You may have seen last week that I got an entry into the Rock n Roll Chicago Half for spreading the word about Humana’s cool sponsorship activities.

You may remember a while ago, I reviewed Yummari Foods’ Chia Chargers and Chia Moxie peanut butter.  I tried Chia Moxie peanut butter and was interested in their Chia Chargers endurance nuggets.
