Vegan Eating

Vegan Eating

About 10 weeks ago I was looking for some healthy eating motivation when I came across the documentary What The Health on Netflix. I thought it would talk about everything I already knew like eating more vegetables and avoiding processed and artificial ingredients.

Hello! I know I’ve been a stranger lately, but I’m back! After my (very first!) half marathon at the Urban Cow Half, I took a little break from blogging. (You can read about my race here!) I also took a break from running for almost a week so there really wasn’t much to blog about …

Happy Sunday, everyone! In last week’s post, I let you all know that I’ve been taking control of my eating after slacking all summer.

Happy Sunday! I’m a few days behind on my weekly post so apologies! Things have been hectic in our household because the Germany move is coming up fast and we had a few appointments.

Back in the Saddle

Back in the Saddle

Ending week 2 and going into week 3 of half marathon training feels like a nice turn around! I was having increased shin pain last week (you can read about that here) which led to me taking 2 unscheduled rest days before my long run on Saturday. I wasn’t looking forward to doing 6 miles …
