I'm Puttin On A Race!!!!

Okay, well I'm coordinating it for a professional organization that I belong to. Proceeds (which will be minimal...very minimal...) will go towards our highschool scholarship fund.

I'm sorta excited and sorta nervous. So much could go wrong. But probably won't. I've got a good crew that volunteered to help (including T!) and one very experienced runner/volunteer, Jim! He runs a couple of races a weekend (yes, a couple most weekends) so his experience has been invaluable!

Water - check
Gatorade - check
Bananas and granola bars - check
Registration table - check
People to direct traffic - check
Medals for all sorts of categories - check

Plus check, check, check for all the other misc items I might need.

So, tomorrow at 1000 I will make my debute as a race coordinator.

Very cool.

Wish me luck.

That's really cool. Looking forward to the post race report.

Let me know if you need a checklist. I have a spreadsheet that has a list of things for you to consider if you need it.

Good luck tommorow, Amy.

Jim said...

Why on a weekday? You know that I would have come over to run had it been a Saturday!

Anne said...

Don't leave us in suspense! How'd it go????

Sounds like you lucked out and were spared one of the biggest hassles in race directing: getting a permit to run on public roads.
