But the good news is, we’ve got some recipes to help make your transition to fast-paced fall life a bit smoother: Here, five healthy and totally drool-worthy meals that will only take up a short 10 minutes of your busy day. Happy cooking, Be Wellers!

Just curious. How far did you run today?
Five miles? Ten miles? Twelve miles?? I’ve heard from a few folks who covered impressively long distances, and one who even said she ran a half marathon. Before work. Today.

Brag away, my friends!
We’ve got a double whammy today, as far as fun events in Philly go. In addition to it being #RuntoWorkPHL Day, it’s also Park(ing) Day, a day in which parking spots around the city turn into pop-up green spaces.
This year, there are over 50 local businesses and nonprofits participating. The public is invited to enjoy the converted parking spots as places to catch some R&R.
This year marks the seventh for Park(ing) Day here in Philly. It’s a national movement that started in San Francisco in 2005. The mission: to raise awareness and support for green spaces in urban environments.
Check out the map below to learn where you can find a pop-up parking-space park near you.
You guys. I cannot even BELIEVE how many of you ran to work this morning for #RuntoWorkPHL. I’m literally sitting here just refreshing Twitter and Instagram, watching your photos and hilarious tweets roll in about what your commute was like. This is just incredible. You guys are blowing me away.
I’ve rounded up some of my favorites below, but as I type this, there are more and more rolling in every second, so this is in no way an exhaustive list. Go join the conversation on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #RuntoWorkPHL, and feel free to tag us in it. (We’re @bewellphilly on both platforms.) You can also go post them on the Facebook event page.
My new goal: to get the hashtag trending on Twitter. Let’s make it happen!
6ABC meteorologist and all-around super-star runner Cecily Tynan has given us the all clear—like, literally—for the weather tomorrow morning for Run to Work Day. “The weather is going to be perfect,” she says.
Back in May, we told you guys about a huge study out of Penn that showed, despite what previous research might’ve told us, red wine isn’t actually good for our cardiovascular health. Like, at all. Not even a little bit. (Insert emoji bawling hysterically here).
But that heartbreaking news (sorry—I just couldn’t resist) hasn’t stopped us Pennsylvanians from buying it: Recent data collected by Naked Wines shows that Pennsylvanians purchase red wine a whopping 60 percent of the time, and only opt for white wine a measly 30 percent of the time, The Washington Post reports.
