First place waddle time was 16:01. Seventeen-year-old Nick Fmolaro was the fastest waddler (or trotter) in Santee’s Thanksgiving Day Waddle & Trot 5K.  What does a first place winner of a 5K eat for a power breakfast? “P.B.& J,” said Famolaro, a senior at West Hills High School.

“A waddler is someone who is not worried about how they look or their pace,” said Kristine Quirk, race director, for the 2nd Annual Waddle & Trot that numbered more than 600, sponsored by Pathways Community Church.

The 5K started at 8 a.m. at Pathways and the route, according to Quirk, encompassed west Santee, Santee Lakes with a dogleg added on to make it a 5K.

“All levels participated,” said Quirk. “Most participants were local. A lot do this because they like to exercise before Thanksgiving dinner.”

Visible were runners in tutus, knee wraps, and inter-generational family members. A fun run and obstacle course for the very young was held after the main event. All results and rankings for all age groups can be seen at www.pathways.cc.

Herrington said they raised more than $12,000 last year to benefit the Santee Food Bank and the Santee Santas, also this year’s recipients.
