Yesterday I was very fortunate to volunteer at the RnR San Diego Half Marathon and Marathon as bike medic support with California Triathlon. It was my first time riding a marathon on a bike and I have to say it was pretty darn cool.
My friend Lucy and I ended up riding with the half marathon runners, and we rode the first 8 miles with only one person in need of help. Once we reached mile 9, where the marathoners joined the half marathoners around their mile 20, everyone was hurting. Lucy and I rode back and forth between mile 20 and 24 handing out water, salt, Gu, and spraying pain relief.
It was a ton of fun volunteering at RnR San Diego, and everyone was very grateful for our support. Such a cool experience!
