Sharon A, Laura M, Linda R, and Jodi S represented the Buckeye Striders in the Hilltop USA 5K which honors our Veterans. It was hot & steamy already at 8:30 AM when the race started. Many thanks to the Columbus Mounted Police and their horses for allowing us a post-race photo.
The Buckeye Striders were represented in two Central Ohio Races on Independence Day in New Albany and Clintonville. In the New Albany race, Steve won his Age Group and placed 2nd in the competitive walking division.
A dozen Buckeye Striders gathered on Saturday morning at Scioto Audubon for our weekly group walk. It was a beautiful morning! On Saturday, we had Striders participate in the Bakersfield Taco Bout it 5K at Three Creeks.
Jodi represented the Buckeye Striders at her community race, the Plain City 4 Miler on Saturday, June 22 sponsored by the Uptown Plain City Community Organization. The race course changed slightly because of construction. The weather was beautiful and, of course, the Der Dutchman donuts at the finish were fantastic!
Members of the Buckeye Striders walked in the Run with Passion 5K at Glacier Ridge on Saturday and also the Jack Roth 5K in Bexley on Sunday. The Run with Passion featured beautiful wood carved medals. Congratulations to our Laura M, Linda R, and Sharon for age group wins at Jack Roth and Sharon on her PR!
On Saturday, Laura M competed in the Ohio Games which included 1 mile, 5K, 10K, and Beast distances. Eight Buckeye Striders participated in the Columbus 10K in downtown Columbus on Sunday. Sharon, Linda, and Steve placed in their respective age groups and won coffee mugs. Laura M came out to cheer us on. The shirts and medals for the 10K are both pretty nice.
The Striders participated in the Medina Half and the New Moon Quarter Marathon in Delaware as well as the Field of Heroes 5K on Sunday. The storm that went through Delaware on Saturday only resulted in a 5 minute race delay and cooler temperatures. The Field of Heroes 5K was delayed by a half hour.
Laura, Sharon, and Linda from the Buckeye Striders completed the Dayton Spring half marathon and 10K over the weekend. Laura and Sharon were winners in their respective age groups. Great job, ladies!
The Buckeye Striders were represented in the Stop the Sufferings 5K on Saturday and the Mother's Day Inclusion Revolution 5K on Sunday. On Sunday, we got to meet the most adorable nephew of one of our club members before the race! Saturday had the better weather for a 5K but drizzle & cold doesn't dampen our spirits.
We love to walk, and do it FAST! Some, REALLY fast! Others, just have fun and get healthy.
