May 2017 - Lacey Phillips

Congratulations and thank you to Lacey Phillips, our May 2017 Volunteer of the Month! Lacey has been an encouraging presence to participants running with our In-Training programs for almost two years. As a run lead, she enjoys meeting fellow Atlanta Track Club members and helping them reach their race day goals. In addition to her commitment to training, she also enjoys working at packet pick up at more than a dozen Atlanta Track Club events each year.

1. When was your first time volunteering with Atlanta Track Club and what brought you back again?Volunteer of the Month

I volunteered for number pick-up for the PNC Atlanta 10 Miler at Big Peach Brookhaven on Friday, October 23, 2015. I love getting to meet race participants and hear their running story and whether this is their first time participating in the race or what their favorite part of the race is.

2. What is your favorite Atlanta Track Club event? Why?

It’s hard to pick a favorite Atlanta Track Club event because I enjoy so many of them, but when I have to choose one, I would say the PNC Atlanta 10 Miler. It is such a challenging course with so much spectator support, and you feel such a sense of accomplishment when you finish the race.

3. What is one of your best memories from volunteering at any race?

My best memories are from the participants of the In-Training programs who have put in the hard work and cross that finish line that they may have not thought was possible at the beginning of the season. This was particularly true for the Publix Georgia Marathon as I was able to see a couple of my participants cross the finish line of their first marathon.

4. What is your favorite thing about volunteering with Atlanta Track Club? Volunteer of the Month
 
My favorite thing about volunteering with Atlanta Track Club is working with other members who are so passionate about running, helping others meet their goals, and having a great time at events.

5. What other organizations do you volunteer for and why?

I am a volunteer board member for the Atlanta Chapter of Trinity University’s Alumni Association. I also volunteer with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and their Strong4Life program.

6. What do you do for a living?  

I work as a Senior Financial Systems Analyst for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

7. Tell us something interesting about yourself – an interesting fact or story that will help us get to know you…
 
When I’m not running I enjoy reading and watching the Atlanta Braves.
