The Buckeye Striders had a busy race weekend between Run Like a Girl on Saturday 9/28 and Big Bad Wolfe on Sunday 9/29. Some Striders did BOTH races. As always, many of our Striders garnered age group wins in their races.
Eight Buckeye Striders walked in the Cat Caper 5K on Sunday morning to support cat welfare. The event was held at the beautiful Scioto Audubon park. The majority of our Striders placed 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th in their respective age groups.
The Buckeye Striders participated in several races during the past weekend. Sharon A did the Buttefly Run 5K on Saturday and is pictured below. Zita plus Steve & Sharon H walked in the New Albany Walking Classic on Sunday. Zita scored 1st her in age group. Great job, Zita!
Cheryl, Laura, and Sharon represented the Buckeye Striders in the Amish Country 10K in Berlin on Saturday, September 7.
Cindi & Jodi walked in the 5K at the Team Gluten Free even held at Mill Valley Park in Marysville. It was nice, small race with yummy gluten free cupcakes and other gluten free goodies afterward. Cindi won several raffle prizes. There was 2 mile walk option but we walked the 5K "run" instead. Cindi would have one the 2 mile walk with her pace. We'll have to think about what we do next year! Thanks for a great race, Speedy Sneakers!
Laura, Sharon, and Zita took on the Emerald City Quarter & Half Marathon on Sunday, August 25. Great job, ladies!

The Buckeye Striders had another busy weekend. Seven of us gathered on Saturday at Heritage Trail with two new potential members for a great walk and breakfast afterward. We had members participate in the Shawnshank Hustle up in Mansfield with Elaine winning first place in her age group. On Sunday, three members participated in the Frosty 5K benefiting the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
Members of the Buckeye Striders were part of races the past two Sundays. Jodi & Sharon participated in the Nobody's Perfect 5K on 8/4/19 at Glacier Ridge to raise money & awareness for eating disorders. On 8/11/19, Jodi & Sharon did the 10K while Laura did the half marathon at the Original Columbus Races held at Three Creeks Metro Park.
Sharon and Laura completed the Christmas in July 5K in Gahanna. The race collected items to help provide children and their families with Christmas dinner and gifts.
We love to walk, and do it FAST! Some, REALLY fast! Others, just have fun and get healthy.
