Celebrating R&R on the NY Times Bestseller List

Tears are flowing! Rise & Run: Recipes, Rituals, and Runs to Fuel Your Day is an instant NY Times Bestseller. Three-peat for the Run Fast Eat Slow team!
Eight years ago over a home cooked meal, two long-time friends dreamed of writing a cookbook together someday. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that all 3 books would become NYT bestsellers. Now 3 books, 3 babies, and 17 marathons later Shalane and I will be reuniting in NYC to run the 50th NYC Marathon in celebration of health, friendship, and hard work. This is Shalane’s last stop in Project Eclipse so tears and champagne will be flowing at the finish line.

Podcasts and Interviews

Below is a list of the podcasts Shalane and I have been on where we talk about the inspiration behind Rise & Run and so much more. Give them a listen - there are a ton of tips sprinkled in each episode!


Shalane chats with Glennon Doyle and Abby Wambach about:
  1. How a marathon is an analogy for life: the danger of comparison, the ride of emotions and self-doubt, that love is fuel, and that the world needs both runners and cheerers.
  2. The question Abby kept asking herself throughout the race—and why she’s still wearing her marathon medal while doing the dishes and running errands.
  3. Why race day was so profound to Glennon— even though she is strongly committed to NOT running—and how she experienced her first sports injury while cheering.
  4. A special visit by the kids’ middle school cross-country coach, Coach Loux, who became Abby’s marathon coach—and what she said at the 24-mile mark that shifted everything for Abby.
  5. A conversation with marathon champion Shalane Flanagan about the bond and joy of running—and how she played a magical part of Abby’s marathon day.
