It’s the weekend, and you and your friends are trying to decide what restaurant to go to. You’re vegan so you of course love going out to places like Franchia, Peacefood Cafe and Buddha Boddai. However, you’re the only vegan one in your group of friends. Where can you go that will leave everyone satisfied?
This week I made my debut on the YouTube scene with my channel, RunningVeganNYC! It’s an extension of my Instagram and blog– still health/fitness stuff, but unscripted and off-the-cuff. I’ll be sharing vegan recipes and products, running/fitness tips, and probably a handful of random musings mixed in for good measure.
Two months ago, I wrote a blog post explaining my addiction to calorie counting. If you haven’t already, I recommend reading that first to give this one more context. I was still a devoted [closet] calorie counter at the time of the posting. However, I desperately wanted to stop because I knew it was doing me … More How I Stopped Calorie Counting
Before I head into NYC marathon training next month, I thought I’d give an update on what I’ve been up to post-half marathon, my current fitness level and routines, and goals for training.
It was surprisingly easy to be vegan in Guatemala. With countless fruit/smoothie bars and locally-sourced, health-conscious places, I was rarely stressed about finding something to eat.

This is a collection of the thoughts I jotted down in my phone during my recent week-long solo trip to Guatemala. In taxi from Guatemala City to Antigua (day one): The city looks super run-down Gas stations every few hundred meters (why?) There is a Walmart here, which makes me irrationally upset.
I finished my final week of BBG last Friday. Wahoo! It was basically three months of endless burpees, pushups and SWEAT! I’ve mentioned BBG (Bikini Body Guide) a few times on the blog, but for the unfamiliar, BBG is Australian personal trainer Kayla Itsine’s downloadable fitness guide. It’s a 12 week program, and each week … More BBG round one review
I moved to New York shortly after college graduation, in July 2015. It’s almost been a year, and before another year of incredible change passes me by, I want to take some time to reflect on the experiences of the past twelve months that come to the forefront of my mind.
Yesterday, May 21, I finished my third half marathon. With over 27,000 finishers, the Airbnb BK Half is the biggest half marathon in the US– it’s so popular that registration for spots sold out in 52 minutes this year. For me, this was a high-energy, fun, yet very painful one. Let’s get into, shall we?
I’ve dealt with injuries, mainly involving my knees, ever since I began running races. Every round of half or full marathon training has been marked by an injury at one point or another. It varies each time, too. Sometimes the pain is in my right knee, sometimes my left, sometimes only when sitting, other times only when … More Injuries: As much a part of running as the shoes
