"I joined RWM only a year ago when a girlfriend encouraged me to join her in the Beginning Runner Class that RWM hosts. The running community has been a godsend for me and has helped me though a really tough time personally. Thanks to my friend that got me started and thanks to RWM. I love my running buddies --- all new friends and I love the change that has taken place in my life."
