Holding on to those last days of summer weather? Check out the Women’s Running September 2017 issue to help you make the most of the great outdoors. The issue is packed with ideas for making the most of your time outside, including a round-up of cross-country races for adults, a training plan for incorporating hills into your training, and how hiking can improve your running. On the cover is the inspirational Mirna Valerio, the woman behind the Fat Girl Running blog, who within the issue writes about how nature inspires every aspect of her life. Within the issue, you’ll also find tips for making the back-to-school time of year easier, such as workouts you can do at the park or playground after you drop the older kids off at school, tactics for squeezing in workouts during the school year, and recipes and products to make packing lunches easier (and healthier!). The rest of the issue is packed full of nutrition, gear, training, injury prevention, racing and wellness advice to help you reach your running goals.
