3rd Place Finish at the Brooklyn Half Marathon

Happy Marvelous Monday! I hope you do not mind my lack of contact over the last week, but you can follow what I am up to through my #100happydays on Instagram! I will be back on Wednesday! Note: I wrote this on Saturday evening, my thoughts have changed a little, but I thought I should…

How to Use Strides to Run Faster

Today I would like to focus on one of the nemeses (yep, I really did just use Merriam- Webster to make sure that was the plural of the word) of marathon training; strides. In college, I loved doing strides. Okay, love may be a little strong, but I used to feel powerful and fast striding…

Strawberry Shortcake Oatmeal Pancakes

Good Morning! Happy Marvelous Monday! How was your weekend? I finally found some time to relax, and I even took a nap on Saturday! It truly was marvelous, and well needed! Sometimes I am such a hypocrite. I often tell my loved ones how much it frustrates me when people are stuck in their ways;…

The Importance of Keeping a Training Log

Runners, or athletes in general have many traits that are common among all, but there are also a few ways in which people can be complete opposites; whether you are interested in what races the Olympians are doing, where your Alma mater/school you work at is ranked in the National listings, where your time places…

Pulled Pork and Roasted Sweet Potato Pizza

, ,
Last week I was in heaven Bed Bath and Beyond, daydreaming about all the kitchen supplies I will someday be able to put on my registry, while shopping for a friends wedding present.  It brings butterflies to my stomach, thinking about the day I can go around and click whatever I want…..yes, I have heard…

Carrot Cake Protein Pancakes

Well, that’s another holiday gone for the year. Has anyone else noticed how fast this year is going? We are fast approaching May, and as excited as I am to finish my MBA next month, it is also starting to terrify me thinking about trying to find a job within the healthy eating/nutrition industry. If…

Black Bean Fudgy Cookies

,
As I am sure you know by now, I have a MAJOR sweet tooth, however, sweets (in the quantity I consume them anyway) are not great for maximizing performance. I am therefore constantly on the lookout for ways I can trick my sweet tooth into eating nutritious foods. As much as I love fruit, my…

Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Recap: The Race

I am sure you were too excited to sleep last night in anticipation of reading the second half of my recap, but as I care about you, I am going to put you out of your misery :p If you missed part one, you can learn all about how elite athletes are treated the day…

Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Recap: Racing As An Elite

I thought this would be a great post for you to see what life is like as an elite athlete. This was my first real experience as an expenses-paid-for “pro” athlete, and although it is in no way as glamorous as other sports, for me, it was one incredible experience that I would love to…

Mango and Sweet Potato Tacos

Last week, as Spring finally appeared to be here to stay, I decided I would make a dish that’s vibrancy (I think that is a word?!) would sum up the feelings of relief amongst most of us for the recognition that we survived the winter. I came up with this wonderfully bright meatless way of…

10 Reasons Running is for YOU!

Do you have a favorite place to go running, I do! I ran around my long run loop along the Schuylkill (I still have to look that word up every time!)River. A lot of people hate running there for various reasons, one of which is the congestion during the nice days. To me this is…

Salmon, Spinach, and Broccoli Risotto

, ,
Okay, I am going to share a secret with you. One of my favorite meals of all time. Actually, I am surprised I have not posted this before, but it is my go to dish when I want to make something I know will be good. We all know (well, foodies know), that risotto is…

Sweet Potato Stir Fry

,
When my mum asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I think she thought I was joking when the first thing I said was a julienne peeler *what has my daughter become?!*. It was one of my favorite presents…..until I came across Ali’s blog, and discovered the wondrous spiralizer!!! My julienne peeler seemed so weak…

Pear and Hazelnut Cinnamon Oatmeal

,
One thing being gluten free has done for me more than anything else, is expanded my breakfast horizons. I have tried many different breakfast options, rather than just having cereal every day……although it has made me miss it even more! I have made the Oh She Glows Peanut Butter Morning Oatmeal mutiple times, and I…

Cauliflower Crust Veggie Pizza

, ,
I am learning more and more that I am a bit of a sheep. I always thought I was independent; someone who doesn’t gave to peer pressure, does what she wants, but I keep hearing about how gluten free is the biggest “fad” of the moment. As today marks the end of my gluten free…

Slow Cooker Chilli

,
Depending on where you are in the country, you may be like us Philadelphians, under a deep (13 inches!) of snow with temperatures hovering around 2F (-15F with winchill!!!). On days like this, the perfect food to warm you up is a Chilli to bring some heat back into your body, and get that metabolism…

Is this the End?

This week I have taken a long ride into 2014 on the struggle bus. I was lucky enough to be presented with a cold….my first cold in a long time, so I was a bit of a baby. As I generally eat so healthy, I do not get sick very often….so when I do I…

Perseverance

In my training update a few weeks ago, I wrote about “the little voice”, which has talked to me a lot in the last month. Before you think I am going crazy, let me explain. Although this can be called different things; a gut feeling, your heart, a pit in your stomach; I think we…
