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, 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!

Blueberry, spinach & banana smoothie with plain full fat Greek yogurt, unsweetened almond milk, cinnamon, chia seeds and @biohmhealth super greens probiotics. Super tasty breakfast before I head outside later for a snowy river run! Check out my story (yes, I finally figured out how to create one haha!) for pics from last night’s super fun cooking event with @veggiesandchocolate @biohmhealth! Enjoy the snow day! Happy first day of spring - or in NYC, continuation of winter with yet another snow storm upon us 😩 Definitely calls for some hot chicken soup loaded with veggies! Beautiful recovery run in the ☀️ followed by a #meatlessmonday girls lunch! Salad with chickpeas, hemp seeds, feta, avo, greens and other veg with dressing for me & chickpea purée with tahini, olive oil and cooked spinach and zucchini for her (really tasty - would make an awesome dip). Plus fruit for dessert along with some chocolate for me! Enjoying breakfast with Arielle while watching the #NYChalf runners go by on the FDR! Eggs (+broccoli for her), avo, banana (try them all in one bite - so yummy) & 🍓 Stoked to hit 8M today! Thanks for a fun, beautiful run and for getting my butt outside bright and early @physeq! Been ages since I’ve baked and I had a little free time today, so I whipped up a batch of superhero muffins from the #runfasteatslow cookbook, with a few adjustments (half the maple syrup and chia seeds instead of walnuts, so my baby can eat them too). Love these muffins - packed with veggies, nutritionally balanced, and low in sugar too! Perfect afternoon snack with tea.
