blog slacker...

borrowed the title from another blog.

that's me, a real slacker.

have written a couple of posts but never posted them. but i did stay at a holiday inn express last weekend. no, didn't do that either. i did volunteer at a race though. really i did. don't have proof, you're just going to have to believe me on that one.

helped out a bit at autumn leaves 50k/50mile/10k. really though this race is pretty easy to help at. it is only 15 minutes from where i live so i have no excuse to either run or help out here.

it is easy for the volunteers here. i would say a large portion of the runners don't even use the aid stations. i always park my truck a by the pioneer house a few hundred meters from the start and use my tailgate as an aid station. in the past i have filled 10 bottles and just grab a new one on each lap. but this year i had a few duties instead of running.

the best part is i got to pace a friend the last 10 miles of his 50 mile run. then i helped clean up.

Autumn Leaves looks like a fabulous run ... Kudos to you for helping out at an aide station AND later pacing for a friend. :)
