Free Entree

Kashi, one of my favorite makers of healthy frozen foods, is offering a great coupon this month. Go to http://www.kashi.com/ for your coupon for a free entree.

Talk about runner's gaffes. This was funny. I was on the treadmill at the gym keeping a nice 6.8 mph pace. After 30 minutes I wanted water, but didn't want to slow down. It's not easy to pick up a nalgene bottle, take off the top, and drink while running. I thought I could do it but was proven wrong when I spilled water down my front and dropped the top of the bottle. It hit the belt of the treadmill, ricocheted into he window, bounced off and hit the guy on the treadmill next to me. He let out a little scream, but overall took it pretty well. Lesson learned - either bring a bottle with a straw, slow down or refrain from drinking.

  1. Oh no! :) It can be very tricky to drink on a treadmill. I am a slow runner, so I usually don't have much trouble. :)

  2. Oops! Luckily you didn't knock him off the treadmill.

  3. Giggling at your story-- the wide Nalgene mouth isn't very practical in motion, is it? Thanks for the Kashi link-- I haven't tried their entrees but love their other products, so this looks like a great opportunity!

  4. Funny story! I am laughing, just picturing it happening. I suppose you will be looking for a new water bottle now.

  5. It'd be so funny if he fell....

    Well, funny, hypothetically speaking.

    I'm glad no one did, though.... cause that'd suck!

  8. Ow! In hindsight, that's pretty funny. I've found my Camelback bottle works really well on the treadmill. It's got that sippy straw thing that you bite on and suck. You don't even have to tip the bottle, so your eyes never leave the space in front of you, thereby reducing the chance you'll trip or stumble!
