Back in October, I posted some tips on how to be an awesome race spectator. After cheering for my friend, Jenica, at the Rock and Roll Half Marathon over the weekend, I came up with some additional tips that I wanted to share with all of you! So, let’s get into it!
How are you guys doing this lovely Tuesday morning? Last Sunday, I went to cheer my friend Katie on at The Biggest Loser Half Marathon in Everett, WA. Since I didn’t actually participate in the run, I couldn’t do a typical race recap, but I thought it would be cool to give you all some tips I’ve learned along the way on how to be an awesome race spectator in case you decide to spectate at a race in the future. I actually really enjoy spectating at races and this one was even more fun that usual because I was able to meet up with Katie three different times along the race course AND at the finish line thanks to some lovely race officials that gave me a ride from the around mile 10 to the finish line. I was BEYOND grateful they offered to give me a ride. It was a race day miracle because otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to get some photos of Katie PRing for her race recap! It was also really awesome to see some of the same runners at different parts of the race, develop a rapport with them and see them cross the finish line at the end. Definitely time well spent on a Sunday morning!
