Fall Running and Orchard Valley Giveaway!

Fall is my favorite season to run during. I'm lucky enough to live close to a really nice running trail called the Perkiomen Trail and the views along the trail during this time of year are just to die for!



I love running over the bridges, seeing all of the beautiful leaves changing colors, and just overall enjoying some time away from the grind weaving in and out of nature on the trail. The weather this time of year is just SO perfect for running as well. It's still normally brisk in the mornings when I start running but not TOO cold yet, so it's the perfect weather for knocking out some miles.

I try to get outside every Sunday and fit in a long run if my schedule allows. I had enough time the past two weeks to fit in 10 miles! My little leggies were sore come both Mondays after those runs :) Running ten miles is no joke though and I always make sure I wear a hydration belt when I'm going to be doing some serious distance because staying hydrated while running is SO important.



It's also so important to listen to your body after that long of a run: sometimes I don't eat much before I go out (I tend to run best when I don't have a huge breakfast) but then by the time I'm done running I'm HUNGRY!



The new snack wellness mixes from Orchard Valley Harvest have been the perfect post run snack for me this fall. Two new flavors were just released this month and are now available at Safeway, Albertsons and Walmart! My favorite is the Omega-3 mix which has walnuts, dried sweet carnberries and blueberries, almonds and pistachios. This little one-ounce pouch has 55% of your daily value of Alpha Lipoic Acid!

The Antioxidant Mix is really yummy as well and is a great source of Vitamin E from it's mix of roasted almonds, dried sweetened cranberries, blueberries, roasted cashews and pepitas.


The two different blends are all non-GMO, contain no artificial ingredients and are available in multi packs! The best part of these mixes though is that they are SO convenient for taking with you on the go. My hydration belt I wear while running has a small pocket in it that the little pack fit in perfectly! No extra bulk and so easy to just grab and go a perfectly portioned, healthy snack.

Even if you are not a runner, these mixes would be perfect to take outdoors for a hike this fall, out to the pumpkin patch, or any other activies you have planned this season! So tell me: what is your favorite outdoor activity to do in the fall?

  16. Fall? I live in south Texas & we barely don't have fall! Ha! When the weather cools off I am always saying, "it's running weather." My favorite thing with fall weather is being outside. Camping, running, or cooking out are my favorites.
