Do you struggle with staying motivated and positive while running? Do you wish your runs were easier and more enjoyable? A guided running meditation may be just what you need to experience the joy of running again!

There are many benefits of meditation and
now you can easily do it while running!

Guided Running Meditation

When you practice running and meditation, you will become more in tune with your body and how your body moves. As your body awareness increases, your risk of injury decreases, your running form improves, and your mind will become stronger to help you overcome obstacles.

You will lose your fear of pain resulting in less tension in your body -- less of the tension that creates injuries and stress.

As your mind becomes stronger, you will be more prepared to deal with the physical challenges of running. You will become a stronger and happier injury free runner!

Pumpkin Hummus

As it is pumpkin season, I thought I would share this recipe with you that I tried recently and brought to a BBQ. It was a big hit and a great way to use up leftover Baked Pumpkin (link to recipe I shared in a previous newsletter).

Pumpkin Hummus


  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups of baked pumpkin or 1 can (15oz)
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp ceyanne pepper


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and whiz until smooth and well blended. Note: You can use a blender, but it is more difficult and will take longer.
  2. Spoon into a serving bowl and sprinkle with paprika (if desired). Serve with tortilla chips or crackers.
