Our food should be good for us and taste great, too, says Ali Lopez, a Michigan runner, chef and health coach who talks with Heather about tasty ways to fuel up smart and get the most out of your running. She shares her favorite go-to snacks and meals, including what she recommends pre-race as well as post-run.

Ali also shares her most recent marathon experience — this fall’s Grand Rapids Marathon — and her big accomplishment at this race (hint: she reached a long-held, somewhat elusive goal. Her dedication and perseverance is sure to inspire you and your own running, no matter your race goals.) Ali, who moved to Michigan about a year ago from the East Coast, also offers up simple, easy and convenient ways to enjoy great and healthy food that ultimately will help your running.
