What's it like to volunteer at an ultramarathon?
"You have to keep in mind that although the temps may have reached the upper 40′s during the day, we started out at 19F according to my truck thermometer and dipped way down in the 30′s on Saturday night. We saw plenty of runners who were in a zombie state that would stand across our aid station table with a blank stare… we would have to talk them through some options and really encourage them to try something before we would actually get a request. We may have missed a few, but I believe our volunteers were able to get some runners back out on the course with a little more clarity of mind and focus on the task at hand." - Lynn Ballard, DamNation Crew Chief at 2011's Rocky Raccoon 50 and 100 miler
