It’s not an Expo, it’s an Expotique
After today I’ve decided that Nike never does anything small. Nike has an all-or-nothing mentality. But before we get to the Nike Women’s Half Marathon Expotique, let’s chat a bit about Girlie Weekend!! My friends and I came up with the brilliant idea several months ago to all get together and run the Nike Women’s Half Marathon together. Well that weekend is here!! YAY!!
We had an awesome dinner on Friday night and caught up. Then we hit the town on Saturday for the expo and a day of shopping. We walked from Clarendon in Arlington, VA down to the Georgetown Waterfront to get to the Expotique. This was roughly a nice leisurely 2 mile walk.
The Expotique was very well done, but as expected the lines were insane. There were lines for everything. Take a photo… line. Want to try Nuun… line. Want another photo… line. Want to make a sign… line. After awhile I was over it. But not before making signs, taking pictures, and sampling Nuun! If there was anything else to do, I had already lost my patience.
After playing in the expo we headed to the official Nike store which just so happens to be up the street. It’s here where you can find your name on the official NIKE wall.
We then headed into the store and stocked up on some gear. I found a Nike Goddess tank because I’m obsessed with this year’s logo and a fun t-shirt. Turns out the t-shirt I liked the most was men’s….. eh… C’mon I’m a DC local. Could this not be more perfect?
After the expo, we headed to Alexandria for a delicious brunch and to hit the Lilly store for our Coloradan RockyMtnPearls who is deprived of Lilly out west. Then we swung by the Tanger Outlets for some shopping and MORE Walking!!
Dinner was a nice home cooked meal by our lovely hostess. She made homemade turkey meatballs and pasta, which was delicious!!
Tomorrow AM bright and early we’ll be running through the streets of DC! If you couldn’t tell I’m excited and a little nervous. So until then….
What’d you do today? Ever covet the men’s race shirts? Do you have an outlets addiction too? Do you love races when they take place in your city?
