If you can't join them, help them

Today instead of running in a 5 mile race I volunteered and helped out. It was a bit chaotic as this was the first time they were putting this race together so I noticed a few bumps but overall it rocked. I was basically keeping people on the right side of the cones on the out and back and keeping the public out of the course way. It was fun to cheer the ladies on, and many of them would shout thanks for volunteering - how awesome is that. 

I saw a bunch of friendly faces and I really hope I made a small difference in at least one ladies run and gave her some encouragement. 

So next time you are feeling bummed b/c you can't run due to an injury - go volunteer and cheer the runners on !!!
