  2. Hi Heather,
    I just started following your blog. I was born and raised in Fairfax, VA and currently live in South Florida. I started running about a year and a half ago and did the MCM last October and am signed up to do it again this year. I love reading about all of the cool races and places in your area!

    Hello. My name is Soo. I;m running Gar marathon next month… but i can’t find direction i live in VA.. I called them serveral times no answer back.. by searching internet i find you… is there any direction info?? like addresss

    this is what they posted.. i don’t have no idea how to drive… without address..
    Please help me…

    Location: Carderock Recreation Area (not Park), Carderock, MD.

    Directions: Take the Capital Beltway (I-495), to the Clara Barton Parkway headed west, outside the beltway. Make a right on the first exit which is for both Carderock and the Naval Surface Warfare Center (Carderock Division). Turn left at the stop sign at the top of the ramp to cross the parkway. After passing under the canal, turn right and proceed to the third parking area on the left. Note: We normally hold races at the parking lot that is the first after you make the right, but continue onward to the end of the road.

    my email is

    Thank you!

      Hi Soo,
      It’s been years since I’ve done that race, but the directions they provided are probably the best guidance. Once you’re on the Clara Barton Parkway, there should be signs for the Recreation Area.

  8. Hello!

    I was wondering if you know anything about a Masters in Public Health being that you are a RD. I am planning on starting my Masters in Public Health in the fall but i have been worried that there will not be a wide variety of jobs once I finish. Do you think you could give me a better idea of job opportunities that are available for this area of work? I looked into becoming an RD but my bachelors degree is in Psychology. Thank you so much for your help!

      I was animal science and pre-vet in undergrad. I just got my MPH. There are a variety of careers out there!! I believe with an MPH you will have a competitive edge particularly if you think you want to work with a governmental organization.

    I was recently accepted into a coordinated program in dietetics. I am very excited! There seems to be so much variability in this field. I was wondering if you could give me some more insight in terms of salary as well as your position as a dietician in marketing. Did you have previous marketing experience?

    Hi Heather,

    I came across your blog and it’s great! I have worked in the corporate wellness business in the past and am looking to get back into that field of work. I currently am a clinical dietitian. How did you get into corporate wellness as a dietitian? Do you have any advice for others trying to do the same?
