Behind the Scenes

by altardy on June 24, 2009

Two pictures here from the Monson, Ma. half marathon & 5k show two ends of the race organizing spectrum. The picture on the right shows three people that have shown up on race day, run, had some energy replenishing food and drink and are now sharing stories of the race. On the left, two of the people that did all the real work (usually an entire year of planning and working their butts off) so people like the ones on the right, and I am one of them, can enjoy the day. I always thank organizers and other volunteers including the ones on the roads directing traffic as I run by for their help and efforts. Note: the people on the left were still smiling even when the camera was not on them.
