Have you been to the London Marathon Expo yet? I have – it’s fantastic. You don’t have to wait in a long line for your race number as there are plenty of stalls to help you get sorted out and the system works really well.
Once inside there are several great stalls to visit. Head to see the team at Lucozade to get your pace bracelets so you know what time you should be hitting all of the milestones on race day, and go to any number of energy gel bars to buy all of your -sachets for the big day at a cheaper rate – I was surprised too! I also gave into Adidas a purchased the full London 2013 technical kit, in yellow. Okay, so I probably won’t stand out from the crowd at the marathon as everyone else seemed to be buying it too but I will have the kit as a lifetime souvenir – that’s how I’ve justified it anyway.
