So, since I moved back to the beautiful Hudson Valley with my husband, daughter and two dogs I have been trying to get back into my hometown community. I started out by going for "nap runs" around the neighborhood, going to the park and rail trail with my family and I signed up to compete in a handful of races this spring... Which also helped me to hold myself to my own fitness goals.
The one thing I never could seem to get around to was volunteering. Well, this weekend I did it! I finally made it out to an event (with my husband) to volunteer. It was a fantastic experience. We went to the HIITs Triathlon up at Hunter. It was a beautiful scenic drive and race course. We even got a little hike in our selves!
We were happily stationed at the finish line where we clapped and cheered until our voices were nearly gone and our hands/wrists wanted nothing more than epsom salt. I also had the distinguished job of giving out participation metals and stripping timing chips. That may sound easy but you try to get a finisher to hold still long enough to do both without jogging past you, collapsing or threatening to hurl... Then we'll talk ;-)
Overall it was a fantastic experience and I can't wait to get out there again!
