I was excited for the Historic Half, I knew Colleen and Alanna loved it and it was going to be my first race away with them. Unfortunatly Alanna ended up not being able to go but MCM is great and allowed her to transfer her bib. I texted my friend Chad who lives right in Fredericksburg and he said he would do it as his first half! I tried to get him to do Richmond with me a few years back but he didn't and said he regretted it after.
Colleen and I flew down to BWI and Chad and Piper picked us up to take us to our hotel. I did not realize how far BWI was from where the race was so we ended up renting a car to go back on Sunday.

The next day we got up and headed to the expo. It was small but of course well run, you don't expect anything less from the Marines. I was pretty excited that I got my bib from Sid. Pretty much anyone who runs on the east coast - especially in the DC/Va area knows Sid. He is a veteran who runs marathons with a flag. He has been on my blog before in my Shamrock recap and also RnR Va Beach. We got out packets and wandered the expo for a while.
Once Colleen came and finished we got some more finish photos with super cute Marines and I found some of my BGR ladies I had met along the course and got a photo.
