Hey friends, family, faithful followers and future IMLP hopefuls. I am here to ask a favor. Tomorrow morning registration opens for Ironman Lake Placid volunteers. I’d like to ask you to take a moment and consider giving back by way of volunteering for this spectacular event.
Whether you’re a runner, biker, swimmer or just a regular joe, you know the value of volunteers. Without volunteers at an event like Ironman, there is just no way that it would happen. It takes two volunteers for every athlete to pull off an event of this magnitude. I have volunteered in some capacity for the last three years. Let me tell you, the volunteers are necessary and as a volunteer it is one of the most rewarding experiences you will have. The reality is that just witnessing the human spirit and triumph involved in an Ironman race is life-changing, but participating in it as a bike handler, aid station worker or a finish line catcher, it’s just overwhelming.
The Volunteers are loved by many!
So, without going on and on, I’m asking you to consider it. Come and join us in this remarkable day and participate in this great event. I would love to see your face as I work to complete my own journey. And I am thanking each and every volunteer now … way far in advance and I promise to thank you again on race day and that day after that, and the day after that.
