After 3 years of running races, I have yet to volunteer at one. That is about to change.
Exactly 1 week to the day after I run the Chicago Marathon, I will be volunteering at the Detroit Marathon. Not only that, but my job is the coolest. I get to stand at the finish line handing out finishers medals! I am really excited to do this. Not only will I be seeing the winner cross the finish line, but I get to congratulate all those that put in the hard work, dedication and training it takes to run 26.2 miles. I have a feeling it will be a very emotional experience.
