Man, the weather was perfect! By the 8am start time of the 10k race the clouds were thinning and it was a festival atmosphere. Arena Fitness kicked off the event with a strong showing in the 10k! The sky was blue for the 9:30am 5k start, and the larger group of Arena Fitness contenders crushed the course! There were a whole bunch of impressive finishes, first-timers and experienced veterans, but the best part was seeing the camaraderie, teamwork, support and laughter. Everyone seemed to have a GREAT TIME!

Soups are a great way to eat healthy and feel full. This soup has a superfood (kale) AND protein (quinoa and chicken). You can add more veggies like zucchini or omit the animal protein to customize this soup to suit your taste. I made this for my boys this weekend and everyone loved it! Best of all? You can make this ahead of time and heat it up after your group fitness training class!
