This past weekend was one of my “give back events.” What the Austin Marathon means to me is volunteering. I volunteer every year and i’ve never run the event. I love being involved on the volunteering side, just like for Decker Half Marathon.
The slogan may have been eat, run, sleep, repeat. But this weekend was volunteer, volunteer, volunteer. I went downtown on Friday and stayed until late Saturday. I had a great time and loved it, but man, not used to standing so much. I felt like i’d run a marathon after the first 2 days of standing for 12 hour days.
This was the first year I’ve done packet pick-up which was incredibly fun and fast paced (so much so, that I never even got to look at the expo, which I heard was awesome). Plus I was a team lead, which was super cool, thanks Megan! (here she is assigning our first crew).
My job for the weekend
I was more than exhausted after the weekend, but well worth it! Now on to Waco for work for most of the week!
