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.
Approximately 10 Striders participated in the weekly walk and quarterly meeting in Worthington on Saturday while Sharon & Laura raced in the 10th Anniversary McConnell 5K. On Sunday, Sharon, Laura, Linda, and Cheryl raced in the Cinco de Mayo 5K.
The Buckeye Striders has a strong showing at the Cap City 5K, Quarter, and Half Marathon on April 27, 2019. Linda & Phil did the 5K, Sharon & Zita did the quarter while Cindi helped keep Sue & Jodi going strong during their first half marathon. Laura M showed her support from the sidelines and got some action shots. Great job to everyone!
We had 14 Buckeye Striders at the Choo Choo 5k & 9 Miler this past Sunday. Most of the group did the 5K but Cheryl, Jodi, and Zita did the 9 mile route. We also got to give Deb many birthday wishes!
The Buckeye Striders were busy as always on Saturday morning. We were well represented at the Three Creeks 10K while three of us training for the Cap City Half completed 10 miles on the Olentangy Trail.
A couple of our Buckeye Striders completed the Pi Day 5K at Highbanks on March 9, 2019. Great job Sharon & Laura!
On Sunday, February 17, 2019 the Buckeye Striders, German Village Walking Club, and Love 2 Reach (L2R) clubs collaborated for a Race Walking Clinic held at the Dublin location of the Columbus Running Club. There were great tips, constructive feedback, great prizes, and fellowship shared among all of the participants. Photos by Larry at the German Village Walking Club
Several of our Striders showed "Heart" by participating at the "It's Not Valentine's Day" 5K in Dublin. Aside from sharing each other's company and a nice walk, they received a very nice mug, a warm sweatshirt, hot chocolate, and pizza.
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!
We love to walk, and do it FAST! Some, REALLY fast! Others, just have fun and get healthy.
