Being a race director is a full time job too. Yes there are moments when you are "between seasons" and you get a breather but there is always something that can be planned and worked on so it's a full time job. From planning locations and adjustments due to road conditions to finding sponsorship for the races each year--there is a checklist that never ends. Plan multiple events in a year and you find that there isn't much between the season down time.
I love to help new race directors and even experienced ones looking to change things up so here is your opportunity to ask away and I'll try to be your "Dear Abby." I'm currently in my "between seasons" moment because cross country just finished, indoor season hasn't officially begun, and outdoor track is still far enough away I can say next year! Because I have the extra time, I of course am plugging away on updating our website, working social media, and putting together details for Twas the Night Before 5k which is in its sixth year. Now that I took two seconds to chat...time to go back to the checklist! In the meantime I'm looking forward to hearing from many of you!
