  • Rachel! You should have called me! I would have diagnosed you on the phone – you’re allergic to jogging.

    You’re welcome.

    • Rachel Schultz

      Thanks Christy :)

    So sorry you felt bad! That happened to me a few times last summer when I started running- maybe a combo of humidity/dehydration/not eating beforehand? I never knew why…

    • Rachel Schultz

      Interesting… good to know.

    Gosh, I sure hope you’re still doing well and seek a doctor’s opinion who could run some blood tests to see if there’s anything medically going on.
    Saying a prayer for you to feel better.
    Recipe looks yummy but I’d have to figure out a way o hide the veggies. The girls of ours are a challenge when it comes to veggies!

      Thanks Rhonda!
