Short edition, as in, just a quick post to summarize the trip – I will post more tomorrow when I’m more lucid 🙂 Six hours of sleep over a span of three days has me exhausted!
Overall, I’m glad I went, and had a blast (absolute blast!!) volunteering. Everyone I met was just as excited as I was about the race and was so happy to be there volunteering. It was also a different experience witnessing the race from the sidelines/a volunteers perspective, and to also get a chance to see the lead men and women come blowing through on the bike! Just wow. The run aid station later that evening was also so much fun, I got lots of compliments on the pirate costume I wore (the aid station theme was ‘Pirates’), and seeing the 14-16 hour finishers come through the aid station was such an inspiration, everyone looked so focused and ready to finish.
I have so much more to elaborate on, and I did take some pictures as well 🙂 However to finish up my summary of the weekend, I registered this morning and will be there November 17, 2013 racing Ironman Arizona!!!! I can’t wait to see how I feel tomorrow when it really sinks in and I have caught up on my sleep 😉
