Hello and happy Friday!
I made a delish and super easy packed lunch earlier this week with the leftovers from my Kale & Chicken Quinoa Salad! I threw the leftovers in a tupperware:
Grabbed a Stonyfield Oikos to have with it:
And then for snacks, I packed an orange:
And two mini Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins!
I’ll share the recipe next week – they’re delicious and made with almond flour and coconut flour! I’m obviously not gluten free, but I just felt like experimenting with some fun different flours. I hadn’t baked in WAY too long.
In other completely unrelated news, I’m excited and very honored to share that my Twitter handle is featured in the December issue of one of my favorite magazines, Runner’s World! I’m dying to get my hands on a copy so I can see it in person, but friends have been sending photos and blogging about it so I borrowed a few pics from them.

There’s an article in the issue about social media and running, and they include some people to follow on Twitter, from elite athletes, to funny runners, to mommy runners.

One of the sections is runner “Foodies (or Drinkies),” which is where I’m featured, along with a few of my good blogger buddies!

Here’s a close up of my shout out that Meghann (who is also featured in the article) texted to me this morning.
Thanks, Runner’s World! Can’t wait to see the full article and follow some fun new running peeps! Who are your favorite runners to follow on Twitter?
And speaking of running… I just signed up for a Turkey Trot! I’ll be rocking out at the Alexandria, VA 5 Mile Turkey Trot – it’s an old favorite that I’ve done a couple times before in the past, but not for years. I’m excited to return to it and see how my pace has improved, and to work up an appetite for Thanksgiving, of course!
Are you running a turkey trot this year? Any other fun races on the docket? I’m also doing the Living Social Glow in the Dark 5k next weekend just for fun (they’re hooking me up with a press pass for the event), and I’m starting to look into late winter/early spring half marathons if you have any recommendations! I’m starting to feel the itch to train for something again…
