Expo: This expo is pretty darn extensive. Packet pick up was pretty straight forward, they had the 3 way and 4 way challenge bibs set apart so no need to get in 3 separate lines. I still did since I was getting my running partner (I guess I can still call her that) and my kids and dh's bibs for the 5k.
The Flying Pig Marathon is sponsored by Procter and Gamble which means: tons of free samples!!! woot! woot! They have a very well organized line that went fast and I now have a nice supply of Olay Regenerist lotion, Secret, Gain, Tampax, and a ton of other stuff which my dh squirreled away before I take a picture of the loot pile. (We had 4 participant bags so we took handfuls of stuff).
The normal venders were there and I did score a new sweaty band for my birthday and some blister powder (since I got a hot spot on foot on my last run before the races-I was paranoid). I also bought a new pair of running/athletic sunglasses since I hate squinting while running in the summer. We checked out I have to say it's nice having your birthday always around the same time as the Pig-I just drag my dh with me to the expo and birthday shop! ;-)
