Succesful women and their fitness secrets

A question that I was asked,” Why do you want to run?” set me off thinking on the reasons. Here are my random musings on Why I run I’m searching for a word: a word that will describe why I want to run. It could be a three or four words or short sentence too. This(…)

Indian stressed women

Another party and another friend’s daughter getting divorced after a long separation. I see the parents of the young girl.
