Salty I've always thought of triathletes as a friendly bunch, that is why I was so surprised, and embarrassed by their reactions.

If you were volunteering, would you expect thank-yous from all participants during the race? 

I don't expect thank you's because I know when I race I try to thank people but sometimes can't or don't.  PPA is a great example. Early on I was feeling great and laughing with and talking to the volunteers. Once I hit the pain cave it's all a blur but I only remember a couple exchanges with volunteers.

My experience as a volunteer at a sprint triathlon. My reasons for arising before the sun were not to work out, but to volunteer. I wanted to give back to a sport I’m learning to love.

Everyone and anyone that has ever raced in a triathlon should take it upon themselves to volunteer at just one event next season. It is an eye-opening and inspirational experience.

I started the Beginner Triathlete training program in earnest after Chinese New Year. I viewed the distances in the peak week with trepidation - how on earth would I manage it?
