Count down to the GAR!

In about 12 hours, I'll be at the start line for the Great Aloha Run.  I'm finally getting the nervous/happy/excited butterflies in my stomach so that's a good sign, considered I wasn't really feeling the race this Friday.

I just hope the weather holds out because it's been raining off and on for the last several days.

Yesterday was the GAR health and fitness expo and I can't remember if it's always been this big or if I just didn't pay attention the last time I was there but I really liked it!


I got my blood pressure tested - score of "normal".  I got my reaction time tested - score of excellent!

I got my body fat analyzed and according to this booth, I'm at 27%... not  31% like my trainer has been telling me.  However, the test at the GAR expo was different than the one my trainer uses.

And the most exciting part was waiting in line...

... to meet Chad Owens!  Might not be a familiar name to most of my blog readers but he was an awesome UH football player and one of the few players I followed.  He is a professional American, Canadian, and Arena football player and was drafted into the NFL back in '05.  And he's dreamy!!

Total randomness at the expo... baby goats and llamas.  They were so cute!

And cupcakes... why is this at a health and fitness expo?!

All the free loot Anthony and I brought home: packs of beef jerky, energy drinks, energy and protein bars, massage lotion, post cards, pill cases, measuring spoons, and Nerds.  
I didn't even know Nerds were still made.

Wish me luck and cross your fingers for me... I need it!

The expo looked like fun. I've always wanted to get my body fat reading and that's cool they did it there. Maybe the cupcakes were "healthy"? Lol.

Good luck on your run! Have fun.
