OK...now I'm getting worried. Less than a week to go and we need at least 15 more people.

Come on Lizards!


Jeff

If I had some ham I could make ham and eggs if I had some eggs.

Come on Lizard Nation. This is such a fun way to support the running community. The runners need us and our energy at this point. It's very rewarding to motivate/encourage them at this point in the race. :goodjob:

I will be there for the 8:45 - 11 shift. Unfortunately, that is the only slot that works for me that day. I might be able to swing back for a little bit bit after pacing a friend visiting from out of town, since the 11 shift looks a little thin at the moment.

My pacing duties end around 9.

I'll come by to help as soon after that as I can.

We're looking much better here, but I would love to see another 5 folks spread across each of the shifts. Please let me know if you have some time to give back to Portland's running community this Sunday.

We still need some more Lizard paws on the ground for this caper!

Who can bring some fun, interesting upbeat music with them to the aid station ? I will bring my iPod but my musical selection tends to run towards the depressing :-) We need some high energy tunes to power the people through. If you will be there Sunday morning, just grab your player (and cord !) as leave your house. The more music, the merrier !

If think the sound system has an iPod attachment, so if you just have an iPod loaded with a marathon mix, that would be perfect. My music selection is probably similar to yours Chris - some stuff that works, but a lot of stuff people don't know or that tends towards the depressing. That never works for marathoners, as much as it might be true around mile 24 ;)

And I plan to be at the aid station after pacing, but based on pacing first half, running over and hanging out at aid station until my group runs through, running to the finish with them, and then finding my car and driving it back over... I'm not sure what time that means I am there and fully prepared for a shift or two. Seems like I should be there by 11:00 or so - so I'll be there for whatever shift that is.

OK guys!! Twelve hours until GO TIME! Here are all the volunteer details. See you in the morning!

Location:

The aid station is located adjacent to the Albina/Mississippi MAX station. HERE is the google map of the spot.
Nearby landmarks include Legacy Randall Children's Hospital and the Fremont Bridge. It's on Interstate Ave between N Russell and N Page.

Parking:

Access and parking are pretty plentiful and straight forward. If you arrive prior to the course shutting down (early!) make sure to park EAST of interstate so that you do not get blocked in. Interstate Ave will close around 7:15AM and open back up around 1-2PM on Sunday.

Contact:

Reach me here by e-mail up until the evening before. On race day try me on my cell phone, 253-732-3014 if something comes up.

Clothing:

Please keep an eye on the forecast to making sure you dress appropriately. Lows in the morning in the 40's and high towards 70. Besides being warm, please wear comfortably clothing that you don't mind getting sticky electrolyte on:-). LIZARD GEAR, if you have, is the uniform:) You can also get an official, Portland Marathon volunteer shirt. Please ask me if you're interested.

Supplies:

Bring food for yourself if you need it! We'll just have gummy bears.

Shifts:

Here is what I have down for shifts. Let me know if you see an error!

6:45 am 9am
Liz S, Doug L, Nancy, Marcia R, John M,

8:45 am 11am
