I was just diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my lower back. I have been cooking my way through both the cookbooks anyway, and as part of my treatment plan I’ll be eating a lot more leafy greens and brightly colored veggies and fruits. The Can’t Beet Me Smoothie, Red Raspberry Beet Smoothie Bowl and Coconut Kale Smoothie are now diet staples – so delicious and healthy. Thank you!

For 2 years I have been training and trying to qualify for Boston. After 3 failed attempts I got it this weekend with a 10 min cushion even with the new standards and a 15 min PR!! Finishing in 3:30:31 I improved my diet using your books and ramped up my training plan. I also got wiser about picking my race. I love the can’t beat me smoothie and swear by it!! I like both versions but more often make the second books recipe. I tell everyone how great the recipes are and have a new love for sweet potatoes! 😁 Thank you for helping me run fast!!!

I have somehow survived three cancers. After each trip around the block with it, the first question I had for any doc was — when can I run? I was even allowed to run two weeks after my colon cancer surgery!

But it has all taken its toll. I, at 20 years as a survivor, have set the reset button and started running again. It’s wonderful and painful, all at the same time. And I love it!!! I’m slow. You have to take my old 5K times and multiply x2. But I’m out there. I can dream of a 5 minute mile…

As a 50 something, I’m even more inspired by Shalane and Elyse’s cookbook. Food is fuel. I used to run a race off a pop tart and cup of coffee. Now, I see how short sighted that was. It’s the one great thing cancer has taught me — what we eat matters.

I may not be up for marathons anymore, but I hope I can find a path to health and happiness. Running has long been how I first identified myself. Raised on a farm, I was a scrappy, tough kid. Everyone in the community would say, if you crossed that one, you had better run. And fast. So running was a part of me. I even ran track in high school on our boy’s team because we didn’t have a girl’s team. I never was counted, but I loved it.

I ran Boston in 2004 to celebrate five years cancer-free. I cried as I crossed the finish. I was diagnosed with a stage IV recurrence just two weeks later. I knew running something else was competing for my energy. It was a terrible 4:30 marathon. I had just run the Boulder Backroads Half in 2003 at 1:35.48.

So bringing back my victories of crossing over the finish line of 120 plus cancer races and countless local community races, I will run our local cancer race in March 2019 to celebrate my 20th, 15th and 6th years of cancer survival. I plan on having plenty of healthy fuel via Run Fast, Eat Slow to get me across many more finish lines.

Thanks, guys, for helping restore my faith in myself.

Thanks for these amazing books! I have 2 smart, strong, beautiful student athlete daughters. My oldest is a sophomore in college where she plays beach volleyball. My youngest is a junior in high school. She runs XC, track and plays lacrosse. My oldest daughter was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune blood disorder 10 months ago which has flipped our world upside down. Her being out of state for college has left me feeling so helpless. There is no cure, just hoping and praying her body will be strong and heal! Why I’m writing to you is, believe it or not, your recipes and cooking seems to be the only motivation I have. It has given me purpose for me to cook healthy amazing food for my other daughter. I feel like cooking out of your books is me doing something, contributing to strength and health, for my other daughter. To help with her xc season. It has given me some sense of control back in my life. Some days I’ll make 4 different things out of it. :). Thank you!

My daughter, Alison , & I have been making your recipes since summer of 2017! Alison is a junior in high school & runs cross country & track. Alison’s dream was to go to state this fall for cross country. She missed going to state by 1 spot!!!!!! She’s taking it really hard- but we are encouraging her to go for it again next year! Her birthday is also October 30th & it would mean so much to her to win this marathon giveaway from you guys! You two are her biggest role models!!!! Thank you ! And good luck Shalane with the NYC marathon coming up! We’ll be cheering for you!
