Being a Blerch on a Couch
I was a Blerch at Beat the Blerch 2014. This was definitely the sweetest race volunteer job I’ve ever had. The job description: Wear a Blerch Suit, encourage people to slow down and take a break, give out cake, and hang out with awesome people on a couch on the side of the trail! Ummm… yes!
As a runner, there are times when people ask me about why I run long distances. Sometimes I talk about the fun of it, and I get the “oh, I could never find running fun” response. I wish the people that could never find running fun had met all the people at Beat the Blerch! I had an amazing time sitting on that old, sweat-soaked couch with those amazing runners. Thanks to everyone who sat with me, took a little power-nap, had a slice of cake, or gave the Blerch a high-five! You’re all the best.
Some of My Favorite Visitor Photos!
I wasn’t expecting to pose for so many photos. I’m sure there are many I’ll never see, but here a few of my favorites that I found!
