Suzanne Allaire is a co-leader of the November Project Philly, the fitness movement with free workouts at the Art Museum and, now, Franklin Field. So her feed is chockfull of fitness-flash-mob goodness, and tons of fun race photos.
Sure, some of the posts are promotional in nature—Real Food Works is a business, after all—but lots of the photos of drool-worthy eats include recipes for you to make them at home. And that's why we keep them on our short list.
