To characterize the onset age for specific same sex sexual behaviors within a homogeneous population of homosexual men, questionnaires were distributed to men attending a monthly meeting of a Chicago gay men's social/professional organization.

Granbury, Texas
I lost a kidney and have just recently found a path to take because a Doctor took the time to listen and realized I was not a hypochondriac or a big overly sensitive, stressed, depressed woman. (yes, lots of justified sarcasm). I was athletic, very lean and continued to stay fit by enjoying bike rides and playing recreational co-ed softball. However, when I started a family at 25, I had...

Well I started running in March of 2007 because one of my daughters asked if I would like to run a 5K race with her in Hopkiton Mass.in June.

My name is Kathleen and growing up I was never what you would call an overweight child but certainly had some extra love handles that I didnâ??t love as a young girl and on into my early teens and 20â??s.

I’ve been a runner for as long as I can remember. Even in Kindergarten, I remember challenging anyone who was up for it to race me in the school yard during recess and proudly styled myself “The Third Fastest Girl in School” (I did allow that my friends Jana and Wendy were faster.) Our PE teachers did a running unit every January that pretty much consisted of having us...

On December 31, 2010 I did something I never do: I made a New Years resolution. I blame the steady flow of bubbling conversation and champagne, but before I knew it, I had resolved to run the 2011 ING NYC Marathon. I was obviously still intoxicated two days later, when I entered the race lottery. Then, for three months, I pretended nothing happened. Some time in March 2011, the following...

Chic Runner Patient Expert

Long Beach, California
Welcome to the Chic Runner! I named my site that because I think it’s okay to look fabulous when working out and working out makes you look fabulous! It just kind of grew from there. My real name is Danica and I fall in the category of “twenty something”. I fell in love with running when I joined my junior high cross-country team, but I also ran track and played soccer and...
