Best prices on Polar heart rate monitors

A Note of Thanks
     The common link that all of us share is that we are all determined to become healthier and more fit. For most of us, that means strapping on a Polar heart rate monitor and working out and training effectively. Fitness is my passion and I know many of you share that same passion.
      In my efforts to promote fitness, I try to pursue as many means as possible to spread the word of fitness and this newsletter is one of those means. Staying within that focus is important to me, but I also realize that many Internet users also shop and look for good deals and special offers. Because I get sale and special offer announcements from other websites, I have decided to pass them on to you.
    On a personal note, the reason that the newsletter has not been coming out every week is that I have been working extra hard on my websites before our daughter Carly Ann is born. We're expecting her to join us sometime this week and for the rest of this year, it will be quite hectic to say the least.
     Finally, as many of you know, I run my business single-handedly with the help of my two year old daughter, Grace. She goes to work with me every day and is the best "helper" that a Daddy could ever want. Grace and I would like to say "thank you" to each and every one of you and to wish you all a joyous and safe Thanksgiving.
