Book Review: ROAR How to Match Your Food and Fitness to Your Unique Female Physiology by S. T. Sims

I wanted to lift up this book because I think that there are probably other women out there who, like me, want to improve their fitness but aren't sure where to begin. Diet and exercise have never come naturally to me, and I am grateful I found this well researched book to guide my training. This book is brimming with great information and I know I will refer to it again the next time I'm stuck in a training rut. I don't know if my next race time will improve, but I do know that I feel happier and healthier after reading this book and putting some of these ideas into practice.
