Last Thursday I headed to MI for a couple exciting reasons. I had chosen a wedding dress last time I was there, but had to go back to get initial measurements, so the designer could custom make it for me 🙂
The dress has been ordered and it’s starting to feel so real now!!!
The second reason I chose to go that particular weekend is because my mom was driving out to Wisconsin to cheer my brother on in the Racine 70.3 Ironman. I had never been to one of my brother’s races and my mom and I both decided to volunteer while we were there.
It was a long exhausting day, but so much fun to talk to everyone and be involved in all of the pre-race excitement!
Then I had to report to my post! I would be at the “run out” offering sunscreen to all the racers. It was a perfect spot to see my brother come out for the run and snap a quick pic as he headed off on the 13.1 mile run.
My mom was working the finish line too and she got to give my brother his medal and we both got a hug right at the finish – pretty cool huh? Matt did awesome and this was just a stepping stone to his full ironman in November.
My mom and I hit the road after the race and headed back to MI. The next couple days were spend biking, running, eating, and seeing movies! Always so much fun with my momma! Oh – and we went stand up paddle-boarding! So fun!!
I am so motivated by everyone at the race this weekend and I absolutely loved volunteering and being a part of it. Now, I have some exciting news to be revealed later…:)
Have you ever volunteered or crewed a race? Ever done/want to do an ironman (full or half)??
