26.2 with Donna Expo

Love. Hope. Strength. Those are the words that sum up my runDonna experience! The 26.2 with Donna Half Marathon has always been on my radar and I'm so glad this was my year to run it!
The weekend of runDonna I created my own little race challenge! On Friday, I ran the runDisney Royal Family 5K and Saturday I ran the runDisney Enchanted 10K. Then I drove from Orlando to Jacksonville since Sunday was devoted to runDonna!

When I arrived at the 26.2 with Donna expo, I was surprised by the size of it! It was held at the Prime Osborn Convention Center....think BIG! There were so many vendors and packet pick up was nicely organized.
At the expo, I ran into my fellow runDonna ambassadors! It was nice to see so many familiar faces! Marcia, the Social Media Butterfly for runDonna, was the "hostest with the mostest!" She had goodie bags for each of the ambassadors. Such an unexpected, but much appreciated surprise!

My friend Liz was going to be running Donna as her first half marathon. This was her first race expo, so it was fun to walk around and take it all in with her. We hit lots of different booths.
I picked up new 13.1 and 26.2 stickers for my car. My old stickers didn't match and now my new ones do! I also found these beauties....say hello to the latest Mizuno Wave Rider 17s! I was drooling over these shoes!

The 26.2 with Donna expo was great! I enjoyed the different vendors and the runDonna vibe was electric. For me, it was a great way to kick off the runDonna weekend! My race recap is coming soon. Stayed tuned!
