One Soggy Day

One of the things I love about my life in Maine is the races. I have never been an athlete. I wasn't an active kid when I was young. But when I moved to Maine, I became interested in races. I have been running races for more than a year now and I love it. I run outdoors for my training regardless of the season.

Last Sunday I left the house very early to go to Portland. I volunteered for the Maine Marathon and was assigned at the Food Tent. It was a soggy Sunday morning.

This is my second time to volunteer in a running event. I volunteered because I can't run any of the races because they were Relay, Full and Half Marathon races. I am only a 5K runner.
That day I sliced hundred of oranges...
and helped set up the food on the tables. I worked for 3 hours from 6AM to 9AM. It was such a wonderful event despite the rain.

I'm planning to do it again next year... if I am not running. WINK***
