 2015 

We started off this year with our New Year's Relays by the Lake!

We also ran ON Martin Luther King Day to... what else? The MLK statue in DC.

We continued on through this year's endless winter, snow, and ice.

We volunteered at Edison's 9th Annual Got Hope Walkathon

Two of us ran the Marine Corps Marathon Historic 10K in Fredericksburg.

Congrats to the Striders who participated in Wave One's open water swim at National Harbor on May 27! Four Striders completed a total of 8 laps in the Potomac before we had to end early due to approaching thunder - that's almost 2800 meters or 2 miles of swimming! We will arrange for another group open water swim sometime in August and/or September in preparation for the Nation's Triathlon.

On June 4 we held our Inaugural Strides & Hops from Southern Fairfax County's own Fair Winds Brewery. Despite the rain, we had a good turnout, and hope to see more at our next one on June 25!

Strides & Hops on June 4 & 25

Strides & Hops on July 16 and August 6!

Summer Picnic - June 14
We also held our Summer Picnic on June 14 - six years to the day of our first summer cookout back in 2009!

Great turnout - around 40 members joined in the fun at Huntley Meadows. We held a 2 mile fun run, and Amy of Honest Soul Yoga got us all nice and stretched with some yoga as the burgers went on the grill. In addition to other activities and generally hanging out enjoying the (hot!) Sunday, the younger Striders enjoyed gettin' schooled, by Ranger PJ at Huntley Meadows Nature Center.

Monday, November 9 we will be celebrating our Fill the Shoes 5K at LEDO PIZZA in Kingstowne from 5pm - Close.

20% off all sales will be donated to the race which will mean more money for our race beneficiary, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
Please come eat & drink Monday night!
