The traditional Woodstock 5K and kid’s run rolls around again on Aug. 2, and competitors in the various age categories are increasing their mileage and conditioning for speed and endurance. The Anniston Runners Club has always conducted this race with the intent that all who run can be a winner.
The Anniston Runners Club not only is a group that trains, runs and competes but also encourages others to take on this healthy lifestyle as well. My daughter Lori became acquainted with the members during the glory years of running in the 1980s. It was with the club’s support and encouragement that kept her running back-to-back races every weekend.
