This weekend was volunteering of a different sort. I started off my Saturday with a run by the lake with the KRC, It was a perfect morning for a run. I had taken almost 2 full weeks off so I was planning on 3, maybe 4 miles. I ended up running 6 miles with Tom and Jeremy. We talked the entire way so the miles flew by and my leg felt awesome, no pain at all. We kept the pace slow, I had to keep looking at my Garmin and holding the group back, but I was aiming for a slow run to ease back into it. I love running by the lakefront with friends, makes the miles go so much faster and it’s a great way to start a weekend. After running it was time for KRC gab session, everyone meets up at Common Grounds after, the support of the club is great, we have all different paces and distances so its nice to see everyone after and to hear about their run. I need to make more Saturdays, too bad I have races the next two!
After running it was time to get ready to volunteer at Brewfest. Being a former member of the Kilties It’s an event near and dear to me and a big fundraiser for the Kilties. Mindi and I headed there early and helped put together the goody bags for the VIP guests. After almost 4 hours of volunteering we wandered around to enjoy the fest. I didn’t drink, just didn’t feel like it, and it was a lot of fun. I ran into a few coworkers, friends and even some friends I haven’t seen in years! Such a fun event, I’ll miss it next year for a family wedding but I plan on going again in the future. This was the 10 year anniversary of the fest and I have been 8 of the 10 years (I missed year 1 & 2)
The real reason I go to Brewfest is to support the Kilties and they never disappoint.
