ROCKY RACCOON 2010

Been meaning to write something about running (with Chris and the incomparable Mariela) the Park Road Aid Station at this year's Rocky Raccoon 100 (and 50). First off, major thanks to everyone who came out and volunteered. Hope it was a good experience for everyone. Second, a quick observation: it's f-ing hard work to run an aid station at a 100, especially one at a huge (5-loop) race like Rocky Raccoon. By my rough estimates, that's well over 2500 runner visits. Keeping things running relatively smoothly is a full-time job for all the volunteers. Finally, kudos to Joe and Joyce Prusaitis, and Henry Hobbs, and all the other folks who put on this race (and so many other great races) - best outfit in the business IMHO. A couple of photos from Park Road (with its totally tacky Mardi Gras theme) to follow.
