went to the metropolitan pavilion this afternoon to pick up my bib and shirt for the nyc half marathon on sunday. in the "it's a small world" category, got the bib from my friend julie, who was a volunteer at the expo. she pointed out that the bib # on my registration card had been changed -- that was a first!
apparently, i wasn't the only runner who came in with one number and left with another. the problem was quickly resolved at the help desk - and a printout of a new registration slip/number was done right there. i just took the new one back to julie and picked up the correct bib. luckily, the new # wasn't too far removed for the original - and i was still in the 4th corral, first wave :D
hopefully the frigid weather that suddenly returned and enveloped the city today will leave by sunday - and we can run this one in shorts :D
