I've been a fan of Tia and Tamera Mowry since their Sister Sister days, despite the annoying taunting I used to receive due to our shared curly girl hair do's when I was younger. It's been really nice to see both of their careers progress as well as their personal lives - I've been able to grow with them and now they both are wives and mothers just like me, so that makes them even more relatable. Tia looks fantastic as the cover women on the latest edition on Women's Running Magazine and her interview inside is very insightful....
