One of the themes that continues to come up in my health coaching are variations of the following quote from Geneen Roth:
It’s not about the food. But it’s not NOT about the food.
So true, isn’t it?
Our relationship to food and our body is connected to so many other aspects of our life.

Back to Monday and a new week… I think I’m ready for it after four days of holiday-ing, how about you?
We had a really good time and got to see both sides of the family in PA. I took a break from pretty much everything, which is so unlike me, but was really nice.

How was Thanksgiving? We got back last night after a great few days with family. I took an unplanned social media break. Holidays feel more like a holiday when I really step away from everything. I’ll give you a better warning next time.
Workouts this week included a little spontaneous test run [...]

As many of us head into large Thanksgiving meals this week, here are a few things to keep in mind for a healthier day and happier gut.
1) Be thankful!

2) Time it [...]

Happy Monday… and for my U.S. friends, the beginning of a very short week!
In addition to Thanksgiving this week, I’m also celebrating my blog’s two year blogiversary. I started this blog as an alternative place to share my race recaps, since no one reading my personal family blog really cared.

Hope you’re enjoying the weekend. We’re having new friends over today for lunch. They have a daughter L’s age, so she’s super excited!
My workout recaps are less interesting now that I’m not in marathon training mode, but I’m trying to mix things up and keep it interesting. I’ve been combining the elliptical, [...]

So, it’s been a little over 3 weeks since I’ve gone out for a run. And somehow, I’m not yet going crazy! I guess that’s a sign that my body really did need a break. But… I’m ready to get back out there.
So what’s next?
Back to running:
My sports doctor and I [...]

Thanks for celebrating my training with me this week in place of a race recap. A lot of you have been asking what’s next, so I’ll share the updates on Friday- how my shin is doing, what races are next on the calendar, etc.
But for today’s wiaw, I have an awesome, easy [...]

The Philly marathon was yesterday! Huge congrats to all of the runners out there!
I was disappointed to not be racing, so to bring closure to this cycle, I decided to celebrate my training instead of the race recap I was planning to write.
This training cycle has been stronger than my first two… here’s [...]

Just a quick post, checking in from Philly. It’s fun to be back (we lived here our first year of marriage!) and had a beautiful day yesterday to walk the city.
I popped into the expo to see some fellow runners and pick up my packet. It made me wish I was going [...]
