Women’s Running is slowly but surely becoming our favorite magazine.
After making waves by featuring a plus-size model on its August 2015 cover, the magazine, which calls itself the largest for women runners, has done it again — this time, with plus-size blogger and model Nadia Aboulhosn.
Our April issue featuring the gorgeous @nadiaaboulhosn is on newsstands today! (: @alainmitchell/ &: @aaronpaulbeauty) There is a training plan, there are Fuel Up awards for our favorite runner fuels, there is a basic DIY barre workout, there is a ton of other stuffso there's every reason to grab it this morning. (Stay tuned when Nadia takes over our page today!) Read about our cover runner in the link in our profile! #teamwr #womensrunning #everybodyisarunner
