Vegan marathon runner Ellen Jaffe Jones shares a recipe with permission from her new book, Vegan Fitness for Mortals, published by Book Publishing Company!  Ellen says, “To summarize my tips: Listen to your Body big time, Finish without injury. Don’t get the “terrible twos”–too much too soon, and you’re good to go.”

Ellen has also written Eat Vegan on $4 a Day, Kitchen Divided, and co-authored Paleo Vegan with Alan Roettinger.
