Houston Marathon Expo
Yesterday I was running my easy 4 mile run at Memorial Park when I saw a group of runners go by and I recognized Olympic hopeful Desiree Davila. I had to tell someone and telling my dog, who was with me, just wouldn't cut it so I stopped and called my husband.
I ran on and then, since, we were running on a loop, I saw her again and we smiled at each other. I ran two miles to the one mile that her group ran! I think I saw other elites, too, but she was the only one I can name without a doubt.

The expo was crowded early Friday morning so I can't imagine what it will be like today. At some places, I could hardly walk! I found good deals, though: ASICS GT-2160 shoes for $45 and ASICS shirts for $10.
I'm so excited that the Olympic Trials Marathon take place within walking distance from my home. If you see me and my Weimaraner and maybe my husband, too, come over and say hi! I'll be near Shepherd and Memorial around 9AM.
