After days with low clouds and fog, the skies broke over Friday Harbor for a mostly sunny first annual Turkey Trot. Eighty-eight runners and walkers braved chilly but ideal late November temperatures to work off some yet-to-be-eaten calories. Young, old, families and individuals, locals and visitors traveled the 5 kilometer (3.1 mile) out and back course on Lampard Street.

Winning the men's division with a time of 20 minutes, 44 seconds was Friday Harbors Brendan Cowan. The first overall woman was Kim Erickson, also of Friday Harbor, with a time of 23 minutes, 52 seconds. Each walked home with a pumpkin pie as their "first pies trophy". Complete results will be posted at www.sanjuanislandmarathon.com in the near future.

Other winners included the food bank, with nearly 200 cans of food and the Thanksgiving Community Dinner, who will receive the proceeds from the event.
