0 Learn More About Running Hoosier Magazine
Below is a press release which I wrote about Running Hoosier magazine, for those who are interested in finding out more about the publication:
Who We Are:
Welcome to Running Hoosier Magazine! We're Indiana's only running magazine, and while we do feature the local running scene, our magazine is not just for runners, nor just for Hoosiers. We are also geared toward the entire fitness community.
Our publication is a refreshing, down-to-earth take on fitness and health-related topics for regular, everyday people. Running Hoosier will have something of interest and of use to all endurance, multi-sport athletes. We cover a diverse range of topics, including training, fitness, sports nutrition, health & healthy living, local runners and events, interviews, and other issues that we, as endurance athletes, face in our sports. Our magazine is for runners of all ages, shapes and sizes, and experience levels. So whether you are new to the sport or have run for years -- this publication is for you.
Our magazine team is composed of writers from all across the nation, with backgrounds in running, swimming, and cycling, etc.
We believe that there are many facets of fitness & well-being and will not shy from any of them. Three of them which are vitally important are the mental, physical and spiritual. Our magazine will provide useful information on all of these topics.
We at Running Hoosier magazine hope that you find our publication to be an invaluable resource for all your training needs.
