Hi friends! Happy Saturday.

Mike and I did something a little crazy this week…and signed up for another half marathon!! So I’ll be doing the NYC Half Marathon in March and then the Brooklyn Half Marathon in May. Perhaps a little over ambitious, but I think we can do it. So far I’ve run up to 9 miles in my training and that felt great. We have a bit of a crazy February between a conference I have to go to for a few days and my SIL’s wedding, so I’m trying to load up January with as many long runs as possible.¬†Obviously each run is different and you never know what will happen on race day, but my goal is to get to 10 or 11 miles in training so that I can feel more confident on the day of.

All this running requires lots of eating and cooking because this girl is STARVING in the days after a long run. Here’s what we’ve got on this week’s meal plan!

  • roasted butternut squash soup – looks so velvety smooth
  • quinoa fried rice – love takeout at home!
  • warm farro bowl with roasted vegetables – such a hearty grain bowl
  • spaghetti squash with roasted pecan pesto – yesssssss
  • broccoli cheese baked potatoes with tempeh bacon crumbs – all about this

Happy eating!
