Any runners interested in this opportunity?
I am a PhD candidate that is studying GI issues during running and how to reduce them. One of my dissertation studies involves having runners do 5-minutes of simple breathing exercises each day for 4 weeks and performing a few measurements (surveys, heart rate measures, etc.). As I am sure you can imagine, completing a dissertation in 2020 has been a challenge and I am looking for help! I’ve provided a recruitment flyer that outlines the study and the criteria for participating. Any help you could give would be very much appreciated!
 
I’d be happy to answer any questions about the study or provide additional information about what it involves.

Message to Our Members
We recently conducted a survey to find out how you are and your thoughts on what you would like to see the club doing. Thank you for your participation. If you have not yet completed your survey, please do so!
To date, we have received 281 responses split almost evenly between male/female. The majority of you are doing well which makes me happy to hear. Following are some of the responses:
·        Split about 50/50 for bringing back racing & training.
·        The majority are happy with socials as they are.
·        91% think we are still a good value and will be renewing their membership.
·        72% of those that responded are running solo.
·        55% of those that responded would like small group meetups.
·        68% of those that responded would like in person training.
·        Responses were split evenly on virtual races.
We hear you! Nothing would make us happier than to bring back racing and training. Unfortunately, with the rise in Covid-19 cases, it is not an option at this time as we are unable to obtain permits from Anne Arundel County. In the meantime, we are currently offering virtual Winter 5K training and will be starting virtual half-marathon training with the new year. Information about these training programs will soon be available on the Annapolis Striders website.
Stay positive. This will pass and we will be back training and racing in person before you know it!
I wish you and your family a Happy Holiday!

NOVEMBER
Hello fellow Annapolis Striders,
 
It is with a heavy heart that I must announce that the 4th Annual Wreaths Across America Two Rivers Run will not be held this year, at least not as we had originally planned and hoped for.
 
While the planned run date is still three months away, it takes significant planning and preparation to get ready. And if 2020 has taught us anything so far it is that we have no way of knowing what is going to happen in the next three months. Therefore I have made the decision to convert the run/walk into a “Do it yourself 5k (or one mile) virtual fun run/walk.” So on Saturday November 7th (or a date near there) get bundled up and go out for a run/walk.  Take a selfie of your “race” and we’ll collect them and post the pictures virtually. This way we can all honor our veterans while staying safe and healthy.
 
For an informal event like this there will obviously be no registration fee. Instead I hope that you will continue to honor our veterans by purchasing a wreath.
 Last year our goal for was 1,000 wreaths which equals raising $15,000. I know we can do this!  In fact, I know we can do even better this year! 
Last year our goal for was 1,000 wreaths which equals raising $15,000. I know we can do this!  In fact, I know we can do even better this year!
 
To purchase a wreath go to the Wreaths Across America Website
 
$15 gets you one wreath but $30 gets you THREE!
If you want to donate by check you can make checks payable to WAA and mail to 
Noreen Leary 
1235 Beaver Tree Drive 
Odenton, Md 21113 
 
Wreaths will be laid on December 19th.
 Thank You
