Good morning all u wonderful women out there! I am not sure if there is a running club thread which is active in this forum. I tried to look it up and couldnt find one . I am passionate about running. Have been running for over a decade now. I live in sunny California . Running is probably one of the quickest ways to lose and maintain weight. (Ok OK I am biased) But I was wondering if there are more runners out there in IL who would like to share their tidbits..what motivates them..how they train for races. Diet that works . Newbies ..wanna be runners most welcome! I will share what I have learnt and we will motivate each other and I hope to enjoy my stay in this thread.
