The K1 started things off. In photo 1, they were anxiously waiting for the gun so they could start the race. In the 2nd photo, you can see
one boy covering his ears in anticipation. Janice Ash Sialiano with Withers Preserve got the races started along with several volunteers.
Pre-race anticipation. The runners above were getting ready for the 5K or 8K race.
By unofficial count, Betsy Alexander placed 4th among women racers. She is the daughter of
our friends Dave Alexander, South Strand office Chicora Coldwell-Banker, and his wife Barbara.
Several dogs participated in the races. Others just cheered. Medals were awarded and refreshments
were available. Everyone we talked to said they are looking forward to Turkey Trot 2008.
