Curried Red Lentil Mash-up with Sweet Potato and Cauliflower

OK, I have a confession to make. So, I named this blog Hungry Runner because I like food and I like running. Only, the thing is it turns out I like running and fitness and exercise, a tiny little bit more than I like food. (I just gasped. I can’t believe I said that.)

[4 Fast and Healthy Recipes]

When I first started this site on Tumblr, and before I discovered Instagram, I was constantly posting my daily meals as healthy inspiration and occasionally posting the recipes for my favorite dishes. (As seen above.)

Finding the Fun in Fitness with Reebok

[Glow in the dark yoga!]

Last week I was invited to the 2013 Reebok Women’s Lifestyle and Fitness event here in New York City. Reebok, fitness, fun exercise workshops… You know I didn’t have to think twice about what my RSVP would be.

The pain in my right hip started just after I ran the Fitness Magazine Half-Marathon. Three days after the race I went out for an 11-mile run and unfortunately that was just too much, too soon. After that I rested for about a week until I felt OK again. But even though I felt OK on my first run back, there were still some small twinges of pain, a sign that I wasn’t fully recovered. Stubbornly (just like last time), I chose to ignore that, simply because I love to run, and now, as a result, I can’t. Oh the irony.
