There are many conflicting messages about what to eat to feel healthier. So many, in fact, that most of us don’t even know what to eat any more. “Don’t give up,” says Kim Plessel, RDN, Oakdale ObGyn’s registered dietitian. “Instead, ground yourself in these time-honored, science-based universal truths.”
Sore throat, runny nose, and a headache that won’t quit? As a mom with a busy schedule, we're willing to guess that you weren't expecting these symptoms. Our friends at MedExpress have some important do’s and don’ts to remember when you’re feeling a little under the weather. Check out their blog.
The Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend, October 4-6, is fast approaching and has something for everyone. Sunday is the big day with the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon and Medtronic TC 10 Mile. And Saturday is filled with events for kids of all ages with the TC 5K, presented by Fredrikson & Byron, TC 10K, and Medtronic TC Family Events.
But before your big race day, check out the Health & Fitness Expo at the Saint Paul RiverCentre on Friday October 4 (11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.) and Saturday October 5 (10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.). At the Health & Fitness Expo, you can buy official 2019 Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon gear, visit over 100 exhibitors, listen to speakers at the Seminar Stage (presented by Star Tribune), pick up your race bib, and much more. If you are running the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon or the Medtronic TC 10 Mile on Sunday, you will need to stop by the Expo in order to get your race bib as there is no race day packet pick up available.
We partnered with our platinum sponsor, MedExpress Urgent Care, to create 250 first aid kits that were donated to PROP (People Reaching Out to People) food shelf in Eden Prairie, MN. Moms on the Run members who were at our Celebration Evening on Aug. 23 had the opportunity to put together a first aid kit and write a handwritten note of encouragement. We're grateful for all who participated! The kits were delivered on Sept. 6.
