Why are More Women Running Half Marathons

Laura Clugston had started running for marathons soon after high school. She wanted to become healthier and deal with her changing emotions. Running can refresh your mind completely. Clugston’s friends supported her to increase her targeted distance and inspired her to run half marathon. She had participated in the Nike Women’s Half Marathon last year. This was her third half marathon.
