Eight Buckeye Striders braved the cold on Saturday, February 9th to participate in the Bluejackets 5th Line 5K. It was great to be out in the sunshine and to finish on "center ice" but we're really looking forward to going to hockey game together in March!
Four Buckeye Strider walkers braved the snow for last week's weekly club walk. Another round of snow is forecast for this coming weekend. Please see our Walk Schedule page for our walk locations as well as cancellation policy: www.buckeyestriders.com/walk-schedule.html
We had 17 members of the Buckeye Striders participate in the First on the First 5K up in Westerville. The weather was not too cold and it was not pouring down rain. What a fantastic way to start off 2019!
Sharon, Linda, and Laura didn't let the rain & cold stop them from completing the "Freeze Your Fanny" 5K & 10K at Sharon Woods. Great job, ladies!
The cold weekend didn't stop members of the Striders from participating in races! We had a great group at the One Warm Coat 4 miler in Lewis Center on Saturday. Three of us walked in the Dublin Snowflake 5K on Sunday where we received free pizzas in addition to the mug and sweatshirt.
Members of the Buckeye Striders made their way through the cold and rain to finish the Santa 5K on Saturday. Great job to all who participated!
The Buckeye Striders participated in a variety of food themed races during the past couple of weeks:
The Donut Run
The Hot Chocolate 15K
The Marysville Pumpkin Dash 5K
The GC 5K Wattle (Sharon got a pie!)
The Leftover Run
The Hungry Turkey
These ladies participated in the Buckeye 10K & Half Marathon in Penisula enjoying good company and beautiful scenary.
BJ competed in the Stache Dache 5K while Jodi & Linda slopped through the mud at the Viking Dash held at Alum Creek. Congrats to Linda who did the 5K and won her age group. Jodi did the 20K and came in 60 out 60 but she finished!
The rainy & cold weekend did not stop the Striders from participating in a variety of races during the weekend. Great job to all!
We love to walk, and do it FAST! Some, REALLY fast! Others, just have fun and get healthy.
