And they're off
Over 175 participants turned out for the 1st Annual Lisa Wade Memorial Run. While some competed in the 5K run, others took part in a "fun" 5K run and 1.5 mile walk. Tony Yurko took home first place honors for the men with a time of 17:12 while Maureen Hall of Lavale, MD headed up the women with a time of 19:09. Afterwards, Maureen, trying to get in under the 19 minute barrier, told us that anyone who says coming back after a pregnancy probably hasn't been pregnant themselves. We'd imagine that she'll be there soon though. Steve Sherrard (19:00) and Ann Rose (22:44) took the wins in the Masters class. Afterwards, participants were treated to their favorite beverages, cookies, and everyones favorite - donut holes!.

Spectators line the rails
Many of the participants and volunteers donned Jerseys in to honor Lisa Wade, who tragically lost her life last year. Lisa's mother Lois was thankful that so many people came out to honor her daughter and glad theat people thought enough of her to participate and contribute to the race in her name.
