One of my least favourite things to do in life is wait in line, whether it be at a theme park, for a club and certainly not when I'm trying to pick up my race packet at the Expo for the L.A. Marathon.
Proof that nobody walks in L.A.
- we all run marathons (at least one day a year)
Queueing to get into the L.A. Marathon Expo 2014
I for one have never experienced this problem in the past and no one could provide a valid explanation for why it was happening.
Still waiting in line now and getting bored
Finding my name on the wall of L.A. Marathon runners
In the afternoon I actually headed to the doctor's to check out my ankle and to do a quick jog to make sure that I'd still be able to run the marathon on Sunday. I'm pleased to say, aside from 'some' discomfort, I managed the 3.2 miles at a reasonable pace, now just to run that and another 23 miles on race day.
I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank all my friends, family and supporters for their donations to AIDS Project L.A. who I'm running the marathon for, their generosity will keep me motivated this weekend for sure.
Now for a soak in a nice epsom salt bath to help my aching muscles methinks...
