Manning the Waterstop

The George Sheehan Classic was held this morning in Red Bank. One of the lesser known aspects of this footrace is the volunteer effort to man waterstops. For nearly fifteen years, my wife and daughter have been joining my wife's friends from the now-defunct Prudential Property and Casualty Company in Holmdel in providing water to runners on Hance Avenue at Waterstop 3. Some of her friends have been handing out water cups for 25 years, when the race was held in Asbury Park. More and more, the task is being adopted by the next generation. My daughter even brought her boyfriend along. A great time was had by all.
