Welcome to another season with the Striders. It’s amazing to think we’ve been running, racing, inspiring and supporting each other since 2004. That’s a lot of laps around the track and miles on the roads!
Our club continues to grow and we eagerly welcome new members. Our Wednesday workouts remain our training “mainstay.” We’re always challenged by Coach Kathy, and we all look forward to sharing news about upcoming races, recent accomplishments, and even the latest good book. And we’re out in the community, volunteering and running as teams in the Love Lane “Run for Love,” the Wellesley Turkey Trot 5K, the Cambridge Classic racing series and more.
We’re all grateful for the sense of community running brings. What could be better than doing something we enjoy and forming friendships along the way? We look forward to seeing you at a weekly workout, on training runs, therapy runs and joyful runs. (And bad runs, because even a bad run is better than no run at all).
"The obsession with running is really an obsession with the potential for more and more life."
