Today I am heading down to the Expo at the Georgia Dome to both pick up my number, but also because I am volunteering at packet pickup. I have volunteered for different races, including the mile 18 water stop of this Georgia Marathon a few years back, but have never volunteered at the Expo before. I am really looking forward to the excitement of all the runners today.
On race morning my daughters are also volunteering at a water stop as part of a group for the Amanda Riley Foundation. Amanda was a runner on the Brookwood XC team the year before my daughters started running for Brookwood. I think they are at one of the later water stops so I will not be passing them like I would have if I was running the full marathon. That could be a good thing since do they really want to see their dad looking like death when he still isn't finished with the marathon? :)
If you are running the Publix Georgia Marathon and will be picking up your packet today make sure you look me up - I am the bald one :)
