Get in Shape for Summer (and Life): Hungry Runner Style

yoga-on-beach

I have a confession to make.

So you know how I talk a lot about body image and how weight loss shouldn’t be the sole focus of our fitness mission?

Constantly having that message floating around in my brain and constantly writing about it started to make me feel like it would never be OK for weight loss to be a part of my own goals again.

If I’m telling you not to worry about losing weight, then what business do I have trying to lose weight?

But if I’m being honest, and I always will be here, weight loss—or actually, I should say fat loss—is absolutely a part of my goal right now. Read More

Famous, Fluffy Banana-Raisin Oatmeal

*Editor’s Note: This post was originally published on February 11, 2013. You are reading an updated version that more accurately reflects Hungry Runner standards. However, the recipe has not been altered in any way. Enjoy your oatmeal, Hungry Readers! 

Here it is. The moment you’ve all been waiting for.

OK, I’m exaggerating a little. Not all of you have been waiting. Or at least you just didn’t know that you were waiting for this.

But if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know that this has been a highly requested recipe, and it’s been a long time coming.

When I first started blogging, almost every morning I would post a photo of my breakfast on Instagram. Almost every morning it consisted of a big, gratuitously-topped bowl or jar of oatmeal. Almost every morning, at least one follower would leave a comment asking me for the recipe. Read More

Re-IGNITING My Love for Running: PUMA Ignite Review

puma-ignite-running-sneakers

Believe it or not, my longest run since racing the 2014 NYC Marathon in November only took place this past weekend.

On Saturday I ran 5 miles (to and over the Brooklyn Bridge then back) and even though it was super windy ( almost just as windy as it had been on the day of the marathon), I was instantly reminded of everything I love about both distance running and running in NYC.

Part of this was thanks to my new PUMA Ignite sneakers. I’ve been running in them over the past few weeks, but I’ll get to those in a minute, though, because first I have a few other updates to fill you in on. Read More

Easy Dinner Recipe: Lemon Pesto Penne

lemon-pesto-pasta

To me, lemon pesto penne sounds like an intricate and complicated recipe.

But thanks to Lindsay at Pinch of Yum, my preconceived notions were immediately shattered when I came across her recipe, which is brilliantly labeled “20-Minute Lemon Pesto Penne.”

If it weren’t for that “20-minute” clause in the title, I may have never attempted this recipe just based on the fact that it would have required more work than I was willing to put in at the time. Read More
