It’s March 9th – normally by now I’d have at least 80% of my races for the year booked in, or at the very least know exactly what races I plan to run and my goal for each. This year is different – I only have one 10k race in April, and that’s only in my calendar as I am a clinic instructor for the group – the rest of my year is wide open, and I plan to keep it that way.
If you follow me on Instagram, you might know that I was volunteering at a local 10K race this past weekend. Since I started running 3 years ago, I have taken part in 9 races, and every single time I passed a volunteer I thanked them. Races wouldn’t be able to go ahead without the many awesome people who volunteer their time. I’ve wanted to volunteer at a race for quite some time now, but there was always one reason or another that stopped me from being able to help out. But after the Walt Disney marathon I made an effort to find a local race that I would help out at. I scheduled it into my calendar to keep the whole weekend free so I could be at the expo on Saturday, and race day (Sunday). I was super excited.
