A Visit to Earth Fare

Yesterday I visited Earth Fare, which bills itself as a "healthy supermarket." There's a store in nearby Brier Creek, so I was eager to see how it compared to Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, which I've been to recently. I found a few goodies at Earth Fare, including some Westbrae Natural Stoneground Mustard with no salt added (woohoo!) and some Eden's Organic Beans (with no salt added) in cans, and a book called The Runner's Yoga Book, which I'm going to order online. But all in all, I found Earth Fare's prices to be more expensive (especially compared to Trader Joe's), and the staff not as friendly as at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.

Bill and I started taking yoga a few weeks back. The class has been good, and I can tell that my calves are not as sore on my morning run if I go to yoga the night before.

There is a great lady at Carrboro Yoga Company named Sage Rountree who is a runner and triathlete. She teaches a class on Mondays called Yoga for Athletes. When we finish our current class, we are going to try to take her class. She also recently published a book on yoga for athletes, so check that one out, too!

What a coincidence! I saw the Yoga for Athletes book on Amazon and decided to order it instead of the Runner's Yoga Book! It looked really good, and had some nice reviews. Can't wait for it to get here! I didn't realize the author is local. :-D
