“Running has grown from a hobby to a passion. Crossing my first finish line in Portland gave me the confidence that I could do ANYTHING I set my mind to, it was empowering.” “ The Striders family is an amazing group of dedicated runners who share the same passion and love of running as I do. They have helped me push myself harder than I thought possible” – Shawna Han
