Zach Pierce and I will be trading places at next week's Zumbro 100. Zach has spring fever and was just itching to run instead of volunteer. I okayed it with R.D. Larry Pederson, and he agreed to let us swap places. So, it's a win-win-win situation. Zach gets to run 100, I get to volunteer and have a good time out in the woods at Zumbro Bottoms, and Larry keeps his field and crew intact. Wee-ha!! Mentally, it's a relief knowing that I won't even be thinking about running the race and can just focus on resting and healing however long it takes. I've got another volunteer gig coming up in May at the Ice Age 50, where I'll be helping haul water to the aid stations. If ya can't race - volunteer!
