It was Meet your Annapolis Striders 10 Miler training coaches with Coach David Dold and Coach Henry Schut!! Super fun night at a location new to us, the ITALIAN MARKET OF ANNAPOLIS, 126 Defense Hwy, Annapolis, Maryland. It was super simple: order, pay, find a place to sit with our Annapolis Striders family, your food was delivered shortly after ordered and at some point, during our social some brave soul ordered gelato…which set off a chain reaction leading half of the folks attending the social to also order gelato.
Thank you, Nat Scott, for reserving our space and assisting folks with selecting their wine. Huge shout out to Leslie Sparks for photos capturing another fun social!!
