It is all about moderation...

Upon my arrival home this afternoon, I was greeted with a mysterious box by my front door. Kick off shoes. Throw purse on the floor. Tear open box.



Hershey's Chocolates via My Blog Spark sent me a box of treats to promote their Moderation Nation campaign. It is a pretty clever idea (Lord knows, CR enjoyed receiving a bag of Hershey Kisses in the mail...). The idea behind the campaign is to educate people that they don't have to deprive themselves to lead healthy, active lifestyles. Moderation, not deprivation is the key. Check out their site for links and suggestions on menus and activities that help you find your balance.



In other news...

Do any of you read Frayed Laces? She is racing the Ironman World Championship in Kona on October 9th. Absolutely incredible and inspiring, you have to check out her blog! Anyhow, she had a link on her website for a great deal on GU. If purchase any GU product through their website, you get a FREE 6 pack of their new Island Nectars flavor. The 6-pack normally sells for $15 so if you need to stock up on GU anyhow, now would be a great time. Order your GU products here.



and finally....

Atlanta has kicked Fall into high gear! I took a day off yesterday and the weather was glorious! I spent the morning on a 5 mile run and then headed over to the tennis courts to take part in a tennis fundraiser for the Komen 3 Day Breast Cancer walk. I think the temperature was in the low 60s for my run and a high of 70 for the day. WOO HOO - no more high temperature torture training runs!

This is a fallback weekend for me on the marathon training schedule. I am going to soak up some awesome fall weather with lots of tennis in the plans. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Wow! Chocolate in the mail. Who could ask for a better surprise?

That's so great on the Susan Komen fundraiser.

Speaking of new Gu flavors... I just bought some watermelon Chomps that I'm looking forward to trying.

Nice chocolate surprise!

one of the best packages ever! nice! the problem with that moderation theory is when i get a bag of chocolates they don't seem to want to wait around on me ;)

glad your temps have cooled off too - we deserved it, dang it!

What a nice surprise to get. I totally agree with the moderation thing. I run so that once a week I can completely pig out on Mexican food. Not exactly a fine example of moderation... but it keeps me happy.

I'll love fallback weeks. Just can't seem to force myself to take them though.

Fall back weeks are the best

Oh cool! I'm in Atlanta too! Love the fall temps we're having right now. :)

And that's such a great initiative with the moderation as part of healthy living. Definitely something I try to live by.
