Blue Paper Clip - for Women Running!

 

"Take the first step in faith.  You don't have to see the whole staircase,  just take the first step."  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Hello, and welcome to my site. My name is Denise.  Many people have asked be about the reasoning behind the name for this site.  The Paper Clip is a metaphor for a woman's life.  Keeping things together!   At the same time we have to take care of ourselves.  Running is one of my ways of taking care of myself.  It's fun, adventurous and healthy.
