    After moving to Martha’s Vineyard, not only has Boston become our gateway city to travels, but also the city we escape to before and after our busy summer season. Today, I’m sharing how Stonyfield is cheering on the Boston Marathon this year! 


    After attending my first Bruins game, I realized just how strong the Boston community is. It might seem like an odd moment to realize the city’s tenacity, but the energy at a Boston game, whether it’s the Red Sox, the Celtics, the Patriots, or the Bruins – it’s an energy you can feel in your heart. The camaraderie and loyalty, between the players themselves and the fan, is noticeable.

    And this year, Stonyfield is sponsoring the Boston Marathon, another famous Boston activity. The ways Stonyfield is sponsoring the marathon this year:

    • They’re sending 10 runners who just missed the cut off due to this year’s large amount of sign ups
    • They’re handing out hundreds of thousands of cups of organic yogurt on race day – to runners, their families, volunteers, etc
    • They’re giving away a bunch of healthy living themed prizes including a year long gym membership on the day of the marathon – simply tweet or instagram #StonyfieldSuperFan

    How Stonyfield Greek helps me fuel MY daily marathon

    Our lives are divided into two season: the off-season (October through April) and the summer season (May through September). That’s how life is on Martha’s Vineyard and all of Cape Cod – crazy. During the winter is when I get basically all my freelance work done, as well as a whole lot of recipe testing. I start my day with fresh fruit, local honey, and a dollop of Stonyfield. Simple, quick.

    During the summer season, I need an extra push, so Stonyfield is what packs my morning smoothie before I go into the restaurant. Yogurt, flaxseeds, milk, frozen fruit, chia seeds…they all come into play in making a huge smoothie glass that I’ll slurp on the way to work and during my first 15 minutes of prep in the kitchen. It gets me going more than coffee because with the hot weather and kitchen environment, that smoothie is what refreshes my morning!

    “Like the members of Team Stonyfield, we felt compelled to participate in this year’s race to show our deep love and support for the city of Boston and New England community. We’re so proud of our inspiring team and are excited to be working with the Boston Athletic Association to make this year’s race a celebration of Boston’s tremendous spirit and resiliency.” – Gary Hirsherg, Stonyfield co-founder
