TGIF - Day of Volunteering

Well today was a great day to run, except it is a day before we run our 15k race in Tulsa, so what do we do instead....our local club volunteered to go to Tulsa and be responsible for the "chip check" table for the race participants picking up their packets today. Cindy, Julia, and I spent from 10 am to 1 pm doing "chip checks" for runners and had alot of fun. But I'm also tired of standing on my feet for all that time. I got to thinking about it and it's like running the 15k while standing in place. Ok, so maybe I didn't break a sweat, but my ankles are sore and my feet are tired...doesn't that count for something...or am I just looking for sympathy here???

Tomorrow promises to be in the high 30's or low 40's at race time, clear, low humidity and very little wind. Well the race starts in downtown Tulsa and we all know how just a little bit of wind turns a downtown area into windtunnels, so we shall see what comes of the dawn. The race doesn't start until 9:00 am so the temps will climb just a bit from the typical morning lows. So maybe I can brave the cooler temps and run in shorts and a long sleeve shirt, we shall see. I'll take a pair of pants just in case.

Isn't it amazing how the temps are dropping? It was 33 degrees here this morning when I left home heading to the gym. But, it was sunny and smelled like a good ND fall morning!

I know I SHOULD volunteer at races, but I never had. You're a better runner than I, Randy!

Love your goal of becoming a marathon maniac!! I have checked it out. I almost sent my info to them but for some odd reason I didn't. Maybe I will now. What a crazy group.

Love your goal list. How great is that!! You can SOOO do it!
