My mom and I spent the Saturday before the race at the expo. She's only been to one other expo and is still not used to them. She wanted to buy shirts, shoes, capris - and I had to tell her you don't buy those items at the expo! You buy race souvenirs and that's it.
We both spent entirely too much money on race stuff. I picked up a nice men's jacket (no women's available) for half off at $60. The race packet included a shirt, backpack and a poster. Not bad for a $100 entry (early entry at that).
