The Kingstowne Striders celebrated their 10th Birthday this January! In honor of our origins, we ran the first 3-mile course our founders created for us. Winter running can be tough, but it is nice to run in celebration with friends.
This was the first truly cold run of the year and the wind... sucked. Stephen decided we were all going to run 5 miles, though. Mission accomplished. Still not sure I can feel my face the next morning, though. Happy winter running, friends!
As runners, we all know we need to train harder and do more than just complete the miles. To help with that, we have started hill workouts on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month! Come join us as we trudge up Telegraph Hill by Ft. Belvoir over and over... sounds fun, right? hah!
Not all of us can be early morning runners. Even still, some of us need motivation like beer to get out there. A bunch of us met at Port City Brewing Company in Alexandria, VA to run along Holmes Run trail. A lot of us are training for Spring half marathons (or full marathons!) so this was a perfect opportunity to get some miles in.
Kingstowne Striders 10th Annual New Years Relay at the Lake is in the books! It was a wonderful turnout, but unseasonably warm for Northern Virginia... 60 degrees! Nuts.
