Sister K is handling this early morning stuff a lot better then me. I just want to crawl back into my bed and sleep for another four hours.
This was the first photo I took when I got into the city. It is one of many which I will share in the coming days. It was nice and cool and overcast when we arrived. I got to the hotel early and check in wasn't until 3pm, so I stowed my bags and decided to explore!
A few hours later, I decided that I should probably head over to the expo located at the SF Design Center. So I had to learn to use the BART real quick since I didn't have a car. Luckily this was very similar to the public transit system in Chicago so I wasn't completely clueless.
A few stops later and a mile walk through an unsavory part of town and I was there. I really hate that walk to the expo by the way. Don't know why it is located in such a strange part of town.
I was greeted by this long line of people outside the expo. They were suppose to open at noon but it was already 1pm and the line was moving at a crawl.
Luckily the Nesquik truck was there to hand out samples. I must have stood in line for 20 minutes before the line started moving.
Many satisfied people! Milk it does a body good! Other people's body...not mine.
Then they high "tailed" it out of there...
...and I was almost at the front of the line!
Inside at last!
Best.race.shirt.EVER! It is understated and gender specific sized. I love it! I packed two other outfits but might wear this with come capris instead.
Gear check bag!
The quilt made with all the previous SF Marathon race shirts.
I took this photo because I thought about buying a hat (made by Headsweats) but decided against the idea for some reason. Nike Frees were also on sale for $80 but not the color that I had wanted.
Can't wait to add this to my collection.

After walking around the expo for about an hour, I was pretty tired so I decided to head out in search of some lunch. That's it for now, I have to head out for the day but come back for more SF fun!
