Let's join together in community, by running (or walking) apart on May 2. Choose between a 5k, 10k, 15k, or half marathon and participate as an individual or virtual team to challenge yourself and others to stay active over the next few weeks, and most importantly, for a good cause.
One Generation Away, a Franklin, TN based non-profit, is working to help those among us who need it most, especially during these trying times. With 50% of the profits from *shirts going to One Generation Away, you can help in their mission of Wiping Hunger Off the Face of America!
*Shirts are only available to order until April 19 and will arrive shortly after the race - so order yours today

**Training Scavenger Hunt Contest + Coffee Prize
Exercise might feel a bit rough for some of you right now so for a little extra motivation we are going to take you on a scavenger hunt during your training to help you find joy in the journey!
"A MOMENT IS ALL IT TAKES,
TO BRING A FRESH SMILE,
MAKE A GORGEOUS DAY,
OR REINFORCE A BEAUTIFUL LIFE."
~Craig Margolius, SYPCOFFEE Founder
SYPCOFFEE runs off the realization that every moment really does matter and they have so graciously offered to gift one bag of 'carefully roasted specialty coffee, beautifully packaged and personalized' to the winner of the scavenger hunt!
Throughout the next few weeks during your training runs/walks be on the lookout for something in each of these categories to help brighten your day:
Take a picture of as many of these items as you can during your training runs/walks and post your favorites (please just 1 per category) in the Facebook Event. Each category submitted for counts as 1 entry to the contest (up to 6 entries per person). On race day, one winner will be drawn from all of the entries and announced via Facebook!
When DOESN'T coffee help make your day better? If you aren't selected as the winner, maybe this could be your gift to yourself for finishing the race! ;)

I am a food loving, activity seeking health coach who resides in Franklin, TN with my husband and two sweet dogs (Lola & Penny).
I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
