  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!

    Check out my blog at (I just started it)

    Keep posting, I really enjoy the info!

    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?


  12. Jessica

    Hi Heather – I’d love to send you an invite to a special dinner, please contact me. Thanks, Jessica

  13. Hi Heather,

    I LOVE the blog! You have so many great recipes that I can’t wait to try! I’m about to make the move to Denver, and I would love to meet up for lunch or coffee if you are up for it! I am a blogger from Athens, GA, and it would be a pleasure to pick your brain about blogging/ living healthy! Let me know :)

    Hi Heather,

    I am thinking about working with a registered dietitian in the DC area and was wondering if you could give me some advice. Do you happen work with clients on a one-on-one basis? Please let me know.

    Thank you,


  15. Brian

    Hi Heather, I live in Chicago area. I have played sports all my life and have started training for my first race. I’d like to lose quite a few pounds as well as make sure I am fueling for training properly. My main goal is finding an RD with experience training as a runner as well. Do you have any referrals in my area or even better, are you available for a few sessions virtually? Please drop me a note. Thanks!

  16. Michelle

    Hi, Heather.
    I came across your blog while looking for available jobs in the Corporate Wellness field. I would LOVE an opportunity to talk to you or reach you by email on a more private scale to maybe ask you a few questions / get your advice about finding a job in this or a nutrition-related marketing field – if you’re willing! I’m a registered dietitian in the DMV with a background in corporate communications as well. If you wouldn’t mind contacting me at the email address I provided, I’d really appreciate it very much. Thank you for your time!

  17. RE: Organic Revolution and ID Life


    I noticed in your contact comments that you review products you like! I became a rep for ID Life Nutrition after I found out that the “natural” supplements my husband and I were taking were full of hidden GMOs and other toxins. Once I dug in I found out that virtually every supplement product on the market- GNC, Centrum, Nature Made, One-A-Day- every single one- full of GMOs and toxins. It opened my eyes (and infuriated me) and I went in search of a company that produced supplements that are truly helping people. I found ID Life, did my research and was so floored by it that I became a representative. ID Life supplements are Organic, Non-GMO, Gluten-free and Casein-free. They are also personalized in the most specific sense of the word. Supplementation is recommended based on a full health assessment, with HIPPA laws in place, and the result is nutrition for you, and only you. It’s the most incredible thing of which I’ve ever been so proud to be a part. On a personal note: I don’t represent this company because I need to- my husband’s salary provides for our family. I represent this company because its products reflect my own values around putting good things into the world and into our bodies. If you would like to take the assessment, please visit my website: and I will happily pay for your first month of supplements if you decide you’d like to review it. Please feel free to email me with any questions at

    Thanks very much for reading, and for your wonderful blog : )

    Hi Heather!
    I found you via instagram (not really sure how) and decided to move to your blog, and I love your approach to health.

    I am in the middle of my dietetic internship in the Twin Cities and will be finishing my rotations middle of March.

    I was hoping I could pick your brain a little as you are an RD who is involved in the fitness/wellness side of things. I already know this is absolutley where I want to work as a dietitian, but it seems that it can be a hard little niche to get in to. Is there anything you would recommend for me to do to help me get my foot in the door with this aspect of the RD world?

    I’ve looked in to becoming a CSSD, and also possibly becoming personal training certified, is there anything you would recommend as far as certifications go?

    I know you’re super busy, so any advice, even brief, would be SO appreciative. Books/RD material I should read, places to look for employment, things I should be doing now…etc.
    Thanks so much!

    I just found your blog today. You sound awesome! Anyways, I am considering a career change to RD, and am particularly interested in consulting. I was wondering if you would be willing to walk me through what a standard day at work looks like for you? I would really appreciate it.

    Hi Heather!

    I love your blog/ Facebook page! I’m a new dietitian/ lifelong athlete currently working at a clinical dietitian in a hospital, but looking to write on the side. Do you ever consider contributing writers/ researchers to work on your posts/materials?


  21. Hope Kumor

    Hello Heather–

    I hope you’re doing well.

    I’m a freelance writer for Nadia Murdock Fitness and would love to interview you for a story I’m currently working on.

    I’m aware there’s a good and bad side of peanut butter, but I wish to dive more into it. Therefore, I’d love to send along some questions getting to the nut of the PB. Please let me know if you’re interested!

    Thanks so much! I look forward to hearing from you soon!
