Sarah Illingworth | October 2, 2014 | Healthy Living
It's hard to own up to this stuff, but I want to make the point that having an eating disorder isn't some sort of win. It's isolating, exhausting -- they screw you physically and emotionally, and they siphon the joy out of life. And the joy out of the people closest to you. They suck.

Top 10 Nutrition Tips for Training

Keri Glassman | October 2, 2014 | Healthy Living
A big part of this running thing is mental, so be confident in the foods you use to fuel your feet. Stop thinking "diet" and start thinking "nutrition." You can certainly try someone else's running meal plan that appeals to you, but empower yourself to make it your own.
