Teen Success Stories
I feel stronger than I did before, and I can run a lot better than I did.
No, I could barely run the mile in my P.E. class at school.
I didn't participate in school sports because I felt awkward running and I didn't want anyone to see me. After joining the running group and seeing all the woman of all shapes and sizes run, it really inspired me. I do plan on continuing to run.
It's hard to stay focused on being healthy when I have friends who can eat whatever they want, and there are so many temptations out there. But I like to feel good and I like being able to wear cuter clothes when I'm healthier.

Yes, I would tell them what a great experience it was, and how good I felt after I finished running.
