1) I would not count on it. Track Shack may have it at the expo, but it may also disappear since it is not a usually brisk seller.

2) A baggie of powder should not be an issue since it is not a liquids, aerosol or gel. From experience, double bag it. Be prepared to discuss with the agents if they get curious.

Does anyone know the cab fare from Riverside to Saratoga Springs? I need to pick up my 5k bib after I get there and it'll be about 12:00 at night so I don't feel like waiting on a bus and I think the boat stops around 11...

And anyone who's there, what's the wait like for test track? still have the single rider line?

I carried on a huge container of coffee cronies before , no trouble, and I was flying international.

All I was saying was that even though it fits the rules, I have had much less threatening things looked at. I think the guy behind the x-ray machine gets board. Don't be surprised if a baggie of powder gets looked at.

I would expect $10 for the fare.

According to my app.... Test Track was 45 minutes yesterday

1. I have seen them at expos before at one of the "stores" that sell lots of stuff. But if you have time this week, try GNC locally, they might have some. Now that I look at my bottle, it was bought at road runner sports so I think maybe DH got it at a store instead of an expo.

2. When I travel with my drink mix I put it in a Rubbermaid container instead of a ziploc. I like the screw-top "disposable" ones for soup they sell at the grocery store. No worries about puncture or spillage then!

One more sleep for us. I had a fitful sleep last night and woke up at 4 am. Did get back to sleep. Guess it was a good trainer for our wee hours departure tomorrow.

Once again I just want to thank everyone for the support, encouragement, and advice, with a special thank you to Coach Charles for being all our long-distance coach. I am going to do this, my first Half Marathon -- first race over 5k, for that matter -- and it is due in part to all of you.

I don't think our party's schedule will accommodate any of the meets, but I do hope to be able to run into some of you and say thanks in person.

Let's talk about the expo

Just going over the expo pages in the final race instructions.

So first we hit the HP Field House for Packet Pick-up (waiver needed) and then go to the Jostens Center for Race Shirt & gEAR bag pick-up?

I just want to make sure I do it in the correct order!

I printed off the expo floorplan and highlighted the exhibitors I want to hit - mostly Disney merchandise for shirts and marathon stuff, Lasting Commemoratives for the art card, and Fond Memories for the shadowbox.

I will probably check out New Balance to see if they have anything and maybe Marine Corps Marathon to see if they can convince me to run that instead of Pittsburgh in May. :P I seriously don't think I am crazy enough to do both...

Don't think of it that way! You're going to have such a great time. Honestly, I was so bummed when the race ended last year...it was so much fun.

HP Field House then Jostens Center was the order last year. There will be CMs directing you where to go...just follow the crowd. ETA: You'll know if you went in the wrong order because they won't give you your shirt/bag without seeing your bib first.

I've never run MCM but I hear it's a FANTASTIC race.

It is actually hard to go the wrong way. My DW can't keep up with me as I skip up the hill from the bus area to the HP Field House. So she heads to Josten's and has to say "I Know" a few times when volunteers are telling her she needs to go the HP first.

Oh good, so I'm not the only one that gleefully skips to the expo then!

Another Expo question. If I'm also picking up the Chear Packages for my husband and daughters, where do I g for that? And I have the waivers and authorization forms all figured out. So Ive done that.

Also -- if we signed up for Race Retreat -- is that also a separate line?

Thanks again...newbie here!
