Hands down the best part of this site is the videos--the question "Why Run? Why a Marathon?" is posed to various finishers after they've completed their race. Hearing their answers is such an incredible feeling, and makes me wish my full marathon was coming up sooner --it's in November!! Some of the reasons include awareness and donations for various charities, weight loss, fitness, and sanity. It's really an incredible way to spend some time and I think it may replace Chariots of Fire as the pre-race motivator of choice. (Don't worry, not abandoning it, just mixing it up a little!)

And now, a shameless plug for me. Put your sunglasses on, because glaring self-promotion is coming your way. Some people actually decided my ramblings might be worth something (haha, jokes on them!) and humored me long enough to post an article I wrote on their site. It's an article on Superfoods, but with a twist. Even though I love eating healthy foods and really care about nutrition, I'm getting a little sick of the constant barrage of articles in magazines and online claiming that this month there are "8 Miracle Foods" or "6 Fruits That Will Keep The Weight Off For Good!". This article is my attempt to navigate these lists and find the best foods for you without spending a fortune. Check it out if you have the time!
Ok, plug finished. Back to your regularly scheduled blog post.
If you've made it this far I'll reward you with two exciting things happening this week:
1) My first giveaway! I'm not ruining the surprise but let's just say you'll love it.
2) A blog post is in the works to show you my tried-and-true upper body workout you can do at home. Stay tuned!
If you could only pick one reason: Why do you run?
If there's only one reason...because it makes me happy. Everything else seems better once I've had a good run!
What is the one food you would consider your "Super Food"?
Picking one is tough but lately I would say it's been Greek Yogurt. It's my absolute favorite way to get my protein and it tastes amazing! I have to actually limit myself to one a day since it's a little pricey...
