(Having Dr. Neal Barnard sign my book-sorry about the poor quality picture from the uploaded from the phone)

April has been such a hectic month and it seems like my blog has taken the back burner.  So many things have happened that I want to blog about, I just haven't had enough time.  I ran a 5K in Asheville at the beginning of April and then walked a 1/2 marathon at the Outer Banks the following weekend.  Then I traveled to Dallas to visit my best friend and then to Oklahoma to visit my family.  Lots of stuff!

Last night, R and I went to a Charlotte Barnes and Noble to hear Dr. Neal Barnard speak.  He's an amazing vegan!  He has written so many books and has inspired me so much.  Here's a link to some of the amazing books he's written:

Dr. Neal Barnard's books

After his lecture, he did a Q&A and then a book signing.  We have two of his books so we brought both of them.  R had him sign the newest book and then I had him sign his cookbook that he published last year.  I couldn't even speak to him!  I was so starstruck!  He's such a hero of mine!  That's something I really need to work on.  :)

It was great getting to see him in person and hear him talk about healthy veganism.

I plan to get back to blogging more regularly very soon.  I hope to have pictures up of my 5K, the 1/2 marathon and other things.  Until then, have a great week!


  1. Ohhhh I love Dr. Barnard! He's from the DC-area too, so I have had the opportunity to hear him speak a few times. He's so positive and full of great information!

  2. Wow, such neat things you've been up to, Katy! Congrats on your 5k and 1/2 marathon. Love the picture; I can totally relate to being starstruck when meeting authors!

  3. How cool to meet him! I'm jealous. :-)
