STAFF PHOTO SAMANTHA BAKER • @NWASAMANTHA Kathryn Wishard, Bentonville/Rogers clinic director, talks to program participants earlier this week at Memorial Park in Bentonville during a pre-meeting for the Woman Can Run/Walk in Bentonville/Rogers. The Bentonville/Rogers clinic begins Monday.

Jennifer Kelley of Bella Vista had never run before. Two years ago, she decided that she "wanted to get in shape and live a better lifestyle."
