The Iron Horse Half-Marathon is coming up in just a little over 2 weeks! I know those of us that are running are really ramping up, but I wanted to remind you guys that aren’t running that you can be involved too!
The IHHM holds a very special place in my heart. We had our first LexRunLadies group run the day before the IHHM last year. I ran the first 5 miles of last year’s race with Kelly, who I had just met the day before. It is a beautiful course and a fun race. I’d love to have a huge LRL group picture!
We had a LexRunLadies water station at RunTheBluegrass and I think it would be awesome to have enough volunteers to do the same at the IHHM. Nothing will light your running fire like being a volunteer or a cheerleader! You can read about Erin’s volunteering experience last year here.
And the IHHM needs you! Based on the list that I received from the Volunteer Coordinator, they need about 150 volunteers to make the race run smoothly. Can you help?
Here’s what to do:
1. Leave a comment here (or on the Facebook post that will correspond to it) indicating that you want to volunteer with LRL. Please note if you want to help with a water station or in another fashion. (I already have Lydia, Judy, Jitana, Laura, and Lori on my list, so you don’t have to tell me that you want to help, but you still need to do #2!)
2. Email Louise Hensley (Louise1956@insightbb.com) and let her know that you want to volunteer. Again, indicate that you either want to volunteer at the LRL water station or in another area.
3. Be on the lookout for correspondence from me and/or Louise!
So, what are you doing October 14th? Come on out!
