This group will have a very casual low-key approach to running and training. As a still-new runner of less than a year, I realize that running can be very intimidating to many women. I started this group to lessen that intimidation factor for those who would like to try running, but who have always been intimidated by those whippet-lean people you've seen hustling past.
Why the focus on women? I've wanted, for a long time, to have an ongoing relationship with a women's group of some sort. But none of the pre-existing groups felt quite right for me. So I created Carbondale Women Run to fill a void of my own and to reach out to others!
