Mile Markers by Kristin Armstrong ~ my first giveaway

I've been reading Mile Markers - The 26.2 Most Important Reasons Why Women Run by Kristin Armstrong for the past week or so.  It is hands-down absolutely one of the BEST books on running and mothering that I have ever read.  It's one of those books that is making an impact on me with each page I turn.  I want every woman I know to read it, even if they don't run or aren't moms (but especially if they do and are).  I want every man who is married to a woman who runs to read it.  I've read passages out loud to my husband and re-read them over and over for myself.  I have laughed out loud.  I have cried.  Kristin is an incredibly talented writer.  Her craft with words is beautiful.  The book is a compilation of blog entries from Kristin's Mile Markers blog on Runner's World.  I've been reading her blog for a while and when I learned of this book I knew I had to read it.  It came out not long after my baby was born so it took me a while to get started but now I can't put it down.  I already know I will read it more than once and that it will have a permanent place in my nightstand so I can turn to it frequently.

I am passionate about this book and I want to share it with someone who will enjoy it as much as I do, or who will pass it along to someone they believe will benefit from it.

So, with that said...drumroll please...I am hosting my first giveaway!  The prize is a copy of this incredible book.  Here are the details:

To gain entry you have to do the following (the more you do, the more chances you have to win!).  Leave comments for me so I know you entered.

As my kindergartener would say - easy peezy, lemon squeezy.  I will announce the winner on Monday, May 2nd.


I am a follower!! Oh man, you've got me so anxious to read it, not sure I can wait until the 2nd to find out if I won! ;) I'll wait!

I follow your blog through google reader. I've had a really hard time working running or other exercise into life with kids (it was SO easy prior to being a mom!) so maybe this book will help motivate me to find workable solutions, especially with #3 due in a few weeks and too much baby weight to lose!

I am now a follower! Mile Posts sent me. =)
