Women Runners Tell their Stories


Are you a lifelong runner? A mid-life novice? Are you a racer and medal-winner or a clear-your-head and mediator? Whatever running means to you, however fast or slow, "serious" or "casual", whether running is your obsession, your prayer, your escape, your promise to yourself or just the most fun you've had in forever, we want to hear from you!
