MY VEGAN ESSENTIALS FROM TRADER JOE'S

What was life before Trader Joe’s? I honestly can’t remember.

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. Between living in Boston and now in Brooklyn, I’ve spent a lot of winters running outdoors. And I’ll be honest, it does help with my winter blues to get outside. After awhile, 35 degrees seems warm. Kinda.
