Life is on its way back to normal around here. After working more than 40 hours last week at the Nike Women Half Marathon packet pick up and then managing a fluids tent on race day (read: I was at the race before 4:30am), I face planted yesterday afternoon. After a short nap yesterday and a good night’s sleep last night, I’m ready to work on getting my life back to its usual level of chaos. Oh, and I might actually want to go for a run since I’m running a 5k and a half marathon this coming weekend. (Yes, I’m am crazy, why do you ask?)
So here’s my question for you:
I want to buy myself a NWHM half zip.
After all the blood (I have scratches I don’t even remember getting!), sweat, and tears (ok, I admit, some of the amazing stories I heard from runners about why they ran this race made me tear up), I feel like I’ve legitimately earned one.
Would you buy yourself a shirt for a race you worked (I was not a volunteer) even if you didn’t run it?
And here’s the winner of the Simply Snackin Giveaway:
Hope everyone had a great weekend. I’ll post a “race report” later this week about what it’s like to work behind the scenes at a major race.
