Trail running and physiology

Yay!  Functional Female is LIVE and I could not be more excited!!!  I'm cooking up some serious trail-running, human body-understanding ideas over here.  A few months ago, I started writing for Trail Sisters, an online community of Women Who Run, and from that has grown my branch of the tree, Functional Female.  This is a place to discover what makes us tick physiologically (all the chemical and hormonal pathways) and on a more spiritual and emotional plane.  Join me on this adventure, and ready your body, mind and spirit to tackle your Nature Bucket List!

Here is an article from today's NBC News about how nature heals.

I'm also linking to one of the first articles I wrote about WHY it feels so good to exercise out in nature versus home or gym.
