When you decide NOT to run a race, volunteer instead!

I haven't posted in a while because I was holding out for a training update post, but my half marathon training hasn't quite been going as planned.  As a result, I made the difficult decision to NOT run any half marathons this fall and volunteer at the races I had planed to run instead.  This fall and winter I plan to focus on increasing my strength and flexibility and hopefully get closer to the level of fitness I had in 2014 when I ran my last marathon and before I experienced several years of injuries.

So now the plan is to volunteer at the MO' Cowbell expo and on race day.  I think it will be hard being absent from the start line with the other MO' Bassadors and runners, but I am really looking forward to seeing race day from a totally different perspective. Stay tuned for a different kind of race recap after the MO' Cowbell race weekend, which runs October 4th - 6th.  There is still plenty of time to sign up to volunteer, so click here for MO' information.

See you on race day!
