This week I found my way in to the secret undisclosed location where we stuff all of the 25,000+ goody bags for this year’s LA Marathon. In charge of the operation were longtime LA Marathon workhorses Leon and Gerald, who both always show up with a smile and a great attitude. Where would we be without these guys? They had a crew going putting the bags together. Remember, this bag does double duty: it serves as your goody bag and then again as your gear check bag for race day. And when you’re all done with it, you’ll have the option to recycle the bag down in our Finish Line Festival. While no one was looking I managed to snap a few shots of the process and contents. Note that every runner gets their own custom Don Francisco’s Coffee as well as a bag of Emerald Nuts and a Salon Pas topical analgesic sample. And a lot more! See for yourself at the Expo when you pick up your bag.
