Doing untold numbers of post-race massages for our esteemed marathon participants today was hard work. But being together with a fantastic group of coworkers made it great. I believe we did close to the 120 massages (last count was 112 at just after 1:00), which is how many we did last year and the year before. I know it got a little tight at times with so many people nearly dying (running can do that to you) to receive one of our quality post-race sessions.
Special thanks to Angela and to Kristi for taking this event and running with it. Uh . . . pun intended! Organizing this entire event for us is a huge undertaking, and we know you put a ton of effort into making it come together so well. Great job! Missoula Marathon number 7 is in the bag.
To everyone involved, all the way from being at hugely the successful Expo, to the folks on the front lines, to massage coordinators, to bottle washers, to the Alpine runners, and to our tired-handed PTs, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! Thanks for giving your time to be there in Alpine array and with your gorgeous smiles . . . and for steading the load for the team. We appreciate all your involvement!
Here’s to our 7th consecutive annual marathon sponsorship. Hooray!
Brent . . . one tired Alpine dude!
