Nike Women's Marathon Entry/2013 Review

Registered for the Nike Women's Half Marathon 2014!  Crossing my fingers that I get in again.  Last year's run changed my lifestyle.  I went from someone who never runs to someone who runs at least 3-4 times a week.  Here's some highlights from last year's run:

This is us on our Southwest flight with our cool new kicks.  Every year Nike comes out with limited edition shoes in a Tiffany's-like color.  They allow people who are entered in the race a guarantee pair, if they wish to purchase.  They send an e-mail with a link for you to reserve a pair using your confirmation number, and then you can pick them up at Niketown in SF.  I was lucky enough to be able to snag some online, so got to wear ours to the airport:

I recommend showing up as early as you can for the Expotique.  We showed up on Saturday and it was very crowded.  If we get in again, I plan to at least take Friday off to spend more time at the Expotique.  They have all kinds of freebies like getting your hair styled for free by Paul Mitchell, Luna Bars, Nike laces, towels, water bottles, etc.  You could spend a whole day there!  Plus they have cool photo-ops:

We were lucky enough to score VIP bands, courtesy of a friend who worked for Nike.  We showed up at 5:30am, the race started at 6:30am.  Be prepared to wait if you are in a slower paced corral.

Here we go!

Miles 4-9 are extremely hilly, so hill train, ladies!
