Announcements 


University of Wisconsin Survey
The University of Wisconsin Madison Neuromuscular Biomechanics Lab is conducting a survey regarding the running behaviors of women who have had children and we are requesting your participation. 

They are conducting this survey to find out more information regarding how pregnancy and child birth may have changed your running habits.   If you are a female who has had at least 1 child you may be eligible to participate. 

The following link will take you to questions that will ask you about exercise and running history before, during and following pregnancy.  We ask that you only complete this survey once.
    
The survey is completely anonymous and takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
