Happy Earth Day!

Ok, so I haven't been able to start running yet, but that's ok--my chosen profession (acting) is keeping me PLENTY active. I'm touring a show currently which keeps me on my feet and doing heavy lifting, not to mention running around like an animal for an hour:). I'm staying fit!

I just wanted to take a moment to review one of my favorite new products!

Primal Strips A+
Yum Yum Yum...these vegan jerky snacks are absolutely excellent. They provide a nice burst of protein--10 grams!--are low fat (2 grams) and are easily transported (important when you're on the go like me most hours of the day, seven days a week). Not only that, but I chose to review these in honor of Earth Day because they are packaged in biodegradable plastic! Healthy and compassionate for the bod, the planet, and animals. What more could you ask for?

Keep fighting the good fight!

Can't run the half-marathon because of my achilles tendons. The injury is too painful and once I am allowed to run, I'm only allowed to begin with one milers--clearly, with only 1 week before the race, that is impossible, especially if I want to avoid injuring myself further.

This is pretty disappointing, however! I refuse to let it get me down or set me back too far. Instead, I'm going to be diligent in my time off and work those muscle groups whose weakness helped cause the injury in the first place, so that I can come back better and stronger than ever!

Once I AM back on the road, I will begin another training program, with the goal being 13.1 miles again.

I know I can and will.
