She has outdone herself this year!"


Sharon has been a loyal High Ridge YMCA member for several years and has participated in a number of classes and events at High Ridge Y. Over the past few years Sharon has focused her energy in Race/Walks and has set goals for herself each year. Amazingly enought Sharon has surpassed her goals this year Here is what she had to tell us:

"My original goal was to complete 17 races for the year 2017. When I complete my last race of the year—Renegade Santa Race 10k in Irvine CA that number will be 30! One of those races included a 100 mile virtual bike ride which I completed at the Y."

Here’s the breakdown of the 30 races:




1-1/2 Marathon


1-5 miler

1-10 miler

 7 virtual races

"My favorite races were: 1) Rock n Roll half marathon in Vegas 2) 8k Shamrock Shuffle and 3) Stan’s Donut 5k. Here’s the breakdown of the 30 races: 13-5k’s, 2-8k’s, 3-10k’s, 1-1/2 marathon, 1-15k, 1-5 miler,1-10 miler and 7 virtual races. I may not do 30 Races next year but I have already signed up for 8 so far!"

Great Job Sharon! Keep up the great work, We are rooting for your continued success!
