Run Fast, Eat Slow plus a bug in my eye!

I am 1.5 weeks post the Philadelphia Rock N Roll Half Marathon, back at running and training for the Rock n Roll Brooklyn Half Marathon and feeling good.  I owe you guys a race recap!  So psyched because I got a PR!  Special thanks to my best running friend Lauren.

I’m trying to tackle harder runs and incorporate more hills, which is pretty easy to do where I live.  Sunday I ran a pretty fast 8 miler with miles 2-3 being an uphill climb.  It felt amazing and it was definitely a runners high kind of day.

Today felt like this though…


Today I went out to tackle 6 hilly miles with a loooong and steep downhill at miles 4-5 and a bug flew in my eye at mile 1!  Ugh!  That bothered me for some time. I feel proud, I only had to walk for less than 1 minute.  

I also am beyond psyched because this gem of a cookbook was delivered today!  I heard about it on both the runners world podcast and the run like a mother podcast.  I can’t wait to try out some of these recipes.   I am going to try another recipe from Thug Kitchen tonight, a Beer Lime Cauliflower taco.  I’ll blog about that later.


Can’t wait to dive into this and share some family favorites.

Run Happy y’all!
