I believe in science. When I was offered the opportunity to check out Dr. Susan Peirce Thompson’s new book Bright Line Eating: The Science of Living Happy, Thin and Free, I was intrigued. Peirce Thompson is a PhD in Brain and Cognitive Sciences and an expert in the psychology of eating. She is President of the Institute for Sustainable Weight Loss and CEO of Bright…

Good Times, Great Race & Some Exciting News

March 19, 2017 at 7:00 pm

I went to NYC this weekend to run my 6th NYC 1/2 in as many years. As I mentioned on Friday, it was my first real race of the year. I wasn’t sure what to expect time wise, but I knew that I would enjoy the run. It’s one of my favorite courses and I always see tons of friends. Plus, I’m supporting an amazing…

So Much More to See At Expo West – Day 2

March 14, 2017 at 6:11 am

After a jam packed Friday at Expo West, I barely scratched the surface of the show. I spent Friday night (with my feet elevated) making a detailed plan of attack. I wanted to check out all of the “Hot Products” exhibits at the Marriott and Hilton because they closed on Saturday. Elizabeth invited me to a 5K fun run with Nuun and Health Warrior.¬†She told…

Lucky Me! Back at Natural Products Expo West

Love The Body You’re In – Embrace (Yourself)

February 26, 2017 at 8:19 am

As a runner, I’ve had plenty of scrutiny on my body. When I was in high school, an off-handed comment made by a track coach led to decades of disorder eating and poor body image. What was it? I placed very well in a cross country meet and another coach said “she’s kind of big for a runner.” My coach responded “she beat everyone on…

Tried It Tuesday: ZeroWater Filtration Pitcher

February 21, 2017 at 6:13 am

We’ve had the same filtered water pitcher since we moved to Chicago. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve gotten new filters, but we haven’t upped our game at all. I’m doing whatever I can to have a healthier ’17, so when I was offered the opportunity to try ZeroWater’s new pour through water filtration system, I said “YES!” ZeroWater’s filtration system combines five technologies to remove…
