Last year, six employees of South Maple Elementary School in Gaylord, Michigan, decided to start a running club and get fit. The results?

“We have since lost a total of 125 pounds and run in two 5Ks and a 10K," says Kristy Somerville, 39.

"It helps all of us cope with stress. We run after work—after a hard day, its nice to get out there and get perspective again.”
