We've reached day 26 of our Engine 2 eating, which has consisted of no meat, dairy, eggs, oil, and of course gluten! Days have looked similar to this:
I'm by no means going hungry these days! I'm learning to fuel my body with quinoa/brown rice and beans/lentils/legumes, and I'm loving it!
Another favorite I've discovered....
All of this good eating has been coupled with awesome training runs. Here's the week rundown so far:
Monday: 9 miles
Tuesday: 13 miles
Thursday: 14 miles
Friday: We'll see...today is going to be a two-a-day kind of day. I ran 9 miles this morning. We'll see what lunch brings. I'm hoping to have today count as my "long run" day, so I don't have to go long in the cold and fierce winds tomorrow.
All of this running, it is preparing my legs, my lungs, and my heart for my Run Free MN trip! Some mornings are harder to roll out of bed than others. I continue to remind myself that I'm running for reasons beyond myself. As I put on the layers, and lace up my kicks, I pray for the women who are being trafficked. As I drive to St. Paul to meet up with running buddies, I pray for a change of heart in the pimps organizing these trades. And during many of my runs, I pray for the men who continue to fund this slavery. And then I thank God that I am able to be a part of the solution. The hope story.

You too can be a part of the hope story!
