Happy 2019 ladies!

    There are so many things that we, as women, focus on.  And most of the time I would say that we hardly ever focus on ourselves.  As women we worry about everyone else in our lives whether that be a spouse, children, work collegues, and often times our beloved furbabies.  

    It is also about this time of year when we make goals for the next year.  Goals l...

Weather: Perfect 65 degrees and slightly breezy

Hotel:  .5 miles to the race start and finish.  La Quinta Inn and Suites on Tamiami Trail

It has been my experience that CFWR gets the most new members in the months of January and February.   Whether you are new or a established runner- here are some things I feel every runner should know:
