OK, so I just spent the last hour or so doing pretty much the dorkiest thing I could ever do. I created a "race resume." I'm not exactly sure if that is something that exists, but I am going to attempt to get some sponsors for next season. I have absolutely no idea how to do this but I figured having all of my race times and results in one place is a good idea. Also I wrote up a sweet little bio and included some photos and my PRs at various race distances.
I'm not very creative; I mean my degree is in Biology. I can write and format the hell out of a lab report, although it may bore your tail off, but marketing-type stuff intended to make people like me - such as a resume - I am just not good at designing. (Plus, I hate the Microsoft Word that is out now because it is way different than what I used to use in college!) Once I get over the embarrassment of having made the stupid thing, I might let someone help me with it.
I'm not even sure if this is the way to go about getting a sponsor? I mean right now I could just spam a bunch of companies with this resume. But would that work? I have no idea.
If you have sponsors and would like to advise, please feel free! :)
