2 Brenda Roggy 22.31 I did this run on my own at a park in the city near me, Zearing Park. The weather was perfect and running a virtual run helps me to push like I’m in a race with others, though it’s just me. So this was a great training run for me!
3 Maria Morris 24 Hello I took part in my weekly 5k park run with my running friends, Saturday 21 November the running club is called The Coolers. There is always guaranteed laughs before and after the run! This was a new park run event which was very hilly on a cold, wet Saturday morning and I still managed to enjoy my run. As soon as I saw Moonjoggers on Facebook I knew who I wanted to run and dedicate my hug medal for. I took up running in January and it has changed my life and me for the better. I feel better about myself and the friends and opportunities it has presented to me. I would encourage everyone to the get their trainers on and get outside :-)

14 Isabelle Rodrigue 28 I am slowly running again after a 6 weeks break. I had to back out of my first planned marathon a month before the event du to injury. Your Hug-a-Runner 5 k was a perfect little reminder that I will get back into shape. Slowly but surely. My daughter coloured my bib and gave me my medal afterward. I ran around my neighbourhood, alone. It was quiet, peaceful… A nice moment for me to enjoy some alone time away from my 4 kids! Thanks!

63 Nicole Welder 32 My last run (with hubby) before heading to Las Vegas for the Rock and Roll 5K and 1/2 marathon!! I’m so excited. Plus, there is no snow!!! We always run by the river!
64 maria vega 32 I chose Lake Merrit in Oakland Ca. because i had never been around it. I realized it was a 5k distance and knew it would be perfect. I ran alone then walked around once more with my Mom. The weather was perfect, some sun then sudden clouds. There is park all around so the scenery was very pleasant. I went to mass right across the street after my run to praise the Lord. I dedicate my run to all amateur runners like myself who just try and want to feel healthy. This is maybe my close to 10th 5k and plan on doing more….

77 Andrea Bartusevicius 33
78 Colleen Bartlett 33.53 Thank you to Dawn Smith for signing me up so we could run this race together from two different states.
79 Janet Sproule 33.55 This was my first run since I took a 3 day break due to injury. I chose my usual route starting at Gideon’s Green and running through Hazelbank Park but instead of continuing on until I reached 5K I turned around and went back the way I came once I hit the half way mark in case my injury started playing up. It was a good run, despite, or because of, the rain and I really enjoyed being back at it.

84 Cindy Anderson 34 What an awesome day for a run with the best girlfriends. We started out with a 2 minute silence in honour our war veterans and fallen soldiers, that was emotional. Sun was shining , sky was blue, a bit of snow on the ground , couldn’t have asked for a better day.

93 Christine Parry 35 This is a photo of our little running group, based in the farming community of Chilliwack, BC, Canada (it is about 120 km’s east of Vancouver). The original group of 4 of us are in our 50’s. We started running together last year, meeting at 5:30 a.m. 3 times a week. Our goal was to run a half marathon on May 3rd, 2015. We started training in January, and completed the Vancouver BMO Half Marathon together. We went on to run the Scotiabank Half Marathon on June 28, also in Vancouver. We continue to meet for our early morning runs, and now our group is growing. We have a Facebook page called “Running in the Wack” , and we add new members every day. We post our planned runs and invite anyone who wants to join us. This morning’s run was awesome, as we welcomed another new runner to our group. It’s dark when we start, and just getting light when we finish – in time to see the sun rising over the mountains. And we always end with a group hug. :)
94 Marilyn Wolff 35.28
95 Martha Swick 36 A friend and I run our own 2 person Gobbler Gallop the morning of Thanksgiving. We run in Erie, PA, and for November 26th it was a rather nice day. It was warm, but breezy so it was a nice day for a 5K.
96 Mary McDade 36 A friend and I run our own 2 person Gobbler Gallop the morning of Thanksgiving. We run in Erie, PA, and for November 26th it was a rather nice day. It was warm, but breezy so it was a nice day for a 5K.
97 Michelle Bidwell 36 It was a chilly night and for the first time ever, there were no dog walkers! There were just a bunch of teenagers wishing me well on my run. My neighbourhood is really nice. I run within the roads, on the sidewalks at night. It’s so nice out here.

102 Sharon Haussmann 3658 This was such a special run for me. I joined a 5 5ks in 5 days challenge and this was number 3 for me. It represented getting over the hump. Which is the best part of running. The race to the end, the knowledge you’re almost there. I want to give a big hug to all the runners out there. Though we are separated by distance we are joined together in our love and appreciation of running. Many blessings to you!! Sharon

121 Susan Gibbs 39 I got up early on Thanksgiving and ran. It was chilly, but not too bad & nobody was out on the roads yet. I am so much to be thankful for, but being able to run is one thing I treasure the most. I PR’d on this run & finally got in a sub 12 min mile!!!!
122 Cynthea Wilson 39 I ran with my friend Jennifer! We had a great time and actually ended up doing 4.3 miles instead of just 3.1! We started working together in March and realized we share our “love-hate” relationship with running! We love to hate it and hate to love it! We have run a half marathon together and will be doing another in December. What a great virtual race and a way to acknowledge how awesome runners are, no matter the pace!!!

143 Shelley Reese 41 I ran alone at dusk. I ran for myself because this was the first time ive been able to run since i pulled a ligament at a race 3 weeks ago. I chose a nice up and back route on a busy road, so I could watch everyone come and go for election voting. The scenery was nice, relaxing and busy. I loved that I could run at a pace where I felt comfortable, while helping out a charity along the way. The distance was a challenge because I was working out an injury but it went way better then I expected. The weather was amazing for an Ohio fall day in November.
