I had been planning on racing the Aqua-Velo at the Stansbury Tri, but I have hardly been on my bike at all this year and I decided to volunteer instead.
I got to the race at about 6:00am and met Ally and Cheri, who put me to work checking athletes in. From there I was pulled from packet pickup to help unload and move some equipment. Apparently my beard makes me look scary, because I was asked to work security at the transition area for a while. I then joined a group of other volunteers to be shuttled out to the bike course. In my stylish reflective vest, I worked with Jeff from the Tooele County Sheriff's Department to direct vehicles and cyclists. When the last cyclists was on his way back to the transition area, I caught a ride back and helped pick up trash and then tear down the tents, tables, bike racks, cones, etc. We were all done by about noon.
