I have been running with the Stiders for around four years now. When I first came to the group I had just started running again and was pretty slow. I had ran for PT in the Military but had never ran any kind of foot race, I was not sure I was going to fit in. That did not matter at all and the group on Thursdays welcomed me right in. Over the past couple of years I have been inspired by so many members to push past what I thought I could do. In running and life sometimes things go well and sometimes they don't but the Striders have always been supportive whether you are first or last, right or left, nobody cares we just like to run.
