Apparel Chair - Janet McHale


Joined Kingstowne Striders: 2015

About Janet: I started running in 2005 as a way to stay in shape and join my roommate as she decided to sign up for her first 5K. I have enjoyed both the fitness and social aspects of running ever since! I have done several 5Ks, a handful of 10Ks and 10-milers, and 6 half marathons, as well as 3 sprint triathlons and one run/swim biathlon.

Favorite Race Experience: finally getting under 2 hours at the 2015 DC Rock’n’Roll Half

Favorite Race Medal: the trophy I got at the biathlon – it reminds me how I conquered my fear to swim in the ocean that day

Unaccomplished Race Goal: something longer than a half marathon, or an adventure run
