words.

  2. very cool the yurbuds girl remembered you! I Loved your comment on my last post, you broke down the positives and negs perfectly!!!

  3. Fun Expo! I have yet to go to a race expo, can you believe it? I have never run a really big race with one. I hope to soon!

  4. Cheeseburger in Paradise... sounds yummy. How was it? I have never been!

    I love that you got pictures of the details of the expo because I totally didn't think to!

  5. What a cool looking run. The RNR series is so great. I did San Diego & Virginia Beach. They put on great races.

    Get Up & Go

  6. You ladies totally ROCK!
    I am passing on the Versatile Blogger Award to you. I will be posting it on my blog later today!

  7. My gosh, you ladies sure know how to have fun! Race expos are awesome. Some are better than others, of course, but I like the variety.
