THE BRONX - Before News 12's Jessica Cunnington takes on this year's New York City Marathon, she's getting some inspiration from a local running group for women.

The ladies of Latinas in Motion is an organization which encourages and prepares women to participate in various running events. The group, that offers 24-hour support, aims to inspire women through group runs as well as its Facebook page where they post daily runs and workouts, as well as motivational quotes.

Latinas in Motion welcomed Cunnington, who usually runs alone, to join their group and get inspired by all the strong women who are looking to make healthy changes in their lives.

Many of the women who run with Latinas in Motion say they utilize the sessions not only for fitness, but for therapy as well.
