More than 1,300 women hit the pavement in Columbia Saturday morning to raise awareness for the number one killer of women – heart disease – in the 16th annual Lexington Medical Center Heart and Sole 5-Miler.
Runners of all levels – from the most competitive to complete beginners – met at Finlay Park to compete in a 5-mile run, 5-mile walk and 3-mile walk.
At the finish line, they were greeted with a finisher’s medal, water, roses and chocolate covered strawberries.
Shawanna White was the first to finish the 5-mile run. She said it was her third year running the women’s only race.
