Five Fun Things Friday

Kovas and I were sent some organic herbal Alvita teas to sample.  So many delicious flavors - perfect for any time of day!

We make sure that every ingredient comes from responsible growers who make the land—and the herbs that grow on it—their primary concern. From there, our team painstakingly reviews the scientific data to make sure of proper dosage, and the perfect brewing techniques, so that our teas can give you the maximum benefit and the best taste.

We also had the opportunity to try Huma Chia Energy Gel in strawberry and apples and cinnamon flavors.  I love that these are all natural and have a great flavor without a chemically after-taste!

Don't like gels that taste like cough syrup? Neither do we. Now you can enjoy your gel with Hüma, the great-tasting, all-natural energy gel based on Chia.

You can have the best running shoes with the right fit, but without good socks, you're likely to still have problems.  I have a pair of Darn Tough ski socks and love them, so I was psyched when they sent me two pairs of their running socks to try.  Super comfortable with a great fit and feel, no rubbing and no slipping - these have become my go-to socks for running!

...miles and miles (and miles) of blister-free bliss. Feel the difference of feeling nothing at all.

Here's a great event to support virtually or in person if you're in the Chicago-land area...Tazer and I are planning to register for the event - the rest of the family will join virtually...

The Run for Boston 5k is a partnership between the Chicago Running Bloggers community and Muddy Monk Trail Running. Katie of Live Half Full worked to bring together the running community to put together an event to show the power and resiliency of the running community.

Together, our goal is to raise funds from our generous sponsors so that 100 percent of race entries benefits the Who Says I Can’t Foundation and directly to support the rehabilitation of those who lost limbs as a result of the terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon. We need your help to make this possible. Contact us for information about volunteering or sponsoring this event.

Join us June 15, either in Libertyville at Independence Grove or virtually, for #Chicago4Boston.

  1. Some running, gardening, and the Blackhawks game tomorrow, kind of a quiet weekend actually. :)

  2. Too many plans this weekend! Skating, Lupus walk, water safety course, neighborhood BBQ, maybe even a race if I lose my mind. Enjoy!
