Left the house at 9am, went and picked up my dad and we headed over to pick my giant truck. We are headed to the Calgary Marathon Race site to get loaded to deliver Aid Stations in the morning.
I really dig driving big trucks! Can you tell?
We headed down to the race site to get set up with our equipment and supplies for our assigned Aid Stations. I got the 10k Station, and Marathon Stations 1,2,3 and 14. We start at 4:45 Sunday morning and because we have the first 3 stations we GOTTA BOOGIE!
Waiting for our spot to load up.
A few of the fearless leaders! I have been around a few organizing committee's and this group is a good as I have seen. Working hard and having fun! What more can you ask for?
The logistics to pull off a race this size is mind boggling.
- 48 tables
- 25 trash cans and 125 garbage bags
- 72 cans of Gatorade mix
- 1000 Gu’s
- 20 giant Gatorade barrels
- 300 sponges
- first aid kits
- etc etc
My home for the better part of Sunday.
Everyone worked so hard! And smiled the whole time! It was a fantastic group effort.
These guys did most of the heavy lifting. I would almost like driving the Gator better than the truck… Almost.
This is the start line tomorrow. I can’t wait to see it with thousands of people! ! (the pink bug has a for sale sign in the window. Anyone want the phone number?)
Don’t forget the Km markers!
I will have PLENTY of photos from behind the scenes tomorrow. Stay tuned!
