Gulf Coast Half Marathon 2016 Packet Pickup!

We left around 10:30 AM to head to Louisiana for packet pickup! But's tradition to stop at The Shed for some yummy BBQ for lunch! So that's what we did! And it did not disappoint!

We then made it to Varsity Sports in Mandeville for packet pickup. They usually have some great sales. And they did this time as well! I bought 2 new sports bras that were on sale and a super cute tank!

Packet pickup is always super easy. You get your bib and then your shirt. Usually they have several vendors there but this year there was only one there advertising another race. I did score a bite of king cake though! Yummy!

After packet pickup it was time for SNOBALLS! You can't come to Louisiana and not get a snoball! They make the BEST ones ever! 

I always get the wedding cake flavor! Soo good!!! 

After our snoball fun we headed to the hotel to check in, unpack some, and relax before dinner. Donna and I were rooming together and we also made some coffee! 

Before we knew it it was time to leave for dinner! We met all our other Sole2Soul Sisters at Mellow Mushroom for some pizza!!! 

My blogging friend Jennifer met us there too! It was great seeing her!!! And no...we didn't plan on dressing alike lol! 

Donna and I always order a side caesar salad and we split a small pizza and it's the perfect amount! We did the same this time! So yummy! 

After dinner we headed back to the hotel. But Donna and I made a pit stop first....we stopped at Sonic for some ice cream! I was really taking this fueling thing seriously lol! 

Some of our friends came to our room for a bit and we played a few hands of Phase 10! Then it was bedtime! 

But first I had to reveal my flat Road Runner Girl! We were all wearing these orange shirts in honor of our fellow Sole2Soul Sister Leah who is battling cancer. We were all so blessed to be able to run for her!

Stay tuned for my race recap...
