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!

We are so glad we had a group of approximately nine Annapolis Striders. Thank you again, Laura Amin, for suggesting the Severn Inn. Thank you and shout out to Jami Curtis, General Manager of the Severn Inn, for reserving our outdoor space. Jimmy Wilson reports Annapolis Striders showed up for a chilly outdoor social on the deck of the Severn Inn, located at 1993 Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard, Annapolis, MD 21409. What a great and different view of the Severn River bridge for so many runners.

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.
Please remember that ALL Annapolis Striders members are welcome at our monthly Board Meetings, the first Tuesday of each month 7:00 pm. Meetings are currently virtual
January 5th, February 2nd, March 2nd, April 6th, May 4th, June 1st, July 6th, August 3rd, September 7th, October 5th, November 2nd, December 7th..
