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.
We love to walk, and do it FAST! Some, REALLY fast! Others, just have fun and get healthy.
