You’ve inspired me to consider running! I don’t like the gym scene so I feel kind of limited in what I can do living in the Midwest. I’ve started taking short walks with my baby and will gradually build up to longer walks. I’m 9 weeks postpartum and I don’t want to stress my body too much. One thing I have wondered about is the difference in body composition I see in runners. I have a friend who used to run 30 miles a week and still had a ‘thicker’ figure. Another friend is a runner who is very slim. Running doesn’t always seem to be a sure fire way to burn fat; the former friend carried most of it in her midsection as well.
