@MealsAndMiles post about race volunteering totally inspired me to sign up to volunteer at two races this spring!

I love volunteering for races. If you’re ever in a running slump, sign up and volunteer for a race – there’s nothing more motivating or inspiring than seeing so many thousands of runners of different shapes and sizes cross that finish line. Today I saw runners’ eyes well up with tears of joy after reaching a new PR or crossing a finish line for the first time, I saw ladies older than my grandmother finish a half marathon with smiles that I hope will never fade, and I saw groups of friends just having fun out there. They were all inspiring and have me pumped for my next race.
