Innovating the Expo Experience: The 2017 Expotique!

Welcome to a brand new concept in Event Packet Pick Up. We have partnered with Vue Columbus in the Brewery District to create the first ever "Expotique". 

The idea is a hip and convenient way to pick up your event shirt (just wait until you see (and FEEL) this year's shirt), custom bib, Official Event Guide, interact with fellow participants, have a drink at the bar, enjoy some music and experience some great shopping.  Our goal was to change the game and Vue Columbus, a modern and urban event space with a creative design, is a perfect partner. 
Better Training by Papa John's
"Better Training, Better Fuel"   
Hydration for runners seems so simple.  When I'm thirsty I'll drink, right?  Not always.  Many times by the time you are thirsty, you are already dehydrated.  This is especially true in training in the winter.  It seems like we are not sweating, but we are.  The air is much drier in winter, both inside and out, so we can easily lose track of how much we sweat.  One of the best tips I've ever received is to set a watch for every 10-15 minutes and when it goes off, take a sip.  That means you may have to carry your hydration with you, but it is well worth it to finish your run strong!  We have an entire blog entry on how to determine your own personal hydration requirements here. 

Happy Training!
- Coach Aimee
