I'm back from volunteering at Tri for the Cure...holy crap am I tired! I think my legs hurt worse than if I had actually raced! Not to mention I'm going on 3 hours of sleep...had to be there at 4:15 this morning.
I was in the transition area so I spent the first two hours directing people to their rack, marking them with their race numbers (holy permanent marker fumes, batman!), and answering questions. Then I got to hand out water (and cheer myself hoarse) at the start of the run. It was hot, hot, hot. The last racers got on the run course a good four hours after the first wave started (which was almost three hours AFTER I got there!). What a great experience, though. I truly believe that everyone should volunteer for at least one race just to see it from the other side. Plus, it's so rewarding. I had one woman give me a big hug and a kiss on the cheek after the race to say thank you!
Now trying to get motivation up to go to the Y to swim. My legs are shot, but I haven't been in the pool in almost two weeks. And I have a 10 miler planned tomorrow...we'll see how (or if!) that goes!
Eagerly awaiting race reports...
