Totally didn’t take enough pictures, so I stole some great instagrammers’ shots! 😉 What a great view - the hills were killer, but now I can say that I ran over the Golden Gate Bridge! Recovery is in the cards for me now, (rest and yoga,) and then off to break in my new shoes (Cumulus again) and looking for a few good late-spring halves!

My baby got real running shoes. Now it just has to stop raining so we can go out!

Nobody’s home? Guacamole quinoa for one, thank you.

My awesome new smoothie maker (Chanukah present to ourselves!)  Kicks my old nutri-bullet’s butt in the ice-crushing department and cost $70 less.  Today’s special: Chocolate protein powder, almond milk, and a handful of mint leaves. Yum! (Totally why I run…)

If you run, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doesn’t matter if today is your first day or if you’ve been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.

Does McDonald’s Belong in a Children’s Hospital?

The children’s hospital where I work recently announced it will be getting rid of its onsite McDonald’s. The restaurant will be out by the end of the year. It joins a long line of hospitals that have ejected their golden arches, including Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The Cleveland Clinic once tried to do so, but couldn’t get out of its contract.
Why would a hospital seek to evict McDonald’s from its premises?
In a nation confronting epidemics of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, healthcare facilities do not want to encourage fast-food eating patterns. No hospital wants to “send the wrong message.” A 2006 study showed that people who see a McDonald’s in a hospital tend to rate its food as healthier. Perhaps its mere presence smacks of endorsement.
