Be A Volunteer

Yesterday I was looking for a half Ironman for 2012 and thinking about what I needed to do to start training for one.  I have said in other posts how cool it would be to do one.  While I was looking, I remembered one of my friends said she was thinking about doing the Branson Half Ironman.  So as of right now, Branson Sept 2012 is on my radar.  I went to the web page and was looking around and saw they were still needing volunteers for this year.  So I signed up!
I will be working the Registration Expo the day before, and then Jenn and I will be at the finish line handing out medals the day of the race.  I am very excited!  We get a chance to help out with something GREAT, and we get to learn more about an Ironman. 

I am also excited because my friend, Abby, did sign up for the Ironman last night and Jenn and I will be there front and center cheering her on. We will be able to give her the medal she worked hard to earn.  If you are in the Springfield/Branson area, please volunteer! It will be a lot of fun!

So cool, Chris! I am volunteering for the first time myself on Labor Day at the Boulder Marathon. I'm hoping to be handing out finishers' medals--should be awesome.

I'm just catching up on blogs myself after being sick, saw your post about your lay-off. Chris K. told me it takes two weeks to lose your fitness, so don't worry, just do what you said and concentrate on getting healthy. I hope you're feeling better!

You will LOVE volunteering and I think it will be a great way to be inspired and to get an idea of what to expect for next year. How fun!!!
