Well, there's a Flying Pig team where I tried to organize stuff this past May, but there wasn't a lot of participation - maybe this year will be better. :)
I haven't really thought about next year yet (heck, I didn't even manage to do the Warrior Dash this past weekend as intended, life has just gotten too crazy since I left my job and started STNA training the day after the Pig). I definitely intend to be involved as a volunteer if nothing else. I don't think I'll do a full again, but the half is a distinct possibility.
I've also been considering starting something...in my head it's called "Tail Gators" and it'd be a group to specifically stick around and cheer for the very last folks who cross the finish line of the full. There were only about 12 people that came in after my daughter and I, and by the time we got there they'd taken all the food down, and everybody except our family was pretty well gone. We got our medals, but that's it. It was pretty depressing for having accomplished something so amazing. And I personally think the folks that come in last are generally the REAL warriors, who've overcome so much just to finish. I think there should be some kind of organized cheering section (heck, I'd like to see it spread to marathons all over the country), I just don't really know how to pull it off. :)
