Happy Halloween Everyone! I hope you are enjoying some great Fall running because we sure have! The Midwest has been providing some awesome weather to run in lately.

Last weekend started with a family run at our local running store called DNA Athletics.  If you got kids or grandkids, go grab them and take them running because it is FUN!

FRIDAY– Running with the Kid!

So I picked up Lil David from day care and we came to my house to fuel up and change into our running clothes.Family Fun Weekend with Health Warrior

To our surprise a box came in the mail from Health Warrior Superfoods. PERFECT TIMING! Lil David had no problem opening up the box and expressing how excited he was to try them.

We both decided to try the Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Bar since we were getting ready for a run. And let me tell you we loved the taste. He even grabbed a couple more to have later!Family Fun Weekend with Health Warrior

Look what Health Warrior Chia Bars do!

After reading about all the good stuff in this bar, we knew we were fueled and ready to go.

  • Keeps You Full Chia seeds absorb up to 10x their weight in water so you only need 100 calories to feel full. Its mini but mighty!
  • They are Real food! Chia is the #1 ingredient and the rest of the ingredients are all real food you can pronounce.
  • Good for you, not just better for you Full of nutrients you need like omega-3s and fiber. Ounce for ounce chia has more protein than an egg, more omega 3s than salmon, more fiber than flax, more calcium than milk, and more magnesium than broccoli.
  • No Bad Stuff Vegan, soy free, dairy free, gluten free, non-GMO!

Time to RUN!

So we got dressed in our running gear and then I had to find a runner’s watch for David. We improvised (my FitBit) and we were out the door and at the store within an hour. I love how he thought my FitBit was a real watch…Family Fun Weekend with Health Warrior

At the race you could do either a half mile or full mile. We did the half since this was David’s first race and he is only 3.

Here’s our big finish when he sees Duane!–Notice he looks at his watch 4 times during the end. I’m sure his focus was to finish with a strong pace.

It was fun watching him run. And what really made my heart smile was when he said, “I love running!”Family Fun Weekend with Health Warrior

SATURDAY– Spiderman and a Scary Baby!

The weekend also had a fun Halloween 5K at our local college campus. I enjoyed a Health Warrior Vanilla Almond Chia Bar and was ready to hit the course.Family Fun Weekend with Health Warrior

You could dress up if you wanted. Spiderman won the prize for best costume! He looked awesome running!Family Fun Weekend with Health Warrior

The day ended with a fun Halloween party at my daughter’s house. Look at Lil Matt as a zombie from the Walking Dead. I can’t wait to strap running shoes on his little feet!!!Family Fun Weekend with Health Warrior

SUNDAY– More Family Time!

Sunday was a day of just hanging with the family and coloring in my new Marathon Training coloring book. Health Warrior sent this hilarious coloring book all about marathon training.Family Fun Weekend with Health Warrior

Before dinner, we decided to color the letter D page (Why D? D is for David of course!). I think he did a great job.Family Fun Weekend with Health Warrior
