Weekend Adventures: Volunteering at 5 Peaks Alice Lake

Saturday, April 16

The 5 Peaks Alice Lake race was only two weeks after my first 100k and since I was still in recovery mode, I decided to volunteer. This way I’d get my fix of running without actually having to race. I have also made a point to volunteer lots this year to make up for not volunteering at all my first few years of running (oops)!

Kyle, Rosie, and I carpooled up to Squamish where we met up with Willa and Chris. We were all course marshals along the extra enduro course loop. Before the race started Kyle and I also helped with the kids 3k event. They always impress me with their speed and endurance! We immediately departed for our course marshaling spots with only mild confusion about where we were supposed to be positioned.

It was fun watching everyone race and I saw lots of people I knew on the enduro loop. Unfortunately, I missed a few that did the sport course. After all the runners were through, we ran out the rest of the route with the sweeps.

I started running about three years ago. Until this time i had never considered myself a runner and actually hated running. I'm not sure what changed but i'm glad it did! I enjoy sharing my thoughts, training, and experiences through my blog and encouraging and supporting others in their running journeys. Since becoming a runner, I have completed a handful of half marathons, three full marathons, and four ultra marathons. However, my biggest accomplishments have been running the Rim2Rim2Rim in the Grand Canyon and completing a seven-day, 250km stage race in the Alps. These were adventures of a lifetime and something I had never imagined that I would do even in my wildest dreams!
