After crossing through the finishing chute, we were pleasantly surprised at what was waiting for us. But let me back up first. At packet pickup the day before, there were no packets. All we picked up were bibs and tshirts. No swag. No bag. No nothing. We were a little bummed. Now fast forward to the end of the race. We crossed through the finish line, received a bag with a banana, bagel, and chewy bar in it, then we continued on around the bend to a whole EXPO! There were lots of vendors lining the parking lot giving away tons of freebies. So even though we didn't get a swag bag the day before, we sure got one then. There was also a band playing, which added a fun atmosphere. It was fantastic!

The next race on the calendar is the Inaugural Martinsville Mustangs 5K this Friday!
