Make sure you click on the button to take a looksie at all the goodies that were sent and received across the country (and Canada! and the UK!). This month I sent a box to Di at The Life of Di, so head on over to her blog to find out about her loot! Kristina, a reader who lives near Boston and is training for the NYC marathon (!!!) sent me a wonderful box. I told her I loved receiving local foods, and I’m not real picky as I like to try it all. Well, she picked out some local fare and it certainly did not disappoint!
I can’t wait to use the Wild Maine Blueberry spread (the jar claims to be “wicked good!”) and have so many ideas for it already. Pancakes, oatmeal, sandwiches, oh the possibilities are endless! The applesauce is made from New England McIntosh Apples which has a wonderful taste. The honey is absolutely perfect because I have been in need of more honey, but haven’t gotten any yet. Now I have a whole pound!
Kettle Corn? Pretty sure Jonny and I had no problem polishing this off in way less time than we should have! It was good and we enjoyed the sweet treat. Thanks, Kristina! Best of luck in the NYC Marathon!
All the details for Foodie Penpals can be found HERE. Itz open to readers and bloggers alike, and I would highly encourage you to get involved. Itz super simple – you get paired up with someone random (from your country), have a $15 spending limit, send them goodies, and receive an awesome box from someone else!

There is one person and one person only who most definitely deserves today’s high-five. This person is not only a dear friend to me, but an unbelievable athlete, and an inspiring blogger, fitness instructor, and woman.
Annette of Enjoy Your Healthy Life just completed her first HALF IRONMAN! Not only that, she did it all (70.3 miles!) in less than seven hours! Read her full recap HERE. Annette, you never cease to amaze me, and this is no different. You are [in your own words] thebombdotcom. xoxo Now move back to St. Louis? #wishfulthinking
Do you know anyone who has ever done an Ironman – half or full? What’s the longest distance you’ve swam/biked/run? Mine is 13.1 miles during the seven half-marathons I’ve run – I can’t imagine running a half after swimming and biking crazy distances, too!
