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.
