Ready for 26.2!

I can’t believe that in just two short days I’ll be running the Marine Corps Marathon, my third full marathon! On one hand, it seems like I’ve been training FOREVER… but on the other hand it kind of crept up on me. I’m excited but also nervous… it’s been nearly 3 years since I’ve done a full and they are such a different beast from half marathons. Continue Reading …

Home Again!

Hey guys! I got back to DC last night after my travels in the beautiful Pacific Northwest! In case you missed it, here are the recaps: adventures in the other Washington + hiking Mt. St. Helens (<—intense but so cool). After saying goodbye to Matt on Monday morning, the rest of my time out west was spent on a press trip with fellow dietitians Continue Reading …

Why You Should Eat More Seafood

As you guys already know, I am a huge fan of seafood. In addition to being extremely nutritious, fish can also make dinner really quick and easy, which is why I'm excited to be celebrating National Seafood Month this October through a partnership with Dish on Fish! Dish on Fish is an initiative from the National Fisheries Institute to encourage Continue Reading …

Hiking Mount St. Helens

On Sunday, Matt, my brother Steve, some of my brother’s friends, and I all hiked Mount St. Helens in Washington State!

You guys know I’m not one to pass up an adventure, so even Continue Reading …

My brother lives in Tacoma so Matt and I decided to fly out on Friday and spend the weekend with him before my trip begins! Matt flys home this Continue Reading …

Eats/Exercise + Seattle Bound

Hey guys! It’s been a busy week making sure I’m all caught up on work before leaving town again today (see what I’m up to at the end of the post)! After being so exhausted at my track workout on Tuesday I’ve stuck with yoga the rest of the week – I hit up another yoga class yesterday morning rather than doing a run, which felt wonderful. Just what Continue Reading …

FNCE 2016 Recap

Hey guys! I’m back to share my recap from FNCE, the huge annual conference for Registered Dietitians around the country. As in previous years, I attended the event as press, which meant I received free registration for the conference in exchange for writing about it. If you also have a blog or are a journalist and would like to attend FNCE as Continue Reading …

Run, Yoga, Eat, Repeat

Hello, hello! Even though the weather randomly feels a bit more like summer than fall this week, we’re still enjoying some soup. Anyone else? Matt made a variation of my Veggie-tastic Minestrone Soup (<—recipe) for us last week – so good. It was even more delicious because we used homemade broth! Matt made the broth from the bones of a Continue Reading …
