It’s a new year! The Women’s Running January/February issue can help you start 2018 off on the right foot (pun intended). Our “Back to Basics” issue features everything you need to start your running season off of a strong foundation—from a four-week clean-eating plan and strength-training exercises to essential run gear and universal truths about how to run properly. On the cover is Dee Palagi, the winner of our 2018 Cover Runner Contest powered by Jaybird (she is wearing Nike women’s Dry Flash Element Top Half-Zip, Nike women’s Aroloft Vest, Adidas adizero Split Short and Adidas PureBOOST X All Terrain). You can read her powerful story, along with the stories of the other seven finalists, in the “Dare to Dream” feature inside.
With a new year has also come a little refresh of the magazine structure—throughout the issue you’ll see several new pages, which you’ll now see recurring every month. They include things like “Shoe of the Moment,” a page highlighting a sweet new run shoe; “Nutrition Notes,” a page of sports nutrition advice coming from a registered dietitian; and “Running at Every Age,” a page for profiling women runners in all different seasons of life. You’ll still find all the same nutrition, gear, training, injury prevention, racing and wellness advice that you’ve come to expect from Women’s Running magazine—just more of it!
Happy New Year!
