About Women’s Running

In the May issue of Women’s Running, we are fast and FIERCE. We uncover 15 ways that running can make you more powerful, physically and mentally, and we’ve put them to the test. We also investigate the controversial topic of disordered eating and running: what are the warning signs to look out for in ourselves and others, and how we can support people who show symptoms of this harrowing and broad reaching mental illness that is unhappily prevalent in our community. We speak to journalist and author Bella Mackie on how she used running to manage the symptoms of her anxiety - so well, in fact, that she wrote a book about it. And we review tons of kit, including trail backpacks for days off the beaten track, some stunning neutral shoes, and fab all-weather jackets. Plus, we’ve got a training guide for a five-mile race, the ultimate marathon nutrition guide, and a lustworthy compo from Ultra - win three pairs of shoes worth £360!
