Rock Tahoe Half Marathon: The Expo...

We are gleeful volunteers for the 2nd Annual Rock Tahoe Half Marathon. We joined the team last year, not knowing what to really expect, and returned this year because we knew exactly what to expect... an Epic time with some amazing individuals.

We arrived at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at 8 AM for a ten hour day of helping out at the Expo. This pre-race event showcases great things for runners and people who hang around with runners (us).
We had a variety of tasks, one of which was preparing the 2,000+ finisher medals for awarding tomorrow.
Before leaving, I was interviewed by Tahoe Production House about volunteering and why I liked it so much. I know I didn't explain it as well as I would have liked. I think the main reason we volunteer are the people- the exceptional team that organizes it, the other volunteers that help make it happen, and the infectiously enthusiastic racers that come here to delight in all our amazing town has to offer. What a combination of AWESOME.
So at 7:30 AM tomorrow we'll be back at the Hard Rock in our cool Crew shirts to work the actual race. We'll get caught up in the excitement, cheer with the spectators, and celebrate with the victorious. We'll go home exhausted, yet happy. Oh man, this really truly ROCKS
