Your Body Knows Best

"The best advice I ever got was to listen to my body." –mariaandnick

How she found The Running Woman board: "Initially I found this board when I first started running, but I didn't post much. Then, I came back when I decided to run my first half marathon (with no training, by the way) in Spring 2009."

The best part of being a member: "I appreciate all the ladies and their honest feedback. I continue to post and have formed so many wonderful friendships during this last year."
