I haven't run by myself or with other people since I was in high school several decades ago! Back then I spent a lot of time trying to get out of PE class, but I am really into it now! How times have changed!
In preparation for my race on June 23, I wanted to get some of that race day experience so I went looking and found another big race happening nearby on May 26 and volunteered to help out.
My job will be preparing packages for the runners the day before the race and then recording bib numbers and runner's times as they cross the finish line on race day.
Since I have never attended a race before this should be good experience for me. It helps a charity, I get race experience, it increases community awarness of fitness and health, and I get a souvenir T-shirt, too! Win win win win!
