Wednesday night runs and Saturday morning runs are usually with one or two of the Running Chicks.

hi aa. yup i did read that week 9 comment last week. hmmmm. i'm starting to wonder if different methods work best for different people? one thing for sure, chi-r has been miraculous on my shin splints, particularly keeping the lower body limp and not push off stuff...so i'm going to keep with those principles for now. what do you think? see ya!
