I started my new job this week. So far it's just been a lot of reading materials and watching videos from the 90's. I can't wait to actually start working. I am loving being with adults again!
Sunday I volunteered at Ironman Louisville. It was an awesome experience!
|This little boy was so cute. He was standing there|
eating the potato chips and pretzels as he was handing them out!
And good lord have mercy, there are some ridiculously fine men and women out there!! Definitely inspires me to keep getting in shape. :)
I knew after volunteering, I would want to become an Ironman. And I do.
What stops me is the amount of training that goes into it. I don't know how people have the time! I guess you just have to have a very understanding spouse/family who is ok with not seeing you for a very long time. Since I don't have my own children, that would make it a little easier for me too.
What also stops me is the $650 fee!! Really?? Really.
Maybe for now an Ironman will just be added to my bucket list...
If you ever have a chance to volunteer at something like this- DO IT. Just knowing you played a small part in helping or encouraging someone to cross that finish line, is an amazing feeling.
Would you ever do an Ironman?
Do you like volunteering for events?
