Annual BMO Marathon: I was there!

Went downtown for street festival after!
We got a Greek yogurt and a frappicino! 

Langara VOLT program (http://www.langara.bc.ca/student-services/volt/index.html) was recruiting students to participate in the BMO marathon on MAY 5th, 2013. They were short on a few students so I decided to join the crew with my +1.

The volunteer shift was from 7:30-9:45AM at the third water station of the race. Our water station had about 15+ volunteers, 4 tables with 3 volunteers at each table. Two volunteers were responsible for filling up the cups with water and one volunteer pours the large bottled water in to the jug.

It was a fun experience being able to provide participants with much needed water and cheering on people who challenges themselves despite getting watery shoes. Looking at the BMO marathon official site, the entry fee is put towards the event. So it doesn't go towards charity like Vancouver Sun Run does.

As the sponsors couldn't provide us with food on time, we were given $5 Starbucks gift card. So we went on a "Starbucks date" after volunteering.

It was an amazing weekend because we were playing beach volleyball the day before at Spanish banks east the whole day. So we were pretty sore and tired. 

After the event, my +1 decides to join the party next year, we’ll see how it goes ;)
