AID STATIONS!! VOLUNTEERS NEEDED JULY 29, AUG 12, SEP 9
If you are joining the free runs, you are obligated to volunteer for one aid station during the summer. You have 3 chances left to fulfill this obligation for free runs. Sign by clicking http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0848a5a72da2fc1-thank The marathon provides the supplies and you, runners, provide the volunteers. Before your turn, we call or email and remind you and tell you where and when to arrive. When you show up, we give you jugs of water, already diluted sports drink, cups, pitchers, garbage bags and first aid supplies. Some volunteers have been known to provide special treats such as jelly beans, gummy bears or tootsie rolls. You can ask your family to help as well. If you've never been a volunteer, this is your opportunity to help your fellow marathoners.
Having trouble getting out the door for those long runs? Wonder how you'll get from 20 miles runs to 26.2? Most experienced marathoners know that much of the marathon preparation takes place in your head. For some tips on psychological preparation see http://www.teamoregon.com/publication/online/mind.html.
