FOOD COMBINING 101

Oh hey guys! So today I want to share something that I’ve been using for a while to help keep my digestion 100: FOOD COMBINING. Let’s backtrack a second and talk about digestion.

Winter Running Essentials

I hate running in the cold. Like seriously hate it. Too bad for me, I live in the Northeast and like to run spring races. So I gotta get my buns outside.

How To Run In The Heat

So summer is finally here and I AM SO EXCITED. I love running in the heat. There's nothing better then feeling the sun and not have to spend 15 minutes looking for your other glove. Maybe it has something to do with spending the first 23 years of my life in hot and humid Florida, or it's PTSD from the soul killing Boston winters. Either way, bring on the heat.
