Des drove us from JFK to check into our hotel then on to the race expo. We got lost a few times on our way to the expo but once we arrived we took our time going through all the booths before picking up my bib, race shirt and awesome goodie bag.
After retrieving the race stuff, we parked back at the hotel and took the subway into the city. We spent the day in the city doing just the bare minimum of touristy things. Lunched at Colicchio & Sons (Tom Colicchio's restaurant from Top Chef),
