Getting Volunteers Is The Hardest Part

Getting Volunteers are the hardest part of putting on a race. It is comparably easy to just do the work yourself, because of all of the work necessary to put on a race, this is not possible. The harder part of trying getting others to help is necessary. It is a proven fact that in any group two or three percent of the people do 100% of the work. As one who has been a race director, I know that before that I had no idea of the amount of work that goes into putting on a race. It is so much more fun to talk to friends before and after running, instead of helping.

My PRs

When I finish a race and someone asks "Was that a PR" I often joke that PR means possible recovery. PR which really stands for personal record is what makes running the most fun. I remember all my PRs well.

I Love Running

I think about running all the time. All of my friends are running friends and all of the best times of my life have been while running. I especially love racing sometimes going to 20 or 25 a year. The best memories I have are all at races.

I always go farther than I planned

I just don't want to quit running and so I keep taking turns away from the way I planned and away from home. Sometimes if I plan a quick 3 mile it might turn into a 10k or even a 10 miler. Its great to explore some new courses this way. Some of my favorite courses have been found this way and anyway it's not good to keep doing the same courses over and over again every day. Sometimes I just hate to quit running.
