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:
