This is where I got my start in Triathlon back in 2008... and when asked by my tri coach if I could help out, I was happy to! Volunteering at races is a great way to give back and I love meeting new triathletes that are interested in tris but not quite ready to take the plunge into an outdoor tri.
I was a lap counter. Lots of nervous athletes and loved being able to be the person that calmed them down. Great way to start the morning along with a 5 mile slushy run!
