My co-volunteer and I made top hats and signs. The top hats were a big hit. We received numerous compliments from runners and there were a lot of smiling faces - you can't be anything but gleeful when you see someone wearing a top hat adorned with glitter paint.
I booked our hotel for my next attempt. Now I'm crossing my fingers and anxiously awaiting medical clearance.
