New and upcoming! travel, clean eating and half marathons

Wow! Life has been a whirlwind this fall and I’m sure you can agree. School is back in session, and then school is in quarantine…. and then school is back in session! Between planning and packing school lunches, getting ready for holiday travels and of course, getting my running miles in, it’s been a busy season! I wanted to give you a glance into the Half marathons, clean eating and what’s new and upcoming here on We Run the States.

New and Upcoming: Travel

With the covid vaccine readily available, travel has become a part of our daily lives again. This summer our family traveled to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone, which reignited our passion for nature and exploring. This sparked a spur of the moment trip to Zion National park in September for a half marathon through the night. I had never really had Zion on my list of places I wanted to see, but after seeing it’s beauty, I Highly recommend the adventure. Waking up at 3 am to run through the night jumping over boulders gave a definite runner’s high!

October has been spent Triathlon training for a trip to the California coast on Halloween. I highly anticipate that Bay Area swim will be frigid cold, so wish me luck that I don’t freeze! Then just two weeks later we travel to the sunny Hilton Head island of South Carolina. This will be my first in-person half marathon as a Bibrave ambassador, and I am so excited to meet other Bibrave pro’s that I continue to follow on my instagram running community.

The new year is just around the corner and Holidays are coming up fast! I plan to take a short break from running at the end of November and then jump right back into training for Rock N’ Roll New Orleans, LA half marathon in February.

Clean Eating

I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this category. Moreso, how can I make Clean Eating easy to prep for school nights and busy lives. I’ve debated recreating recipes like those amazing food blogs online, as I usually tweek most recipes, (just a little) to suit our family needs. But recreating recipes didn’t seem to make much sense as that requires a LOT of time and those amazing food blogs have already put in the work. (I know, much to your surprise, I also have limited time with full time work, kids, running and blogging). So this category will be a guide to Clean eating recipes.

I love creating weekly meal plans and food prep with my kids on Sundays. So here I will share with you all the recipes. Although most of the recipes I make are from cookbooks, I can often find the same recipe in an online version to share. If all else fails, you’ll get a picture screenshot of a clean eating recipe. It’ll be like we’re food prepping together 🙂

New and upcoming: Running

I am super proud to say, I am officially a Road Runner Club of America COACH! (RRCA) I decided to take my running knowledge to the next level and completed a weekend experience to become a coach. I have SO much great information to share with you to improve your race pace and achieve your set goals! The first athlete I’m training is my very own brother-in-law preparing for his first Full marathon in May. We are training for a sub 4 hour marathon and he is ready for the commitment to log miles!

Also new to the Running category is We Run the States, LLC. Yep that’s right, WRS is officially a business! Currently I am working on a really big project to have health insurance pay for you to run all 50 states! I’ll definitely keep you posted.
