Happy Boston Marathon Monday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend and a great Easter with your family yesterday.
I spent some time being frustrated because it seems as though the Boston Marathon organizers have sold out and the only way to view the marathon is by logging into NBC Sports with a cable package account. Thanks for making the decision to choose money over everything else that this race is supposed to stand for.
I’m not bitter.
Anywho. This last week I’ve been dealing with a few aches and pains that have prohibited me from running and even held back my step count for a couple days. I broke a 14-day streak of 10K+ steps per day. I strained a muscle in my hip flexor and though I’m not 100% positive, I’m pretty sure it happened while I was doing yoga. Serves me right for trying to stretch out my stiff body. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to start running again in the next few days as the pain keeps subsiding.
If you’re currently dealing with an injury and something else that’s keeping you from running, here are a few ideas to keep you fit and going. Do what you can but don’t hurt yourself even more!

I’ve been trying to get more veggies into my diet because not only are they full of essential vitamins and minerals, they’re low calorie and very filling. If you could use some healthy eating inspiration, check out this list of ways you can eat more veggies.
