last year i did my volunteer requirment at the scotland run packet pick-up. this time around i ran the scotland run (last weekend) and volunteered, yesterday, at the pack pick-up for the city parks foundation 4 miler this weekend. like last year, i was assigned to hand out bibs during the first afternoon shift. despite the relatively quiet time - this wasn't a particulary prime time for runners to come in and collect their race stuff - i managed to see a pair of friends, steve and susan!
not sure if it'll become a trend, but having done course marshall duty and packet pick-ups, volunteering at the nyrr offices has the edge :D
with two races done this year, and the volunteer requirment fulfilled, only 7 more races (including the 2011 nyc marathon) to go for 2012 guaranteed entry :D
