OP 50

Headed out this morning to volunteer at the Old Pueblo 50 mile endurance run.  This, my first brush with any run of this sort, I’m hoping it will be a learning experience and that I get to meet more people, fill up plenty of water bottles and generally help out.

I’m not sure what to wear; jeans, t-shirt and hiking boots so far.  Supposed to rain so I’ll have a long-sleeve shirt, light windbreaker and slightly heavier jacket with hood.  Small beanie as well, gloves, sun-glasses.

My 2 gal thermos is full of coconut water and I have some plastic cups to serve.  I have salted cashew pieces, apples, 2 bananas, 2 cliff bars and my own trail mix.   Not sure how much of that is for me or others.

Talking to others, it seems a good volunteer will anticipate needs, change/re-tie shoes, fill water bottles and encourage.   I can do this.
