Kait’s BACK to tell the story of her Chicago marathon experience. We’ve come full circle– she was on the pod a few months ago (episode #43) when she first started training, so I had her back on to recap the marathon.

I ran my second Airbnb Brooklyn Half last weekend. With 27,000 runners, it’s the biggest half marathon in the United States! I somehow managed to pull off a new PR AND negative splits. I recap it all (what I ate, how I felt at each section, what I did after), in this episode. Listen on … More #36: Running a Half Marathon PR (2017 Airbnb Brooklyn Half Recap)

We have an abundance of food options; when we walk down the aisle of a supermarket, there is a … More How “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” Made Me Reconsider The Way We Eat
I have now officially raced in two half marathons. Woohoo! The event was organized by Back on My Feet, a non-profit organization that uses running to help the homeless gain independence as its dedicated members get access to training, employment, and housing resources.
