Happy Friday! Last weekend’s Ultra Trail du Hurricana 65km race was pretty epic, and I promise to give a full race report soon. For now, E and I are beyond pleased to have finished the race safely, under the cut off time (just barely!!), and in great spirits, crossing the finish line hand in hand in 10 hours and 51 minutes. Such a joyful moment!

I’m also very pleased to report that I did not fracture my wrist – I have a sprain (i.e. ligament tear) and thankfully no major ligaments involved, which means no surgery or cast. I got a new custom splint that allows for much greater mobility and with a little rest and then some therapy, I should be healed within 1-2 months hopefully!

In the meantime, here are some great tips on running form on Livestrong.com, including several from yours truly! 🙂 I contributed to this article a few weeks ago and it went live last night. It has some good info on improving efficiency and avoiding injury before, during and after your runs. Check it out!

Have a great weekend everyone! Happy running!

Last night’s dinner - made a big batch of farro mixed with sautéed mushrooms and TJ’s kale cashew pesto (love that stuff) and made a bowl with arugula, feta, avo and fried eggs (which I totally botched). So tasty and easy to throw together. Have a beautiful Saturday!
Chasing after this little one for an hour followed by breakfast al fresco to celebrate this beautiful Friday morning! We both enjoyed oatmeal with mashed banana, frozen wild blueberries, chia seeds, ground flax, PB and cinnamon (the liquid was a mix of milk and water) - made a big batch for three adult portions and three baby ones! Check out my stories for pics from last night’s Fall marathon @finishlinept event with @johnhonerkamp & @steve__finley. It was a fun, informative night!
#Tbt to all the incredible local organic berries we enjoyed while in Santa Cruz, CA. I know I can get great berries here in NYC too but they never taste as good as the just picked ones from home that we buy on the side of the road! // Worked out for the first time in nearly two weeks this morning - just a 30min easy run that felt way harder than it should’ve - but such a gorgeous morning to get out there. For any NYC folks training for a Fall marathon, catch me tonight talking all things running nutrition at the @finishlinept marathon kick off event at 7pm!
Hearty breakfast before a full day of clients! Two eggs, 1/2 avo, handful of arugula, and 1 cup of leftover quinoa mixed with veggies. Still fighting off this virus but slowly feeling slightly more human - can’t wait to get back to my workouts!
Hey there - remember me? I know, it’s been awhile! I decided to take an extended social media break during my June vacation, and since getting back to NYC a couple weeks ago have had the worst cold/flu thing that I can’t seem to shake. Being sick is no fun, but time away from the phone has been quite refreshing! I’m back online now, catching up with all my nutrition clients, and excited to share some pics from our incredible four days in Mendocino, CA. We stayed at the adorable Headlands Inn B&B (awesome breakfast in the room every day and fireplace at night 🔥) right in town and enjoyed so many beautiful coastal, beach and canyon trails for running and hiking, got some great wine tasting in on our way to town from Santa Cruz and back, and lots of R&R. It was the perfect way to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and get a much needed break from the daily grind of parenthood. Hope you are all staying cool in NYC today!!
Good morning from California! Going back off the grid for a few days as we begin our next mini adventure in Mendocino including more trail running of course, but first had to share some pics from our EPIC trail run/hike across the Haleakalā crater. This year, we parked further down the volcano and hitched a ride to the summit to do an amazing point to point trail. So much better than doing an out and back from the summit as we did two years ago. If you ever find yourself in Maui and enjoy the outdoors, checking out the crater is a MUST - even if you only hike a tiny bit along the sliding sands trail from the summit. You don’t need to do 12 miles as we did (although I highly recommend). The terrain is so unique - even having done most of the trail before, we were in awe the entire time. It’s so quiet and other worldly. These pics are totally unedited btw! Just make sure you prep well as it’s very exposed and weather varies - we took gels, tons of water, and PB&J sandwiches to fuel our 4 hr excursion. Have a great week everyone!
