Don’t steal this, you guys. It’s mine.
I was looking at my race schedule the other day, really mad at the fact that I have to run all over the city in the coming weeks to pick up packets for various races. So I got to thinking… why isn’t there a service that would do it for you?
I’m not talking about the postal service, and the crazy cost of having your packet mailed. I’m talking about hiring a runner valet.
You’d pay a flat fee (per race, per month, or per year), and someone would do all of that logistical nonsense for you. They’d get your packet and deliver it to your house. Or to the race, when you get there. Then you wouldn’t have to worry about all of this shit. And the races that make you go to the expo? They would find a way around that, cut through that red tape so that you could continue sitting on your sofa drinking beer and watching the NFL like a normal person.
Personally, I’d rather pay someone to get this crap for me than have to take the train or drive or anything involving effort and unnecessary spending on my part. I still want to race! It’s all become so complicated.
What do you think? If valet was an option, would you do it?
