Erika from MCM Mama Runs, Marcia from Marcia's Healthy Slice and Patty from No-Guilt Life.This week's topic is Expos.
I've already written before about Expos and how I feel about them. Basically I like them and think of you go in with a plan, you can get a lot of good deals.
This past weekend I ran the Disneyland Star Wars weekend and definitely spent some time at the expo! I had to go to the Expo twice.
The first time I went, it was super quick. Basically I parked my car, ran to the Expo, got my bibs and shirts and ran into official merchandise right before it closed.
I ended up buying:
- A Star Wars race magnet for my office
- 3 sweat bands (2 rebel challenge and a weekend one)
- A black/red coast to coast shirt
- A Princess Leia half shirt
I definitely rushed through and didn't look fully at all of the merchandise. I even bought a size medium coast to coast shirt! I definitely wouldn't recommend doing that but for this race, I didn't have a choice.
I went back the next day to buy the Ariel New Balance shoes, get KT taped on my ankle (which I had never done before and it worked well), and shopped more in merchandise. They didn't have the wine glass and in person I didn't like the Christmas ornament so I passed.
We got the rebel alliance drink which was delicious. I love the rundisney cups!
After all of that, we were basically done and went to drop our stuff off at the car and headed to grab lunch in the park.
Overall, I thought the Star Wars half marathon weekend expo had a lot to offer. I went at closing the first day and opening the next day and it was not too crowded so if you can do either of those, I definitely recommend that.
What do you think of Expos?
