January Wrap-Up

Striders Awards Ceremony:
Congratulations to all of our members who won awards at the Strider Banquet on January 10th, 2015.  A special shout out goes to Dorothy Becket and Carlos Renjifo.  Their years of hard work and contributions to the club have earned them each a spot in the Striders Hall of Fame!

Strider Races:
January this year was a fairly quiet month for the Striders Racing Team but there were still some notable performances:

On New Year's Day Brian Shadrick lit up the Winfield Mile in Sykesville, setting a Masters course record and nabbing 4th place in a competitive race.  Brian also got 4th place at the Freeze Your Buns 5k, running a solid 18:18.

Chris Chattin and John Chall turned out for the Burleigh Manor 5k, running 19:17 for 8th place and 20:21 for 14th place, repectively.  Great job guys!

To finish off the month, Tiffany Hevner cracked 90 minutes for the half in the High Cloud Snapple Half Marathon in Potomac, MD.  She ran 1:29:41 for second place!

February is now upon us and the end of winter is sorta almost maybe in sight!  There are only three weeks left until the RRCA Ten Mile Challenge.  Good luck with your training, and stay warm if you can!
