MojaMix review and giveaway -- and a big congratulations.

It's Friday and I have a munch-rific review: MojaMix premium custom-mixed cereal.

Have you heard of MojaMix? It's a cereal that you create by choosing all of the ingredients using their web site and the finished product is shipped directly to you. Lauren at MojaMix asked me to check it out and let you know what I thought and I happily agreed to do so.

The MojaMix web site (here) is easy to use; you pick a base, add dried fruits, add nuts and seeds and then you're done. For my mix, I started with the Grains A Plenty (wheat, oat, rye and barley flakes with puffed rice) then added dried apricots, cranberries and apples, and finished with pecans, pistachios and chia seeds. Yeah, I know. I went a little crazy.

It was worth the craziness. The dried fruit and nuts are all high-quality and quite tasty. I'm a pecan fanatic and my mix was filled with large, fresh pecan halves. And the cranberries were huge! Lots of yum.

The only down-side to the cereal is the cost. My mix would have cost about $8 for 12 ounces (plus shipping). Now, as I said, I could taste the high quality of the ingredients and I know that you have to pay a premium for that. In my opinion, quality food is worth the price -- I'd rather have a little of something that is good and good for me than a ton of junk. But that's me.

Interested in MojaMix? Today's your lucky day because I have a free mix to give away!

Remember way back when I hosted the Strands giveaway and mentioned their contest to send one runner to the Hood to Coast Relay? Just indulge me and shake your head, "yes." Thank you.

Well here's the thing. Beth from Shut Up and Run won the contest! She's going on an all-expenses paid trip to Oregon to run the relay! Why does this make me so happy? I'll tell you why: She read about the contest here, on The Happy Runner. Woo hoo! I feel so proud . . .

Congratulations, Beth! Can't wait to hear about the race.

On that happy note, I wish you all a happy Friday and great weekend!
