Heart Smart Highway headed for MATS- Papa John’s lot







As MATS approaches in less than 10 days, the drive for truckers to not just become healthier, but to enjoy the journey of becoming healthier increases.  The words “sacrifice ” and “diet” are no longer part of the healthy trucker vocabulary. These words are being replaced with words such as, “delicious”, “flavorful”, and “lifestyle”

Here is yet another moving FaceBook group, Heart Smart Highway, who has passionately embraced this lifestyle and is encouraging others to do the same.

Heart Smart Highway is proud to announce its coming arrival at the Papa Johns Parking lot during the Mid America Truck Show March 26th – 28th. Heart Smart Highway founder Jeannie Lennox and Les Willis of Godspeed Expediters invite you to start your MATS
