Let's go Krogering ... GIVEAWAY TIME!

     
CR and I have been eating cleanly lately which means we haven't been keeping a lot of processed snacks in the house.  Which also means that OF COURSE when I am asked to bring food to my weekly tennis matches it is almost always something I don't have on hand like chips or a dessert.  It is a long standing tennis tradition in Atlanta that the team hosting the match provide food so every player is assigned something to bring.  While I have my own views on what I want to feed myself, I don't like to push my ideas on others so if they ask me to bring cake, I bring cake...  I am not a rebel.  I am certainly not opposed to a treat once in a while so cake it is!  Twist my arm....   :)

Tennis is my dose of reality.  It is so easy to get caught up in the triathlon world to the point that you forget that most of the population does not Swim, Bike and Run all week.  I am definitely the "oddball" on the team. "Wait you are going to swim how far - and then you are going to ride your bike?"  LOL.  Actually, it is only funny because I remember thinking THE EXACT SAME THING about the triathletes in my masters swim class 10 years ago.  Who are these crazy people headed out for a run after swim practice?  Was the swim not enough for them?  Back then I was rolling through the Wendy's drive through after practice and thinking nothing of it while they were probably munching on veggies and hummus.  My how things have changed....

Anyhow, as luck would have it just as Summer tennis is starting up Kroger is having a stock up sale!  You know I will be stocking up on team snacks for all those matches :)   If you have a Kroger near you, from June 2nd – 8th, if you buy 5 participating General Mills products in the same shopping trip you will get a coupon to save $5 on your next visit to Kroger. Look for special tags on participating products. For more details on this savings event, please visit www.kroger.com.

What is even better is that Kroger and General Mills have hooked me up with a $25 gift card to give away to one of you!  Leave me a comment below, make sure you include your email address and I will draw a winner at random on Thursday, May 30th.  Good luck!



The information and prize pack have been provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark.

Hi! I just started following your blog recently. It's funny how quickly our points of reference can change. 5 years ago when I had just started running, I would never have thought that I'd be now getting ready to do my first triathlon in a month.

I used to shop at Kroger when I lived in Houston. Now I have Fred Meyer stores here in WA. They have the cheapest and best selection of Clif and Luna bars.

The Kroger nearby has the best selection of nut butters, which are my favorite way to refuel before a workout. I'm excited about the promotion!

Nice...

I still do the Wendy's thing though. Frosty's are totally good post work fuel - kind of like chocolate milk, but frozen. :)

I think I am DQ'd because we don't have Krogers here :( but if we did I'd scoop up some GM products in no time! Glad to hear the clean eating is still going well!

I live directly behind Krogers! I don't know who the manager is, but they always put out those Manager's Specials, and I go hunting for them. If I'm really lucky, I get the chocolate milk on one of those. :)

I think you've got my email address. Pick me! Pick me! :)
