9 + 1: The Volunteer credit

I've set a goal to qualify for guaranteed entry into the 2013 ING New York City Marathon. I plan to achieve this with the 9 + 1 requirement. Essentially, I have to be a NYRR member (which I am), run 9 NYRR sponsored races, and serve as a race volunteer.

I knew from the jump I wanted to get my volunteer opp out of the way, so I signed up as a course marshall for the Manhattan Half-Marathon. Little did I know what I was getting myself.

When I arrived to the site, the park was COVERED in snow.

 Luckily, I was dressed properly!

Because of the inclement weather, they changed the race into a fun run. It was great seeing the dedicated runners make their way around Central Park...twice!  A memorable volunteer opportunity indeed!

Volunteer requirement - CHECK!
