JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- The 26.2 With Donna race expo opens Friday, but Thursday night organizers were getting ready for the crowds.
Lin Pomerantz is getting her marathon in now. The 26.2 With Donna race expo is sold out. It's her job to get hundreds of vendors, speakers, and samplers all set up and ready to roll.
"This is my favorite part. We go from nothing just a bunch of boxes, and these folks create the Taj Mahal. It's amazing what they create from this," she said.
Jen Lenard is one of the vendors who has been with the race all five years. She loves the spirit.
"Good vibes, good people and a great cause. We've had a lot of breast cancer in our family and I enjoy giving back," she said.
From the little touches, like the timeline that gives the history of 26.2 With Donna since year one, to the silent auction and a bike jersey signed by Dr. McDreamy, Patrick Dempsey, to the inspiration boards that will line the beaches, Lin is getting it all ready for you.
All runners must pick up their race packets at the expo. Registration is still available during expo hours which run from noon to 7pm Friday and from 9 to 6 on Saturday.
