Three Things for Thursday, including a Giveaway

This week went really fast, I forgot what day it was when I woke up.....but it's Thursday, and this is what I'm thinking:

1. Now that my marathon plan is set, I need to start researching training plans. I've been looking at one from Dean Karnazes, but I'm not sure.

2. my training run on Saturday is 7.5 miles, on the second part of the Goat course. The hills are "steep but quick." okaaaayyyy.......

3. New Giveaway! Ever had Vitalicious Vita-Tops? They're all about guilt free indulging. The tops have zero preservatives or artificial anything, with 6g of fiber, 3g of protein, and 8g of whole grains. And only 100 calories.

Some of you guys (like you Julie) who live in the Midwest (IA, IL, IN, KS, MI, MN, MO, OH,WI), can get Deep Chocolate VitaTops (12-pack) at Costco for the next 4 -6 weeks. But if you've never had them, I just so happen to have a 12-pack of the Deep Chocolate to give away!


To enter, leave me a comment saying what time of day you think you would eat your Vita Top.

And for additional entries (please leave a comment for each):
1. follow me or tell me you do so
2. spread the word, via your blog, twitter, or facebook, and tell me you did so.

This giveaway ends April 15th at midnight.

mmmmmm........chocolate (cue the Homer Simpson drool).

Vita-tops sound great and for me, would be a super mid-morning or evening snack, maybe with some coffee or tea!

OMG a colleague at work eats these every morning and I always forget to get them at Tops (cause I go to and love Wegmans)

Breakfast is the definite answer!

Proud to call myself a follower!

ajh said...

Just laughed at your comment. I will be taking a photo for a future header but there are no runners with me. One woman runs occasionally but says I go too early. I can use the self timer but may have to "stage" a run later in the day when others are sun bathing (which I don't do.) I will sit and read all covered up! I am going to go post your giveaway. Forgot to do it last time!

mudmama said...

Mmm, I have seen them in the grocery store, but didn;t realize they were guilt free! I think I'd eat mine in the morning. Unless it was chocolate and then it would probably be a nighttime snack with tea.
You know I am following ya, babe! :)
Good for you on your marathon training-woo hoo! My sis-in-law wants to come do the one here in Nashville next April with my hubby.

Running Diva Mom said...

I have seen these in so many of my Weight Watchers magazines and have always wanted to try them .. mmmm ... would love them! Have you tried Natural Ovens cookies? Those are really good, too.

HI Molly... glad I found you blog. Became a follower today and I don't know about you, but is there really a bad time to eat these? :) Morning, noon or night for me!

Xenia said...

I just heard about these recently and they're looking darn tasty, I'd love to try them! I foresee them being my breakfast food because how can you go wrong with chocolate for breakfast?
