This past Saturday brought GLORIOUS running weather in the Twin Cities and it was the perfect day for Goldy’s Run! I, however, did not participate.
A few months back, my husband mentioned that he really wanted to do this run, but grumbled when he saw the race entry fee. (and who could blame him?) So – I went ahead and signed him up!
Arriving at the race on Saturday morning gave me all of the feelings of excitement that I usually feel when I show up for a race – but along with it, came (selfish) disappointment that I wasn’t running, too!
But when the cheering squad showed up that I recruited and we made an awesome sign to hold up when we cheered Jesse on, I felt only excited again.
My husband finished 62nd overall in 1:11:47 – over 3 minutes faster than his goal time! I was so proud.
Being a spectator at the race made me think I might sign up to volunteer at a race this year!
Do you volunteer at races?
