If you are anything like me, when you first start an exercise program and you are still excited about it, it’s sometimes hard to remember to rest. You feel good, you are ready to get fit, things are all moving in a positive direction. Why waste a day resting.
If you ever get the chance to volunteer at any race of any distance, I would highly reccommend it! The athletes are so inspiring and they are working so hard. And I know from racing that the little bit of encouragement received from the volunteers is always appreciated and sometimes desperately needed.
