2016 & 2017 Volunteer at Bruises & Bandages Run!
This past Saturday, both my teammates and the new team riders set out in the wee hours of the morning to do some volunteering. We arrived at a cold, dark park in Georgetown and immediately got into setting up the necessary stations for the trail race.
Once the race got going we were all chatting both 2016 and 2017. It was great to meet the team and be reminded of where I was last year. They were so excited to meet each other just like I was and now being where 2015 is makes the ride all the more real.
The best was seeing the runners coming in from a long cold run. After working so hard, a couple of my 2016 friends decided to make them artistic pancakes. They were a hit! What this volunteering event taught me was enjoy the time I have left with my team before the ride and embrace the new team to help them on their journey.
