Another “Cheers” To The Volunteers

by altardy on July 21, 2013

IMG_0014IMG_0011I have written many, many times about how special volunteers are.  Without them there would be no races.  And they do it with a smile no matter what you and I may ask of them.

Sheila was one of the first volunteers I talked with after arriving.  She was in charge of the water stops.  Quite important to a race in  90 degree heat.  She asked the race director, Mac, very specific questions pertaining to the water and was making sure everything was in place and available.IMG_0012

Karen, amongst other things, has the same spot during registration that I have at some of the races I help put on.  She’s a greeter and a director.  With a great smile she fields runners questions and directs them to the places they are looking for.IMG_0014

Laura was there representing the Power Bar maker.  She, along with many other venders were handing out free products and taking care of all the runners.


These 5 volunteers giving out the awards are excited, enthusiastic and always encouraging others.  

There are 3 entries after this one that are all about the runners.  But, remember that we are able to run because of the volunteers. Be curtious and thank them next time.
