Chobani Greek Yogurt Giveaway, Week 4

The other day I purchased plane tickets to fly to Minneapolis over Columbus Day weekend to visit my sister and her family. By then there will be a new little girl in the family and I'm going to meet her! I fly on Saturday and my Mom will arrive on Sunday to stay for the week and help out around the house. My sister and brother-in-law have a cute little boy who is almost too smart for our good and very active!

When Woody and I visited them in July of last year, I got to enjoy a run on a great trail near their house. The Minneapolis area is filled with great opportunities for outdoor sports and my hope is that my Mom and I can steal my nephew away for a couple hours, at least one day while I'm there, and go for a walk on the trail. I loved how it winded through little communities, woods and past lakes. We don't have scenery like that here in NYC! I'm definitely looking forward to this trip (and for more reasons than going for walks!).

This morning I went for a 5 mile run and wore my new shoes out for the first time. The Revenna are definitely much lighter than the Asics Nimbus I've been wearing for months now. There is less padding, which is what I wanted, but I have to get used to feeling the road a lot more. I did like how I was better able to recognize and alter my foot strike since there was less padding in the heel. It was easier to get a mid-foot strike. I feel like I'm spending a lot of time paying attention to how my feet hit the ground now and the rest of my form. I don't mind though, it can only help! There were a lot of other runners out. It always gets like this though, as the marathon approaches! Overall, I had a great run and it is a beautiful morning!

Okay, so as the title of this post says, it is that time of week again! I'm giving away two coupons for a free 6oz Chobani Greek Yogurt! Seriously, how can you not enter this giveaway? Well, I guess if you're a vegan or strict vegetarian, yogurt may not be all that appealing, but everyone else should enter! Two free yogurts for just answering a question!

While I am still following my 'dairy-free experiment' I do often remember my morning yogurt messes with fondness. But, not only is Greek yogurt great with granola and fruit, it's awesome if you put it in the freezer for a little bit to harden and you end up with a cup of incredibly healthy frozen yogurt!

This week's question is a two-parter in honor of Fall:
Do you follow college football? If so, what team do you root for and what is the biggest game of the year?

The prize is two of these:


The rules: only one entry per person, per week. You must answer the question(s) posed the day of the entry. Because the coupons don't specify they are only allowed in the US, anyone can enter (as long as you know they'll be accepted in your country). You must be willing to provide me with your address so I can send them to you and you must be willing to try Greek yogurt! Contest ends TONIGHT at MIDNIGHT! Winner will be announced in tomorrow's 5 for Friday post.

Good Luck!

I don't follow college football but it's on constantly at our house so I guess I do somewhat indirectly. My husband has always been a Notre Dame fan.

No college football around here. I'm not big on watching team sports and I went to an Ivy League college. Not exactly known for great football teams ...

Go Tigers! (Auburn University)

Biggest game is the Iron Bowl (this year on Nov. 26th) against Alabama.

War Eagle!

I am an NFL follower. Didn't go grow up in a region with big college football.

I have just discovered Chobani and love it! Never thought of freezing it.

I don't follow college sports but hubby most certainly does! Although who he roots for seems to be all over the board.

I don't follow but DH is for Buckeyes.

Man you sure got a lot of these coupons! I'll play again but you don't have to pick me if you don't want :)

I'm a Clemson Tiger! Biggest game is the rivalry - vs Univ of South Carolina (the "fake" USC) on thanksgiving weekend.

I don't follow college football, but I rarely say no to tailgate parties :)

Thank you so much for the warm NYC welcome!

After reading your About Me, I am very VERY impressed at how far you've pushed during race training and at everything you've accomplished so far in life. You are really inspiring!

I love the FL gators and our biggest rivalry is probably Georgia. Thank you for the giveaway!
