Diamond Run 2007

The West Limestone Softball Diamond Run included a 10K, a 5K and a 1-mile fun run. The event took place Nov. 3 at the school. Organizers were softball coach Jordan Paul and his mother, Diane. Turnout for the races was small but the event was a grand success thanks to many generous donors in the community. Above, the 10K group shares a shiver while waiting for the race to start.

Clockwise, from top left, Sadie, Sue Ann, Diane and Erin close in on the finish line in the 5K.

At left, eager competitors gear up for the one-mile race under the direction of Coach Jordan Paul, at right.

The following link takes you to the Decatur Daily's article about the 2007 Frosty Freeze 5K, which took place in Decatur on Saturday, Dec. 1.

Limestone Laurels

Several Limestone County runners who earned age-group awards are, from left, Phillip Stewart, Jennifer Pitts, Tanjie Schrimsher, Glen King & Bud Bowen.

Athens Athletes
A good-sized group of Athens women took up running in early 2007, with Susie Holmes in the lead. Here, Susie (in hat) and her family ready for the race with some of their friends. Susie ran the 5K before joining the children and a couple of the husbands in the one-miler.

On your marks...
A lot of stretching and nervous jumping about took place just before the start of the one-miler.


The one-miler gets under way. There's Phillip Stewart smack in the middle with Glen King just behind him in the red shirt. Just about to run off the front edge of the photo is Madelyn Patton, in the white shrit.

Almost to the end of the race. That's Brian Schrimsher in the navy blue shirt with white sleeves.

Glen chases his shadow.
