THIS SATURDAY – Winans to Winans Community Walk For All People
The Community Walk For All People is this Saturday. We still step off at 8am. Please come out, brings friends and join us for a fun 3-mile walk from the Winans in German Village to the Winans Downtown. It will be a beautiful route through the Scioto-Audubon Park and along the Scioto Mile. We ask you to bring to the start a new or gently used article of winter clothing to donate to the For All People Free Store serving our South Side community. We will have collection boxes to receive the donations. In addition, if you come out a little early, you can try on running shoes from Second Sole—and even test them out by wearing them during the walk. Afterwards, Winans will offer all walkers free coffee and chocolates at their downtown location. A few prizes will be raffled off.
Columbus Marathon – Nailed It!
I am so proud of our GVWC Marathoners: Maureen Redovan, Jim McVay, Steph Ladson-Wofford, and Linda Romanoff! Hats off to Mike Erlichman who completed his first marathon. Mike trained with the group and finished just behind them. They trained well, they trained hard, and they trained as a unit. They were solid throughout the race, under less than ideal conditions: it was warm, humid, and windy. Thanks to Coach Vern Payne, who every Wednesday morning, coached the group through its paces during their speed day. Their hard work paid off well as everyone placed in the competitive marathon race walking age group category. Sensational!
- Maureen – 1st Place
- Jim – 1st Place
- Linda – 2nd Place
- Mike – 2nd Place
- Steph – 3rd Place
Special shout out to Karin Beaulieu and Karen Edwards for their half marathon race. Also, thanks to our cheering squad: Andrea, Vicky, Chris, Priscilla, Chris, David, Otto, Christie, Darla, and Chuck. Rest up, folks. See next blurb for marathon recovery tips.
