As a Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5K Ambassador, Publix gave me a $50 gift card to whip up a healthy delicious meal to share with my fellow runners. On top of that, Publix also generously gave me a $25 gift card to give away to one of my lucky followers. Congratulations to Jacy Vergara on being the lucky winner!
I swear the older you get, the busier your calendar becomes. My girlfriends, Claudia and Kristen, and I try and get together often to make juice. We’ve talked about trying to do it at least once a month, but you know...life. Luckily, we threw a date on the calendar and all of us were free (that doesn’t happen often).
There is something very comforting when you're gathered around friends and cooking. Conversations flow freely and we are all in the present moment. The glasses of wine probably help too :) The last time we got together to make juice, Claudia prepared us one of her awesome recipes - a Pesto + Mushroom Spaghetti Squash boats. This stuff is AMAZING! So, with compliments of Publix, we had a deja vu night and once again made juice and whipped up this recipe over wine and alcoholic kombucha (who knew this existed?). It’s a simple recipe and using fresh pesto is definitely the way to go! If you have friends to help you cook and clean, it makes it even easier!
Check out Claudia’s recipe for the Pesto + Mushroom Spaghetti Squash. We also added asparagus spears and freshly grated parmesan cheese. They added a nice touch!
For our freshly squeezed juice, we did one of our favorite concoctions consisting of the following fruits and veggies:

If you look up the idiom "on-the-run", it means to constantly travel or moving from place to place. Welcome to my life! I get asked the question - "Do you ever sleep?" at least once a week. The truth is - I am always on the run. My weeks are filled with work, training runs, dropping kids off to school and extra curricular activities, traveling out-of-town for races and soccer games, theatre rehearsals, civic duties - you name it. In addition to being an avid runner, I'm a happily married wife, mother of two, an actress, singer, a Fleet Feet CREW coach, and work full time as the Marketing Manager for Thomas & Hutton Engineering Co. I love being on the run!
