I signed up to work the SF One Day again this year and was assigned the same hours: 6:45 a.m. until noon. I got to check people in, give them their bibs, shirts and goody bags and then set up the table for the one and only aid station on the 1.06 mile course. Rick was there and he was instructed on how to be the parking lot police this year. He finally came back when the race was about to start. He helped out a little bit with the aid station, but mostly he stood around and yacked it up with other friends that came to support runners. However, he was planning on staying until midnight. Perhaps after I left he worked a bit more. ;)
Me and RickFor those of you that don't know, this run is on a 1.06 mile course at Crissy Field in San Francisco. Runners run (or jog, walk, skip, etc.) this course for 12 or 24 hours straight. Families bring chairs, coolers, tents, and supplies galore for the runners. It's quite the spectacle. Then everybody watches these silly people run around and around and around. Not every runner brings their own crew though, so there's still the need for an aid station with lots of goodies. A very nice runner told Sarah and I that "our" aid station was the best on the course. Oh, we were so touched. LOL
Right as my shift was ending, a girl walked up and asked if I was Jo Lynn. It was Rene from Run Rene Run.... I was so happy she showed up. She said she might but time was running out. She was so nice to talk to. She had swam from Alcatraz earlier and was on a run when she came by. We talked about getting together for a trail run or even a bike ride in the near future. I hope we follow through with it.
Victoria came by with TWO boxes full of homemade mini cupcakes. They were pumpkin with maple frosting. YUMMY!
