In addition to placing sixth in the marathon at the Rio Olympics this year, Shalane Flanagan also published her first cookbook, The New York Times’ Bestseller Run Fast. Eat Slow. The four-time Olympian collaborated with chef, longtime friend and former college teammate Elyse Kopecky to share their knowledge of simple, healthy meals that have worked best for them and other athletes over the years. From more than 100 recipes in the book, we selected a nutritious soup and salad combo that’s perfect for winter.
