On Saturday, the kiddos and I took the Max train to the Oregon Convention Center, where the Portland Rock’n’Roll Expo was held. It’s nice to take the Max train since the Convention Center is right on the Max train line. It’s nice and easy for me since we live close to the Max and I don’t have to worry about finding parking and whatnot. The kiddos enjoy taking the train too.The Portland Rock’n’Roll Expo was decent sized, not huge but still had many big vendors. Packet/Bib pickup was easy. Here’s a pic of the shirt and my bib:
I thought the mirrors in the Brooks Merchandise area were amusing. They had sayings on them like the one below.
There also was a Brooks photo booth that was fun. You could pick out the signs to hold.
After the Brooks Merchandise area was the rest of the vendors. Here was the entrance to them.Here’s a fun pic we did at the Toyota booth.
The only thing I bought was nuun. I love the fruit punch and watermelon flavors. On Sunday was the race. Here’s my finisher’s medal. Race recap coming soon. How did your weekend go? Hope you have a great week ahead!
