MONDAY, APRIL 25, 2011

The Broad Street Run is less than one week away! To ensure Philly's 30,000 racers are prepped and ready to go, we talked to local running pros for a list of must-have gear that'll ensure those 10 miles are fun and pain-free. I'm also fessing up to how terribly my BSR training went this past week, as well as sharing my favorite weight-friendly wraps (fajita night, saved!), and filling you in on why acai berry weight-loss ads are totally bogus. Plus: Recipes for cancer-fighting kale chips, what it's like to go meatless with vegan star chef Christina Pirello and the Easter treat you should eat. The holiday may be over, but leftovers abound. Enjoy! Jenna Bergen, Health and Fitness Editor
