Gluten Free Pre- and Post- Race Snacks

Gluten Free Racing

This year, I decided to invite my extended family to participate in the Naperville Turkey Trot, an annual 5k race the morning of Thanksgiving!
Bright and early, I rallied with 4 of my favorite family members and headed to the starting line. Two of my siblings, Daniel and Kirsten, breezed through the race, which also happened to be their first! **Proud sister moment**
