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.

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.
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!
