Happy Labor Day Monday! I hope everyone is having a great long weekend! I would love to share your stories, accomplishments or anything else you would like to share, please send them to barb.meely@steeplechasers.org.

One thing that members might not know is that all the Steeplechasers positions are 100% voluntary, so make sure you thank those special people who donate their time. This week’s amazing member spotlight is on one of our fabulous half marathon coaches, Amanda Berry.

“I have been running since 2011 and joined FSRC in 2016. I have completed 13 Half Marathons and 1 Full Marathon. I feel the best part of group running is the opportunity to connect with other runners and to provide support and encouragement. The role of the group is invaluable when attaining running goals — and it makes the process so much more fun! When not running, I work as a Library Associate Generalist at the Walkersville Branch of the Frederick County Public Library. I live in New Market with my husband and three children.”
