...yeah, I'm going there.
SO! Wifey and I may have put on a race or two over the past few years ourselves, and we may have helped friends put on races over the past few years too...
...breathing in, breathing out....
I'll start by saying you can't please everyone, and there's always going to be THAT guy/gal. And if you're THAT guy/gal stop reading now...because you're just gonna get pist, or pissier...because you're already a pist off at the world piece of shit.
Helpful hint number one. NEVER get pist at a race promotor. If you've never put on a race, or even helped... you have no fracking idea the number of hours that these people put into putting on a race.
Helpful hint number two. Pay attention to the course, all racing courses are marked...breath in, breath out....pay attention!!!
Helpful hint number three. If you see something that went wrong, or something that could be improved, just tell the promotor...or someone on the promotion staff.
Helpful hint number four. NEVER, for any fracking reason get in a promotors face and cause an issue...period!!
...breathing in, breathing out.
I'll end this with saying this....I have a new best friend at running races....I'm really looking forward to talking to him when I see him next race....but he may not see the starting line.
