WOMEN RUN MEMPHIS! Now that I have your attention, let me tell you about a program for women that'll improve your fitness and maybe a whole lot more!

It's called Women Run/Walk Memphis. It's a 10-week training program for walkers and beginning runners.

If you're a couch potato--here's a chance to get-on-up-and-get-going!

If you're already a runner at the intermediate or advanced level, this training will make you even better!

You can sign up online or at a Memphis Runners Track Club Expo from 5 to 7 Monday night, June 27th at the Agricenter.

You get 10 weeks of training for just $35 on Monday nights starting in July through early September.

The price goes up to $40 if you register after Monday.

Experts will teach you a proper training program for your current abilities, nutrition, hydration, selecting the proper shoes and clothing.

You'll learn about warming up, cooling down, stretching, and even enjoy a graduation ceremony with as many as 1,200 other women.

The improved fitness of hundreds of Mid-South women will make this a Better Mid-South.
