Congratulations to All
Jon and I are so proud of what the OUC Half Marathon and 5k have become, due in a huge part to our awesome staff. Saturday was a long day for all of us, runners, volunteers and workers alike. But it is a great accomplishment for us, to see those smiling faces at the finish receive their medal. And boy was it hot! So some of those smiling faces were not doing so well, some even had to visit the medical tent for some tender loving care. Thankfully we had fantastic volunteers at our water stops helping to hydrate our runners and we had an unlikely couple heading up the set up of those water stops.
Saturday was the final day of a very long first week of employment for our son Chris. Chris recently joined our Track Shack Event family after working elsewhere for two years after graduating from FSU in 2011. His job Saturday was to work with Bob, one of our course managers; so Chris, 23, our youngest employee and Bob, 70 something, our oldest ( sorry Bob) set up all those water stops. I think their call time was 2:30 am!
Good job guys!
