How To Fall In Love With Winter Running

January 17, 2017
Hey readers, thanks for having me over here at Lean Girls Club! My name is Megan–I run a blog called Run Like a Grl and also blog over at Cal-EZ. And I’m here to talk a little bit about winter running. For some, just seeing those two words next to each other in a sentence sends a chill down their spine. Yet, others love the quiet and the coolness of hitting the pavement outside during the winter…but how do these people do it?! Winter can be cold, windy, and dark, but that doesn’t mean you have to hide out indoors on the treadmill. There are ways you, too, can learn to love this cold time of year, and I’m here to try to convince you that the winter is one of the best times of year to run outside!

December 21, 2016
The holiday season is filled with lots of reasons to celebrate. It was an epic year for me: I got married, brought home a puppy, starred in a Dove commercial, ran my fifth NYC Marathon, traveled all over the world, remained healthy, and more. I partnered with Drizly to find a way to celebrate. I decided to host my own get together with some loved ones to celebrate an early Christmas and our 6-month wedding anniversary. The holiday season can be overwhelming with the abundance of office parties, get-togethers, and dinners but I couldn’t leave town to meet my real family without celebrating with my NYC family. I’m no Martha Stewart, but one of the main benefits of hosting is that I can to control what we eat and drink. I found these cocktail recipes on Drizly to complement our brunch-style fare, and modified them to make them low-calorie. Winter...
