Every year I set goals for myself... and although I find that putting it in writing makes a goal real, sometimes I'm too hard on myself when I don't hit them. So instead I'm going to write down ideas... some may really be goals, maybe they're just wishes and dreams... for what may come in… Continue reading My Ideas, Goals and Dreams for 2019
Although we planned our trip to Ludington around running a race, no girls' trip would be complete without enjoying some delicious food at local eateries! Going to unique to the area restaurants is one of my favorite things about going out of town. I love experiencing what locations have to offer through their food. And… Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday: Ludington Girls Trip Edition
It has been a while since I have made a "What I Ate Wednesday" post. Lately I've whined about how my diet isn't helping me and I need to eat better, blah blah blah. So last week I tried really hard to eat food made at home, eat more fruits and vegetables, and drink water… Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday: A Week of Your RD on the Run’s Eats!

Last year… Continue reading Race Recap: Canadian Lakes 5k 2016
Every year in June, the hospital that I work for puts on a 5k/10k race.

When I signed up for the race this year,… Continue reading Race Recap: 2016 Bee Healthy for Life 10k
One of my closest friends is also a runner and a dietitian like I am. She recently moved to the west side of the state, going from 20 minutes away from me to 2 hours away. I have definitely missed my sushi and wine loving running buddy! So when she was down to run the… Continue reading Race Recap: 5/3rd River Bank Run 5k
I will be honest. The first time that I tried overnight oats, I was not impressed. I really wanted to like them because I knew that I could make a batch and have breakfast for a few days, which is huge for someone who likes to sleep in like I do! I don't remember what… Continue reading Tried It Tuesday: Overnight Oatmeal
If you eat bread and you are like me, you have probably eaten the same type of bread for years and years. You find something that you like and you stick with it. I think I especially do this with bread because it can be a food filled with lots of empty calories. Although when I… Continue reading Stuff I Love: Brownberry Double Fiber Bread
Well guys, I reached my goal! I ran a race every month during 2015.

My December race was the Bay Area Runners Club (BARC) Christmas 5k. This… Continue reading Race Recap: BARC Christmas 5k
Hello friends. It sure has been a while. I have been really busy - in the beginning of October, I stood up in my best friend's wedding.

My friends and family are wondering who I am, and what did I do with the "real" Megan, because I have started getting up at 4:30 in the morning... for BOOT CAMP. I started a boot camp workout class on Wednesday, and even on my days off from I am getting up no later than… Continue reading Race Recap: Run For Your Heart 5k
My last training run before the Crim was a tough 8.4 mile route up at my parents' place. When I got home from the run, I said to my parents, "I really hope adrenaline kicks in during the race because that was really rough." For the rest of the day I felt crappy. I had… Continue reading Race Recap: The Crim 10 Mile 2015
Well guys, I have really been slacking. I have been slacking on my miles and I have been slacking on my posts! So much has happened in the last few months... a few of my friends and family have gotten engaged, pregnancies have been announced, my best friend moved to another state, and another friend… Continue reading Banking the Miles 2015: May Update
I wanted to run in a race every month this year, but between schedule conflicts and budget constraints, I wasn't able to register for a race in March. I was determined, though, to run a race.
