Page 14 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • April 15, 2009 Waldwick 5K logo (continued from page 5) evolved. The result is a fanciful characterization of two runners breaking through the finish line. “I like to put in personal little facts in my artwork, like the runner is wearing a bib with the Waldwick zip code on it. (Then when we decided to add the second runner I put the race date on his bib,” Barbagallo explained. A muralist, portrait artist and illustrator, Barbagallo is also painting the race route map, highlighting some of Waldwick’s well known landmarks. Kowalski said he took photographs of the actual race route showing what the runners would actually see, and they were incorporated into the map mural. “I thought it would be more interesting for the runners, and they could better visualize the route,” Kowalski explained. The artist, whose brother in law, Bobby Mainenti from Mayo’s Sportswear, is printing the shirts, is self taught in many art mediums and was mentored by well-known Waldwick artist Andrea Mistretta. The Run/Walk is scheduled for Sunday, April 26 (rain or shine) beginning at 9 a.m.; 9:30 a.m. for the 1 mile Walk. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m., with opening ceremonies set for 8:30 a.m. The course has been officially certified and sanctioned by the USATF, giving the event recognition as an official running course in New Jersey.
